Trench Coat & Trainers for #realmomstyle

After seeing this look on Ann-Marie's blog, I just had to recreate it. It's the perfect combination of dressy and casual and a great one for any of you out there who are finding the trainer trend a hard one to incorporate into your wardrobe..
Trench Coat - Zara (old, thrifted - similar here, herehere)
Jeans - Gap
Trainers - Onitsuka Tiger
Navy Wool Roll Neck - Hobbs
Scarf - Next (old)
Navy Cross Body - Boden
(currently sold out but does come back into stock now and again on that link)

I wore this outfit into Belfast to visit George's Market with the kids and I'm loving it as it's so easy to wear. I felt casual but smart at the same time...it's one I'm definitely going to wear a version of again.
So tell me, if you're a reluctant trainer wearer, does this help?!
Linking up with the other stylish mums on #realmomstyle this week. Head over to the gorgeous Momma in Flip Flops to find the linky, check out some other stylish mums and add your outfit too..

  1. This is amazing Avril! Loved it on Ann-Marie and love it on you. You are so right - it IS dressy but casual all at once and the trainers just work so well - genius! (That's from a still doubtful trainer-wearer - at least when non-exercising...) Think you are convincing me..... Axx

  8. Avril you work it well! This look looks great on you, I found it easier to dip my toes into the trainer trend this way. I am loving the Boden cross body bag, gutted I overlooked this bag, I didn't realise it was a crossbody one just thought it was a wrist strap....silly me. Thank you for the mention! xx
