FM40 STYLE | A FEATHER IN MY CAP





B E A C H  A U T U M N  W A L K S



We love living by the coast and a walk along the beach is always good for the soul. As the weather gets a bit chiller and often breezy wrapping up for our walks is now essential. I always wear my trusted Le Chameau wellies and my warm Moncler coat I've had a few years.

I love hats, especially fedoras hats. I was recently contacted by Bon-Clic-Bon-Genre to see if I would like to design my own tailor made hat




T A I L O R E D   M A D E 






I jumped at this opportunity! Firstly, I picked the style of hat I wanted, I chose the Heritage Fedora and then the colour of my hat. Then, came the exciting bit ...... choosing a braid and adding a feather trim. I went for a traditional braid, but in a contrast colour to my black hat, grey. This colour complemented the black and white feather I really wanted perfectly. 

The style and colour combination of my hat works well with my walking clothes and also my smarter coats too. 




A  F E A T H E R  I N  Y O U R  C A P






I am delighted with my hat, the quality and the fact I had a hand in designing it myself. The turnaround time was pretty impressive - my hat was with me within the week. There are many styles of hats and price points available at Bon-Clic-Bon-Genre


So, if you are a hat lover like me then you need to have a look on Bon-Clic-Bon-Genre's website

FM40 STYLE | MANGO LEOPARD LOVE




L E O P A R D  L O V E



Not known for being a lover of prints and patterns ..... I do love a little Leopard! 

I consider it a neutral print as it mixes perfect with the classic colour palette I love.... worn correctly it can look very expensive. There is a huge amount of leopard this season and many places have gone OTT with it (Zara  ... I am talking about you) and a lot of it looks rather cheap looking as they have used the yellow undertone rather than the expensive camel, black and brown tones. 

This skirt by another Spanish brand is on the other hand AMAZING! If I worked in the corporate world and had to dress smart daily this would be my WOW outfit on a Friday. In my lifestyle this outfit would work well for a special Sunday lunch out. 



SHOP THE OUTFIT





Isn't it fabulous? It would be really flattering too because of the A-Line shape and weight of fabric. Let's discuss those knee high boots, I think they are the best black leather knee highs about on the high street.  The suedette version are a great option also if you are on a budget.

FM40 STYLE | IT'S A WRAP




A CLASSIC WRAP CAMEL COAT 



I have, as many of you know a Jaeger camel wrap coat from a few seasons back that is very reminiscent of a far more expensive Marmara coat. The beauty of this style of coat (apart from they never date) is it that they can be dressed up or down and can be worn belted or loose. The camel coat above is also in the same style and is from Iris and Ink's AW collection.

Iris and Ink if you don't know it , is the OUTNET's own signature brand and it is well worth checking out. It is renowned for smart colour palettes, wearable pieces and most importantly marked at an affordable luxury price point (think high end high street).

All the clothes above (apart from the accessories) are from Iris and Ink's AW collection.  I have styled this stunning camel coat in a polished casual look of jeans, knit and trainers. Imagine how stunning this coat would over an LBD for instance.

I particularly like that jumper which comes in three different colours ivory, navy and red (see them here).

Iris & Ink's full collection can be seen here.
