Another Investment Wardrobe piece! I spied with my beady little eye this beautiful Camel Coat in the Warehouse Sale and I grabbed it before anyone else could, it was the only one left and it was a size 10, it must be fate, non? I think a good coat, a good bag and a sturdy pair of flats are investment wardrobe essentials but i think coats in general are an investment if you're living in England (it's cold and rainy 98% of the time) but i think a Camel coat tops all others.
Expect to see said coat in more or less every other Winter outfit post of mine. I've found that Camel actually goes with most colours, even blue as you've seen from my last outfit post here and it's just such a nice change from wearing black all the time. What really caught my eye about this coat is that it's boyfriend fit, but has a belt that you can use if you want the coat to have a more feminine shape, two birds with one stone and all that jazz.

I've been scouring Pinterest for ways to style my coat for both everyday use and special occasions and it did not disappoint! I think Pinterest is probably one of my greatest finds of 2013, it's a treasure trove chock-a-block full of inspirational images, awesome diy's and some kick ass recipes! I hope this series is helpful to anyone else trying to build an investment wardrobe, i've got a "Staples" Pinterest board which helps to inspire my investment purchases, check it out here if you want. Oh, I have a giveaway running at the moment here if you'd like to get your hands on some skincare goodies!
