And so it starts..from fancy free summer to rigour and routine with no transition, like an open door has been slammed. ┬áMaybe that’s why this coat is so appealing – it shouts attitude, purpose and no nonsense.

Or maybe it’s that I love coats and autumn is the time when the craving is at it’s strongest?
