I bought this green parka last year from J.Crew. Unfortunately, they do not seem to be offering a similar style this season. See how I wore it last year. I found a good selection of parkas at both Nordstrom and John Lewis. I am wearing several layers as it was a sunny but chilly early morning near Richmond Park.
The navy boiled wool sleeveless jacket that you can just see under my parka is by Hopefashion. How I styled it last year. My grey roll neck is from Uniqlo (Uk). My new over the knee boots are from MarksandSpencer (US link) I will be discussing them at greater length later.
My red hat is a few years old from Whistles. Similar at Etsy
My chunky red necklace is from Jaeger a few years ago. Similar at Etsy
A detail shot of my new MarksandSpencer (US link) over the knee boots. I have not worn over the knee boots for many years. Two reasons. The first I thought that I was “too old” and that they were a style more suited to the young. Secondly, I have small feet and wide calves. Never an easy combination when you are buying knee boots. Then I thought I should practice what I preach and be bolder. A friend alerted me to the ones above so I thought I would try them. I was agreeably surprised. They are comfortable, fit well which is a miracle for me.
