Challenge Day 21: Belt your outerwear.

Well the “challenge gods” were shining on me today (or so I thought) ..After 30 minutes of trying to make my coats look nice with various belts all of which made me look like a sack of spuds tied in the middle, a delivery from French Connection arrived with a cream trench coat WITH belt. Brilliant! my challenge is done…Ummm.

 I have been looking for a beige/tan coloured classic trench coat for a while and thought I had found the perfect one. It is totally the wrong colour it looked darker on the picture and wouldn’t last two minutes with a sticky fingered toddler who wants picking up every second (like me, he is not fond of walking) and it is far to stiff. The fabric is quite thick and doesn’t move like the cotton ones I am in search of. So please if you have seen the elusive trench coat I am after please tell me.

So I have half filled the challenge…… What do you think to this trench coat?

I wore it with some black leather and jersey trousers, black shirt, tartan scarf and skater shoes.

I hope to be back on form tomorrow because it is a challenge with my name on it.
