Sheer Socks and Winter Coats

It’s officially Autumn guys!  Pumpkin spiced lattes are bake in store, chocolate santas adorn supermarket shelves and it it time to crack out the “Winter Coat.”  It was something that growing up I dreaded (along with getting my feet measured at Clarks and buying the trousers from M&S) but it’s now one of my favourite things to buy. I love a good coat. I have A LOT of coats. A LOT. What I didn’t have however was a parka. How did I even manage that?


Parka – H! by Henry Holland at Debenhams*
Dress, socks and necklace-Primark
Shoes – New Look
Bag – Baia

Debenhams however came to my rescue and answered all my winter coat prayers with this little beauty from Henry Holland. I’ve been meaning to find the perfect parka for years but never quite found the one. I think this guy is pretty much as close as I could hope to get. Seriously – that light pink faux fur trim is unbelievable (and oh snap, detachable.)

I’ve pretty much been living in it since I got it, though pairing it with some pretty cheap and cheerful staples has been my modus operanti as of late.  It’s all about the bells and whistles though. My baia bag with black furry pom pom, a simple gold chain and my favourite – cracking out the sheer socks. Only problem with these guys is that they don’t really last more than one wear because they’re so thin. They look great for the duration though right?

Have you got any A/W staples?
