New Coat by Apricot Clothing

Good afternoon lovely people!

Hopefully you're enjoying the festive break and getting some good R&R.

I really enjoyed Christmas this year and am enjoying spending time with loved ones.

One of my favourite pressies was something I spotted at Tynwald Mills by UK label, Apricot Clothing.

I introduce to you, the Jacquard Coat in black:

I love the patterned detailing and the military style buttons. There's a definite nod to Karen Millen in terms of the structure and design.

The best news is its price point. At £49 this was about a third of my expected cost and I thought it'd be rude not to!

The coat isn't dry clean. The label says it needs to be cold washed. This could be a good or bad thing. On the one hand it cuts the cost and horrible smell of dry cleaning (is it just me who hates the smell?). That said, I'll edit this post with how well the coat washes.

I hadn't heard of this brand before so I checked out its website. Other eye-catching items for me are:

Night Forest 3 Button Tunic

Perfect paired with opaque tights, boots and a red coat.

Cotton Shirt Dress

With skinny jeans or leggings.

Big Flower Belt Dress

Could be worn casually with skinny jeans or with tights for a night out. The colours of the flowers are perfect to use for accessorising.

I'll try an do an outfit of the day with my new coat as the website photo doesn't do it justice. :)

Thanks for stopping by to read my blog post. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Love Lottie xoxo

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone's having a fantastic holiday, getting thoroughly spoilt on Christmas day!

It's been a lovely, romantic time for me. Product reviews on some of my pressies will be up soon as they were lots of beauty products and some clothes too.

Thank you supporting my blog this year!

Lots of love C x
