MY NEW DUSTY PINK COAT

In the last couple of weeks the temperature in Sydney dropped so drastically that we finally got the message -  winter is just around the corner.  Time to pack away shirts, thongs and cossies and get out the coats, jumpers and boots.

Winter is not my favourite time of the year but this season I have something to look forward to wear - my new Victoria and Woods coat.

Since I left the corporate world, my wardrobe has become much more informal.  I still have a long woolen coat which I bought many years ago and wear it when we go to the Opera or to a posh dinner party.  My most go to winter overcoat is my black puffy jacket that I wear for a walk or to go to the gym.  During the last few years they have become hugely popular in Australia and people wear them everywhere.

I feel that I need something to wear in between the two - a mid-length coat that while looking smart to wear over a dress or a skirt, at the same time would be casual enough to be paired with jeans or slacks.  And preferably in a light fun colour.

Wondering through the racks of clothes during the End of the Year Sale at David Jones department store, I came across the Victoria and Woods counter where I spotted a coat that was exactly what I was looking for.  I must admit, due to its dusty pink colour, it was hard to miss☺.  Did I mention that it was on sale?  It was too hard to resist.

It is not cold enough in Sydney to wear the coat yet so I am just modelling it for you.  The dress underneath is also from Victoria and Woods.  If you are a regular reader, you might recall my recent post about this sport luxe LBD and in case you missed it, here is the link.

  4. That's a great coat and will be perfect for autumn and spring. It's strange to think that as we start getting our summer clothes out, here in the UK, you're getting your winter clothes ready. I'd love to see you join my Wednesday link up, #WowOnWednesday.

  13. Wow, this is another good shot. My favorite combination of color. But I am wondering if a plump of rose with the black will be even more fabulous?

  14. Beautiful outfit. I just loved this shade of pink which is very soft and mild pink. It totally compliments the black top. The texture of the coat seems nice it must be really comfortable to wear.
