Now that the weather has returned towards the chillier end of the spectrum, I've been making a beeline for some old favourites. Streamlining my collection of clothes to create a capsule wardrobe has never really been my forte, but year after year there are a bounty of staples which I come back to, particularly during the winter when the unpredictable weather seems determined to scupper any attempt at forward planning! Last weekend, Sarah and I made a detour to Somerset House for the Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! exhibition (well worth a visit!), ahead of catching up with the Dream Team for Sophie's birthday celebrations at Honest Burger. With a definite chill in the air, I dug out some old wardrobe treasures: 

Coat- c/o Very 
Dress (worn as top)- tba 
Jeans- Whistles 
Shoes- Gap 
Bag- Vintage (via Rokit) 

This coat is a fair few years old now, and has made a few appearances in outfit posts here and there as it's probably one of my most worn pieces. As far as wardrobe classics go, I don't really think you can go far wrong with a camel coat, and the sheer versatility of this design makes it perfect for dressing up or for featuring in a more casual look, as I did here. I also re-discovered this dress from tba a little while ago too; again, it's a piece which is a real favourite and which I can't see myself ever getting tired of. Teamed with some much worn black basics, this cosy and comfortable look seemed like the perfect way to welcome in the weekend.
