When the weather gets really cold and wintry I find that a bright coloured coat, especially a flattering red, can lift the spirits. I have had the above coat by Nicole Farhi for many years and never seem to grow tired of it.
Our skin can become pale at this time of year and a rich colour can throw a more flattering light onto the face than a dark neutral.
What colours are you attracted to that bring you joy every time you wear them?
Red coat Nicole Farhi similar // Ethnic shawl from St. Tropez market. Etsy have some great ones // grey knitted tunic.
How to change the look with a different necklace.

Here I have added a different necklace that helps to bring out the colour of the coat. Necklace a few years ago from MarksandSpencer. A good selection at Nordstrom.
Just back from Paris. Had a wonderful time. I will get the photos posted as soon as possible. In the meantime I have a couple up on my Instagram
SHOP THE LOOK
I’m a huge fan of color in these dreary months and since you have to wear a coat everyday, it might as well be a fun one!!
Love the shawl over top too!!
Yes, it’s a lovely combination, the shaw adds interest and as you bought it in France, rather unique. I particularly like buying items when abroad too, that you won’t see on our high street.
I love your capsule. I’m intrigued by the jumper with detachable cowl. Does it just sit independently or attach in some way? I sew and would love to incorporate this design into a tunic. I found your blog via Une Femme…enjoy your time in Paris!
Welcome to my blog.
With regard to the jumper. The cowl neck is not attached. I just put it over my head and it sits on top of the crew neck making a turtle neck style. You could also use it as a headband to keep your ears warm.
