Bonjour and hello! Welcome to the first of a three part collaboration with Reiss, where yours truly will be styling up three different pieces of - I'll bet you a tenner you know what I'm about to say - outerwear. Yes, I am officially coat obsessed and shall be checking myself into rehab forthwith. In all seriousness, Reiss is a brand I've loved and worn for years, their coats and jackets in particular bringing out the heart eye emojis and excited giggles in me.In fact, you may or may not remember this post from last year featuring my little leopard baby, which I still wear non-stop. I'm not going to bore you all by telling you again how much, being petite, I love a good bit of tailoring but- oh no wait, I just did. So, yes, today's post is focusing on the thing of beauty that is the tailored coat. As soon as I saw it I thought, 'YES. You, my friend, have my name written all over you'. Not literally, of course, but if I'd had my Sharpie on me things might have been different. Well fitted, checked print, muted palette.. everything I look for in a life partner, sorry - coat, is in there. It's so wearable too which is great for me, being the generally lazy dresser that I am; just chuck on a pair of black skinnies and white tee and you're good to go. I'd also like to touch on the trousers I'm wearing too BECAUSE, I am entirely unblessed in the thigh region so find it very, very hard to find trousers that hug my thighs but don't draw attention to the fact that I like a good cake, and these are just the ticket*. They're slightly high-waisted, which I enjoy (perfect for tucking blouses like this Victorian one in) and, although they're slightly long - #petiteproblems alert - I just tuck them under at the bottom and all is well.

So, there we go, that's Part 1 for you! I hope you liked it and I'll be back on Thursday with Part 2 and you can start to form an option on which of the three is your favourite (note: it's perfectly ok if you want to say, 'I LIKE ALL THREE, AMY. I, TOO, AM ADDICTED TO COATS)
