First up, a camel coat. I'm frustrated at this gap in my wardrobe. For the past couple of seasons, I've tried to find one that suits me and I know now that the traditional male single breasted shape isn't good on me. Then I saw this beauty on the Hush website and I reckon it's a winner with the high neckline and collar...adore how it's styled here too. An investment piece for sure but you can't go wrong with a classic piece like this.
Hush Michelle Coat - Camel
Next up, it's a Navy jacket and for this, I'm looking something that doesn't resemble anything you'd wear to an office....so no collars and not too dressy. Currently, I'm lusting after the Emilia Biker from Boden and I hope it comes with the party set for my party in October so I can try before I buy.
Boden Emilia Biker Jacket - Navy (also available in Pewter)
and while I'm talking about Boden, I was alerted to the fact that their iconic breton top now comes in a longer length. So excited about his as I find their regular length a bit short. There are a few different colours available but this is my first choice...the classic navy and ivory:
Boden Long Line Long Sleeved Breton
Shoes-wise, I'm badly in need of some ballet pumps as my black and navy ones are both at the end of their tether. These Next ones look good in the black. They're not going to rock the fashion world but I wear my old pair lots so they're an essential wardrobe staple for me. I'm not so keen on the navy suede but will report back on both colours when I order:
Leather Ballerina - Next
The next thing I'm searching high and low for is a pair of long culottes....or cropped wide trousers. I can't seem to get the right length though. I'm hoping to channel something like this (don't laugh....it will be a loose Belfast appropriate interpretation)
Cropped Wide Leg Trousers - Topshop
....and I've seen a few possibilities in Zara so have a trip to Belfast planned the week the kids go back to school as I would like to try before I buy. It may be an awful trouser shape on my short arse legs!
Finally finally....I want to add a grey cross-body to my handbag collection but cannot find anything that I like online. But I did spot these two beauties in House of Fraser yesterday!

Black Top - F&F at Tesco
