Trench x Trench

Dahlia contrast cuff trench coat (c/o) | H&M shirt and black tee | Cheap Monday jeans (with some home-made ripped knees thrown in) | Office black leather chelsea boots (sold out, similar and similar) | Daniel Wellington leather watch | RayBan 2140 Wayfarer (c/o Sunglasses Shop)

The Topshop trench I mentioned in this wishlist post sold out online before I could buy it, so I've checked the 'find in store' section of the website pretty much every day since, desperately hoping that one would magically appear in my size in a store near me. And, against all odds, this actually happened last night. So, I wore this in today to go and collect my baby (if it's wrong to call it that I don't want to be right). Yes, I wore a new trench to pick up another new trench, it's perfectly logical if you think about it. I've always been a bit infatuated with matching collars and cuffs (not a euhemism, simmer down) but they seem to be quite rare to come by, so for that reason alone this trench is an absolute winner in my eyes. Plus it's nice and light for when the weather starts to get warmer which - to give it it's due - was actually quite mild and sunny today. I whapped out my good old RayBans from Sunglasses Shop and took them for a whirl as well.. Amy 1, Sun 0.

Gorgeous trench ;) And as for wearing one to pick up another one - totally fine, it's such a classic item that there's no such thing as too many trenches ;)

Laura Anne Carr said...

love this whole look, especially how you wore a trench to go pick up another trench, why not? Simplicity is best in my eyes and you work the look amazingly :) x

I saw your 'baby' in your video earlier on today, so glad that you managed to get your hands on it :)

Hoping to god I suit ray bans when I try them on next time I'm in Selfridges, I might actually feel trendy for once in my life if I have a pair.
