Coated Skinnies & Navy Pea Coat for #realmomstyle

You might remember I joined up with some other mum bloggers for #realmomstyle last Monday. It's a really great way to touch base with other bloggers and introduce School Gate Style readers to some super stylish mums out there. The way it works is that myself and a bunch of other mum bloggers link up to a weekly style post - this week it's being hosted by Ellen at Thrifty & Chic Mom. So it's a one stop shop of style!
Now in reality today I'm sporting my tracksuit bottoms and fleece thanks to a physio appointment for my troublesome back so instead I'm sharing what I wore on Friday..building up from a base outfit of dark green coated skinny jeans, denim shirt, white vest and brown suede boots. 
 This photo is a proper nosy concerned neighbour pose as I heard a noise from next door's garden. Neighbourhood Watch would be proud of me :)
I added on some accessories - a statement necklace and a scarf that I ordered as a sample for the shop. It was an immediate definite for the shop but when I went back to order it, it was out of stock at my wholesaler :( I'll keep an eye out for it in the coming weeks and you'll be the first to hear if I manage to secure some.
 My navy peacoat, handbag & sunnies finish it off...and I'm good to go!
Navy Pea Coat - BHS
Green Coated Skinnies - Zara (similar herehere)
White Vest - Primark
Denim Shirt - Boden
Black/Brown Leather Bag - Fossil c/o Menarys
Brown Suede Boots (used to be beige) - Office (similar here & here)
Pandora Bracelet
Sunglasses - TK Maxx
I hope you'll take a moment to check out the other #realmomstyle links on Ellen's post. Meanwhile, I'll be back tomorrow with a gorgeous Valentines & Mother's Day present idea.

  11. Love the necklace - that's really nice. Love the colour in the scarf as well !!
    The coat is really nice as well - I'm intrigued though as to why they are called Peacoats?

    1. Thanks Paul! Yes - it's a funny term. I didn't really know till I googled it and found this on Wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pea_coat
      So *strictly* speaking, mine isn't pea as it's not double breasted! Av
