My Style Diary - The Silk Trench

Hello Hello

So I'm finally back after a little blogging break (an unintentional break that is - it's been a busy week!)
I love Sunday mornings - sitting here with my cup of tea and my laptop with the sun shining and the birds chirping and finally getting to type up this post. I've been trying to just appreciate and notice all those "little moments of perfection" lately, and this has got to be one of them :)

This is one of my "It's winter. I want to look nice but it's too bloody cold and I just want to wear jeans" kind of outfits.  Sometimes there are nights when you need to dress up a little, but for some reason you're just not in the mood to wear anything too fussy. These nights happen to me rather frequently in winter and I tend to fall back on my fail safe black jeans, black top and heels combo. That's when I pull out one of my favourite coats - this silk trench from Witchery, which adds just a touch of luxury and (I like to think at least) sophistication to an otherwise very simple look. 

This trench coat was a great sale find a couple of years back, and while I don't wear it all the time, it always feels very special when I pull it out :)

Anyway, I hope you're having a fab Sunday!

Lots of Love

Coat - Witchery

  1. It is nice to have a break from blogging, isn't it? Your outfits always look so sophisticated and this one is no different! You look so classy in all black, the necklace completes the outfit! xxx

  2. Lauren, I love your style and outfits in this post. It's very casual chic!

  3. Oh man I know exactly that feeling on Winter evenings. The number of times I've ventured out to dinner or elsewhere in a skirt and have such huuuuuge regrets!! This Winter my tactic has basically been all black + a snazzy coat and jewellery. It is so easy and comfy and warm!! No one looks elegant in goosebumps haha

    1. - goosebumps are not the best look! :p
      Fortunately we don't have to deal with crazy cold here (I don't think I'd survive very well!) xx

  4. You look beautiful Lauren, absolutely beautiful! <3

    Glad to have you back! My blogging breaks are usually unintentionally these days too haha ;) The days and weeks just go so fast I can't catch up with them ;) Loving your outfit, the black peplum top and jeans go so well together, and the wine coloured heels just add a perfect pop of Autumnal colour to proceedings! I love your lip colour too! The trench is so utterly stylish and brings the perfect finish to the outfit. You're gonna hate me for saying this but your winter inspo is definitely making me a bit jealous that it's Winter where you are! :)

    1. Thank you!
      Ahh... the grass is always greener isn't it? :p I've decided I'm going to try to enjoy and make the most of the cooler weather while it lasts instead of longing for summer. Key word being "try" :p
