A Confession | Navy Biker Jacket

I have a confession to make. I'm not good with long coats and when I went to put on my Marks & Spencer coat from this previous post on the school run, I just couldn't as it felt too long and big on me. Maybe it wasn't cold or wet enough and I felt too covered up? Maybe I'm just always destined to have wet legs in the rain?

I decided to return it for the size down but it still felt too big. All while the advert for the coat kept popping up on my social media making me want it even more!

When I went back to see if there was a size 6 to try on (there wasn't), I spotted a navy biker and suddenly it all fell into place. When I spotted a fab navy floral midi dress close by, I realised that I could swap the trench for BOTH of these items and once that realisation hit, it was a deal done. Farewell gorgeous trench coat which would keep me warm and dry. 

I may regret this decision but in the meantime, Jess my fabulous photographer Instagram friend took these gorgeous photos of my new navy ensemble....look at how I'm laughing off the colder, wetter days ahead.....I'll be FINE in my short jacket and floaty dress
Navy Ankle Boots - Ash (sale purchase)
Navy Cross Body Bag - Yoshi (past season)

Of course, that still leaves me with a trench coat gap in my wardrobe but it's ok - I've spotted this bottle green one and I'm sitting tight for the next 20% off :)




  1. I get at least as much wear (if not more) out of my navy leather jacket as I do my winter coats, in fact last winter I didn't wear my warmest coat once!
    Considering my leather is only about two years old, cost per wear is down to about £1!
    My leather is perfect for those cooler mornings, and I've been known to take it and a lightweight short raincoat for a Christmas break (will be doing so again this weekend). Strangly the raincoat doesn't see much action on this sort of break!

  2. Hello! Not visited for a while so I'm here for a nice catch up :) I'll be featuring the berry version of this jacket on my blog #tidylife soon! I must say I was really tempted by the navy though; I'd like to have both if I'm honest :) It definitely looks fab on you - love the photos! xx
