Weather Vain

coat - asos, shirt - zara, culottes -ymc, shoes - schuh, belt - vintage, hat - urban outfitters

I purchased this summer coat from asos last week when it was all cold and wet and miserable. Of course now the weather just happened to be beautiful and warm, curses! Still, it will come in useful given we aren't prone to sunny summer days that often!

I do feel like I'm rather channelling Alexa Chung in this outfit - what can I say? The inner hipster has been released! I really love the masculine tailoring of my coat, and the colour is such a gorgeous tobacco-brown. I considered opting for a classic mac style, but I'm glad I went for something a bit different in the end.

Yes that jacket would be perfect for last week's weather. And of course, now that I'll leave the country the warm weather arrives... :|

You look gorgeous! And yes I can see a lot of Alexa Chung there ;)

Jo said...

Peacock's Hat said...

You look amazing... it's such a wonderfully chic and tomboyish outfit. I really wish I could get away with the whole buttoning my shirts to the neck thing, but I know I'd look like I had deflated balloons for boobs and a stump for a neck! The classic colour combination is really nice too.

Tasha said...

Such a lovely outfit! It looks so effortlessly cute!

Those are cullottes? Awesome, I thought it was a skirt and now I want a pair! Great use of proportion. The coat is a little futuristic. I like.

We need coats 11 months of the year! That coat looks fab. I see the Alexa inspiration in the look, and you're totally pulling it off well (probably even better than Alexa herself). Love the shoes a lot.

I am completely in love with this outfit. And yes, I definitely see what you mean with the Alexa Chung similarities :)
I love your loafers too! xx

Rachel said...

I'm sure the weather will soon get back to its usual rainy self...we're so cynical haha. The coat, and outfit in general, looks fab x

I wore a winter coat this morning!! It is still freezing here! (Vancouver B.C. Canada). Somthing like that would be usable year round here!! You need a jacket, sunglasses and an umbrella everywhere you go!!

I fear beginning of next week the coat will come in handy again... which is sad for us weatherwise, but good sartorially - because it looks really lovely on you. Great buy! xo

Susie said...

I love this look! And I LOVE your pose in the first picture--totally working it!

Harriet you look absolutely STUNNING. I am very jealous of that hat, those shoes and that lovely coat. I think you look much better than Alexa...

beingdena said...

I really like this coat, the color is fab. Alos love the shirt. Zara does great ones. Hope I get to see you at the Aussie event on the 25th.

You look like a little detective with the hat and trench coat hehe :)

I am so not used to seeing summer jackets! where I am, you never ever need one! Our average temperature if 75-90 Fahrenheit. Or 21-30 Celsius! I love your hat- you look so cute in it, and you always have the best lipstick colors!

Gorgeous coat! You look lovely!

Now this is what I would call Stylish, personal, individual. This ensemble is so You. It reflects your personality and the way you flirt with fashion. I fancy the complete outift;-)
