ASOS trench coat
RIVER ISLAND shorts & watch
After a week or so of beautiful sunshine and hot weather, the sun has finally hidden away behind some clouds, cooling it down just enough for me to wear my new summer coat. Hoorah! I've been lusting after trench coats recently (as you'll know if you read my last post) and this sleeveless ASOS creation is a subtle twist on the classic, making it just that tiny bit more practical for the warmer weather.
Of course I kept the look monochrome and teamed it with my black high waisted shorts, which are basically the summer equivalent of my black Leigh jeans, and a gingham crop top. I also discarded my usual minimal heeled sandals in favour of my trusty Aldo ankle boots for a more casual vibe.
A quick note: Fashion Chick are holding their amazing competition to win a trip to Amsterdam fashion week again this season! I think this is a perfect summer edition outfit for AFW. Chic and timeless monochrome with some stand out, on trend pieces such as the gingham Bardot crop and the sleeveless trench. I hope you all like my entry, and don't forget to enter yourselves too if you want to be in with a chance of attending an international fashion week!
Have a great day guys.
PS. I probably should have ironed my coat.
