M&Co - The Perfect Lightweight Coat For Classic UK Weather!



Hi Everyone

I was hoping to share this coat Summer style, but as per usual, our UK weather is not summery at all!
White trousers are what I had in mind! But with all the rain, you know how tough it is to wear white without getting those dirty splashes up the back!





So I'm back in y dark navy again. But hopefully soon, White will be back on the menu! 
I'm styling this gorgeous coat from MandCo today. And actually, the weather has timed itself well. This is the perfect coat to wear on the way to work in the mornings on those summer days to come or in the evening when the chill sets in.



I'm at Twickenham Lock Bridge today giving my new coat a showing off. I love the dainty pattern of Navy and white and the edging of fluffiness. This coat was on the rails at the MandCo SS17 Press event here and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.


We were asked to put labels over the coathangers of items that we really loved, and this was my first chosen item. I couldn't resist nosing at who else had put labels on the coathangers and noticed that the fashion editor of Hello Magazine had also put a label on this gorgeous coat.
If it's good enough for the editor it's good enough for me!! The editor has great taste of course!!



The coat is very light-weight and provides just enough warmth for a sem-chilly day. It's been raining and windy here in London all day. I wondered if I was going to get any photos done at all.



I've teamed my coat with Navy trousers and a White T-shirt. Navy sandals and a White bag. The coat has a very elegant feel to it, and I think it would look fabulous with a White plain shift dress. You can find the coat here and it's at a bargain price.




Here's a close up of the material. Cute little flowers!



I think this little coat will go with so much for the lighter wear season. Jeans, white trousers or skirt. Glam it up or go casual. What are your thoughts?

XO Laurie

  13. It's a great jacket, Laurie, and looks lovely on you. I do like the neckline - it makes a change not to have a collar. I'd also like to see it dressed with jeans - that would be fun too!

  16. Laurie, this coat is fabulous! I love the tiny flower print and the length is perfect! We are having quite strange weather around here as well. Super hot one day and then freezing cold the next. We just had snow only last week!

  19. This is similar to the Zara lightweight coat that everyone has been wearing. It is perfect for that transitional period in the weather - I could certainly do with one in my wardrobe. Thanks for sharing Laurie. #TweensTeensBeyond

  33. Good pick on that coat! While it does have a bold pattern, it is black and white so there is still a classic element to it.
