Shades of Black

Reiss1 Reiss2 Reiss3 Reiss4 Reiss5 Reiss6Reiss7If I’m ever in doubt about what to wear, whatever the occasion, I always reach for black. So it seems stupid not to invest in such a fail safe colour especially this time of your. It was cold, I love black so I guess that completely justified this stunning new addition from Reiss, right? Oh I do love how without fail we are able to justify whatever we purchase perfectly, no matter what!

But in all seriousness, a good coat is essential here in the UK and this year I opted for something a little more timeless, smart  and sophisticated. With a beautiful clean, tailored silhouette and a subtle yet statement print it was love at first click.

The fact that this coat was so sophisticated made wearing fairly small heels a perfectly comfortable experience. It isn’t often that I post outfits without some form of three inch (or more) heel, they are almost like a comfort blanket to me, however times do change and maybe it’s down to the sheer beauty of these Senso boots but I don’t think this will be the last time either!

    Gorgeous Shots Lydia! I love the pattern on the coat that adds some texture to an all black outfit – which is my fail safe colour too <3 xxx
