Kelly Green

My maiden name is Kelly so I'm rather drawn to the colour even though it's a little cooler than I should wear with my colouring. I spotted this Zara coat in Deja Vu today and brought it home on appro (amazing service that Ruth offers) and although it is quite lightweight, I think I'm going to keep it as it's just such a great antidote to the rubbish weather and our warm winter (so far) lends itself well to a coat of this weight.

Wearing it today with a very simple jeans and white tee combo. I've been going majorly back to basics with my wardrobe these past few weeks and have a post coming up on some of the best basic tops I've found on the high street. And I'm talking really basic - black, grey, white and cream. Patterns are off the menu for the time being - ever had that happen to you? Even a stripe is feeling like a bit too much - who'd have thought?!

Also loving these jeans which I picked up in TK Maxx by a company I'd not heard of before - Kings of Indigo. Nice fit and just the right amount of distressing for less than £25 (RRP £97) - result.

Before I go, two things to tell you about. Firstly, I saw lots of Boden in TK Maxx yesterday so if you're a fan, you might want to take a look in your local store. There's some of it online on this link and prices are good. Also, there's 20% off coats and jackets in M&S on this link - the unseasonably warm weather is definitely playing havoc in the shops so make the most of the opportunity!




  1. Gorgeous coat Avril. Green's a funny one isn't it. Even though you get 'cooler' greens, they can still look great on warmer skinned girls.Well that's my theory anyway and I'm sticking to it. You look lovely xx

  2. Love that coat Avril! I wanted to get the burgundy version of it that Zara have done this season but it's sold out online and I haven't been able to pick up one instore either! The style is fab for dressing up or down and the green is amazing on you! What a find with the jeans too! xx

  3. I think you look beautiful. The colour suits you and I love the simplicity of the whole look. Perfect. xxx

  4. Ah amazing, thanks for the Boden tip! Off to browse online!

  5. Love it! You always look fabulous in green. By the way, my maiden name was Kelly too! Lynne xx

  6. I remember trying on that coat last year when Kat wore it to our meet up. Really love it .. but I'd feel very self-conscious in that colour in Dublin! Loving the jeans ... can't beat a bit of TK Maxx!
