I have been after a classic pea coat for ages. It sums up weekend, off duty dressing for me. Wear with a stripe top, ripped jeans and you're pretty much close to the Parisian dream. This Jigsaw one is really good quality - you get what you pay for - but it's also on the reasonable side of the wool coat scale (there is also a super affordable version from Next I borrowed for my Paris trip on instagram). Looking forward to wearing this with a chunky poloneck later on in the season.
I was chatting to my mum the other day, and we both kind of agreed that a coat was where we'd spend our money. A classic coat is something you'll have for years - and you can't go wrong with navy, camel or grey. The pea coat is the perfect outerwear piece for our surprisingly warm October, too.
Can we also appreciate this amazing fringed bag from Next? It comes with a long strap too. I picked it for my trip to Paris (where I'm working on a Paris Fashion Week instagram takeover for Next) - but I couldn't wait to use it!
