CHECK MATE







Hey guys Happy New Year & welcome back to my blog! 2020 has started with a bang and this is my first post of the new year as well as the decade! You might have followed my blog for a while now or this might be the very first time you've checked it out! 2020 is my third year of having my blog and I'm super excited to see what comes my way and everything I'm going to discover this year!
Hopefully they'll be more killer posts plus a lot more tips on what you all wanna find out! I'll kick things off by showing you all, one of my Christmas presents, this very sexy grey and black check coat.






I've been wanting a dark check coat for a very long time, since spotting one in All Saints years ago, the biggest mistake then was, I didn't get it at the time! Classic case of buyers regret! Ever since then I've been longing for a coat like it. A long flowing length of material with a simple check pattern with a fitted & tailored style.

I was in T.K.Maxx of all place's when the sleeve of this coat jumped out at me, grabbing my attention from the overflowing rail of jackets and coats. I'd only gone into T.K.Maxx to kill time as that day I'd walked into town and forgotten my wallet, classic! I gave it a try on in the fitting room then decided a walk back to the flat for my wallet was now called for, I wasn't going to let a coat like this slip through my fingers for the second time.









I collected the jacket and finally paid, it was the coat I'd been looking for since my All Saints days. My parents kindly offered to  buy me the coat for one of my Christmas presents - Legends! Sadly this meant one thing, it got put away till the big day.

It's pretty much not been off my back since Boxing Day so I thought why not feature it across on my blog. I also got this amazing grey cashmere scarf from Marks & Sparks which even though I'm not over 70, adds a cool little detail to the outfit and makes the coat look even better with a complementing block grey colour.





This coat is a piece I've been desperately needing, something to make me feel smart when wearing, and a coat I can throw on and rock with any outfit. I think it looks the part and makes for a very timeless look. I was super lucky with the photographs, heading to this wall at the perfect time during the day, catching the long shadows just before the sun disappeared entirely. The coat only cost £59 but styled up with accessories and a crisp white shirt I think it looks a lot more expensive than it actually was.







I've actually found this coat across on Asos too, it's a little bit more than I paid, but still a steal for the price. Here's the link to check the coat out on Asos, sadly they only have it in large, but I imagine if it's on there, it might be also found elsewhere with a little more digging online.

Thanks for reading,
