Coral Coat, Denim & Navy Ash Jalouse!

You know you're well and truly into the school term when the nit letters start coming home from school. Now that the girls are in separate classes, I am getting one pretty much every week. So yet another string to my bow - nit nurse in training - as we comb and comb the girls' hair every few days and spray them every morning pre-school with a nit-repellant spray. Fingers crossed they stay away and I'm very relieved by my friend Elizabeth's assurance that they don't like coloured hair - at last a reason to be thankful for my greys!


This past week was much cooler also so my Almost Famous coral coat come out a couple of times. In these photos, I wore it with double denim. Wearable for the school run I think as long as you keep the denim colour a bit different. I like a dark jean with a lighter shirt.

Time to welcome the latest addition to my wardrobe - long lusted after Navy Suede Ash Jalouse's (or should that be Jalousi??!). I have sold on eBay, on the blog and via consignment in Deja Vu and last week finally had enough to order them. IN LOVE. They are the perfect height for me and have just the right amount of 'point'. Of course, I'm now frantically selling again to cover the cost of a black pair!


Hope your Monday went well. First thing tomorrow, I'll be reporting back on some exciting news from Next for Northern Ireland customers. Keep an eye on Twitter and Instagram to find out first!

  1. I don't envy the nit-combing! Thankfully that's all stopped in our house. Great look Avril, that coat is just lovely, I have some grey Ash Jalouse on their way, I love them for all the same reasons you mentioned, maybe navy would be a good colour to save up for too xx

  4. I really love that coat on you, fabulous colour. I'm so jealous of the Ash boots, they are on my wish list for Autumn in the taupe or grey colour, but the navy is so versatile. Looking forward to hearing about this Next news!

  6. It was so lovely to meet your new Ash boots in person this morning Avril... I like them better than my taupe ones - and you know what that means, right?!

  8. Iove them! Can you believe I sold a pair on ebay in Navy about 18mths ago, hardly worn ..... I was having a fat day and felt they didn't suit me. Huge huge regret over that impluse bit of ebaying .... I think it was my hormones after having L! Enjoying wearing them, it's lovely to get something you have been wanting for awhile. X

  9. You have so many nice coats Avril. This one is such a beautiful colour.

    My coats are all still hidden in the wardrobe. It's wet so warm enough still for jackets although I wore my biker jacket to town today and was absolutely roasting!

  11. They are so gorgeous in the navy, but as I have them in grey I can't justify another pair! And what a perfect colour the coat is for you - fab outfit!

  12. Super jealous about the jalouse - they just don't work for me, very tempted to try again but I already have some navy boots that I haven't worn much. Love that Coat just what we need to inject a big of colour on these dull days!

  13. I'm obsessed with find a good pair of leather navy boots this season, so hard to find a pair!

  14. I love that coat colour on you. I am still pondering over the Ash boots. I am getting worse and I get older! H xx

  15. Hi Avril, you look great, I love that coat! Can I ask you a question about the boots, I've just got them in the taupe colour which I love (although they're not quite as comfortable as I'd hoped - yet?!?) but what do you wear under them if you're not wearing them with jeans tucked in? I have some quite low sports socks which I wear with other similar boots, but the v in the front of the Jalouse is lower, so they show - not a good look!! Thanks, Kate

  16. Hi Kate - so I need to blog about this. I wear a particular type of sport sock that you can get in TK Maxx. They're converse chuck ones...really dodgy colours but they are the only ones that don't show under my low cut boots. They are always in my local TKM - in fact, I picked up a 3 pack last week for £4.99 but if you can't get to a TK, I see them online in Bank: http://www.bankfashion.co.uk/products/converse-3-pack-chuck-socks/142461

    PS they will help with the comfort too as they are quite thick but soft x

  17. That's great Avril, thanks. It must be fate, I rarely get to tk maxx (too dangerous and too time consuming) but a friend and I have just arranged to go on Tuesday, partly because the branches here have started stocking neom candles and room fragrance, and she's just bought the jalouse in navy and was having similar issues - perfect timing!

  18. The boots are gorgeous Avril & navy ones are so hard to come by! Love the double denim & coral too! Ax
