I've always wanted to buy myself a red coat but never felt brave enough. Actually when I think about it it has nothing to do with courage but wearability. Practicality I just could not imagine wearing a red coat 24/7. So I kept telling myself that once I have my must have coats in more versatile colours like black and brown then I could certainly extend my winter coat collection by adding more colour.
But last year I chickened out again and bought a lambswool burnt orange coat which I simply love and just had to buy. Today however I popped into Marks and Spencer to get some sandwiches and like a bee to honey couldn't resist this red corduroy coat from M&S' Per Una collection.
Mind you it is not just any red coat but the shape, texture and inner lining really appealed to me. Sometimes I do wish I could wear some coats inside out as the inner lining are becoming more and more of a fashion statement. I do also like Marks and Spencer's approach to accessorizng their clothes range with scarves and unique jewellery, in this case adding a black snood to the red coat So can't wait to wear my long awaited red coat and since I have to drag myself out in a bit later to take my son swimming, which I'm absolutely dreading since its cold and wet, I'm gonna cheer myself up by wearing my new red coat.
