Neutrals and Berry Tones: Great Plains camel coat, Marks & Spencer brwon button up skirt

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week has got off to a great start. When Sonja chose brown as last month’s Match Made in Seven it nudged me into wearing more chocolately shades. I saw this skirt and jumper on sale at Marks & Spencer just after Christmas – I paid less than £30 for both. Although I wasn’t intending to wear the skirt and jumper together I like the combination of neutrals and berry tones. I think both are now sold out online but you might find them in store; I’ve seen the jumper in a grey and purple colour combination.

My long camel coat pulls the colours together; this coat is one of my Winter favourites. A classic camel coat is a wardrobe hero, but I waited so long before buying one. I’ve worn this coat so much so it’s been a great investment (although I bought it heavily discounted from Secret Sales). I picked out the burgundy in the jumper with my bag and hat. For a fun touch I added my new hedgehog brooch which I bought on eBay. I love animal-themed jewellery 🙂

Do you have a classic camel coat?

    What an elegant look, Emma. I love the pop of color in the berry, and it looks gorgeous with all your brown tones. That coat is movie star, my friend! And thanks for the wonderful surprise of posting my photo! So nice, and much appreciated. Especially with all the amazing looks to choose from!

    I love that colour combination, Emma. And that brooch is super cute! I’ve always admired camel coats like yours – they really do look super stylish but sadly, camel colour looks absolutely hideous on me lol!!!

    I was just thinking I need to wear my brown skirt this weekend and decide if it is going to stay in my closet. I never reach for it but this gives me a couple of ideas as far as colors and what I can try with it.

    What a fabulous outfit! You look fantastic! I’m pretty picky about brown, but that chocolate shade is so yummy, and really sets of the berry shades.
