Pink jumper: Pixie Market. Skirt: H&M. Try Topshop. Bag and Sunglasses: Kurt Geiger.  Try Miu Miu. Leather jacket: Trash & Vaudeville. Brogues: Trash & Vaudeville. Try Pedder Red. Bracelets: PANDORA

I reckon that we're counting down the number of days we can wear skirts with bare legs so I'm getting them in now.

The only accents are these two delicate PANDORA ESSENCE COLLECTION bracelets. I picked charms with names with a personal significance to me, including spirituality, curiosity, peace, respect and strength.

The baby pink jumper is a find from Pixie Market. I can see it contrasted with black leather but for now I kept everything bright with all white and the silver winkle picker brogues.

 I will be at the PANDORA store on November 5th from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M.!  I rarely get to meet readers face to face so I would love to see you there for a drink and a chin wag (chat) on anything; play dress-up with PANDORA Jewelry pieces,  shop and offer styling/blogging tips - you name it!

I'll have my Nikon with me so be ready to get snapped!

The Mens Suit

adidas stan smith

The best part about finding a suit for women is not limiting yourself to any style, cut or sex.

Mens suit: Kenneth Cole.  Try Reiss, Topshop or Joseph jacket and matching trousers set.  Shoes: Adidas Stan Smith.  Try Topshop or basic Chuck Taylors. Shades: Ray-Ban. Lipstick: MAC Lady Danger

 I got this one at Kenneth Cole in their mens section - love finding stuff amongst men. 

I asked for anything that had a slim cut and walked out with this black one.  It doesn't matter to me if the fit was slightly off ie. bigger than planned since a slouchier fit is so damn cool.  Actually that's the next one that I'd look for.  Just size up two or three numbers.

Either way it feels good just to try them on and notice the little differences in how they're made for  men versus women e.g inside jacket pockets.  Brilliant but God knows why they don't do that for women??

Teddy Coats

I am looking for the perfect oversized teddy coat and each winter it's getting easier and easier to find them. Above are nine for starters.   I used to have one about three years ago but got rid of it because the quality wasn't there. I want one that you can just throw on, looks good and you are out the door.

I saw some cool ones this week and photos that I took of women wearing fuzzy teddy coats in super easy ways.  Just add skinny denim or leather.  Done!

1. Topshop patch work throw on coat
2.  Elizabeth & James boyfriend coat
3.  Warehouse oversized pocket teddy coat
4. ACNE Studios Velocite coat. I saw this budget version from Warehouse.
5.  Topshop tall teddy coat. Also this one from Asos.
6.  Coach oversized coat
7.  Warehouse contrast cream toggle coat
8. Sonia by Sonia Rykiel oversized teddy coat
9.  Topshop throw on coat
