Camel Coat and Grey Baker Boy Hat + Link Up

Camel Coat and Grey Baker Boy Hat

This week marks the first anniversary of the Style With a Smile link up! Thanks so much to you all for visiting, linking up and commenting every week – I really appreciate your support 🙂

I’ve been wearing this long camel coat and grey baker boy hat on repeat over the winter.

To mix things up a bit we shot these photos in my lunch break near MediaCity. Don’t be fooled by the bright blue sky – it was bitterly cold! I’ve been wearing this camel coat and grey baker boy hat on repeat over the winter. I’d been looking for a good quality, classic camel coat for ages and came across this one from Great Plains on sale for about £30 back in the summer.

I often buy clothes out of season and store them away, even though it feels a bit odd buying a winter coat in summer. Sales are great for picking up classic items at a bargain price, and a camel coat will never go out of fashion. I added my cute wooden fox brooch, which I bought on eBay, to add detail.

The boots just happen to be the exact same shade of tan as the trousers which creates a leg-lengthening effect.

My favourite style of jumper this season is most definitely the turtleneck. I used to avoid them for fear of looking too chunky on my top half, but I’ve discovered that as long as they fit well and aren’t too bulky, they can be flattering on an ample bosom. Paired with the tan flared trousers the outfit has a bit of a 70s vibe. The boots just happen to be the exact same shade of tan as the trousers which creates a leg-lengthening effect.

I bought this grey baker boy hat from a market stall in Plouha – a small town on the north coast of Brittany where my dad lives. It was rather expensive – almost 50 euros – but in terms of pay per wear it has proved to be one of my best buys. A lot of hats are too tight on me and leave a mark on my forehead (as well as flattening my hair) but this one fits perfectly.

This cobalt pashmina is one of my favourites, and I take it with me when I go on holiday to use as a cover up on cool evenings.

Even with a turtleneck jumper, I still needed a scarf. This cobalt pashmina is one of my favourites, and I take it with me when I go on holiday to use as a cover up on cool evenings. I have another one in grey but I prefer the bright blue for a shot of much-needed colour on cold, winter days. Shortly after we took these photos the sun disappeared and the temperature dropped even more, so we dived into a nearby restaurant for a plate of warming pasta – I have to keep my long-suffering photographer (aka the husband) rewarded 😉

Is it cold in your part of the world? What are your winter wardrobe favourites?

  1. I love the blue with the camel it is so pretty! I think everyone should have a camel coat but I do not. I will be looking for one now!

  2. Loving the blue and camel together!!!!

  3. I love a camel coat! So classic.

    It has been VERY cold here in New York. We had about a 10-day stretch of highs in the teens, lows in the single digits or lower. #whydoiliveinaplacewheretheairhurtsmyface My not-at-work uniform in the winter is jeans and a long turtleneck…layered over long silk underwear if it’s REALLY cold. It’s not showstopping but it keeps me from being miserable all winter!
