The leaves are starting to change, the days are shorter and there was a distinct chill in the air this morning. Autumn is on. it’s. way. And I for one, am really pleased. Time to put away those summer tees and sandals and start thinking fine knits, ankle boots and coats.

This week I am delighted to be featuring a Winter Coat collaboration with Shop Formula. Shop Formula are an online boutique known for their great mix of established brands and emerging labels. I was initially drawn to the online store because of it’s classic, wearable fashion as well as trend-led pieces – the perfect combo.

Today is the first in a series of three posts this week where I have styled three coats picked by Shop Formula and all available to buy online.

The only way that I was going to style these coats was exactly how I would wear them. The variation in my lifestyle of doing the school run and my blogging (and now shop) work means that I can’t afford to be precious about my clothes but I also want to look smart – it’s also a must to be comfy and warm. I live in jeans and jumpers in the autumn and winter, so they had to work within all these parameters.

I was a little concerned at first about the cropped sleeves but I love the way the colour pop comes through.

Not that I needed it for warmth on the day that we shot these photos but you could feel how cosy it was and despite the 20degree weather I didn’t want to take it off. That was the warm and cosy box ticked. It was perfect with these jeans too. Winner.

It wasn’t heavy either so would make the perfect throw on as the temperatures start to drop.

Shop Formula have dressed the Baum und Pferdgarten coat up with super skinnies and killer heels to give a completely look.

 So, are you ready for Autumn?

    Oooh I’m searching for a new winter coat so look forward to your next posts. Love the shape of this one but I’m thinking that the colour probably wouldn’t sit well in my current wardrobe. But I could be tempted to change my wardrobe for this……..Donna x
