Together fashion adding to the capsule wardrobe

Yay! I actually managed to get out and take some photos this week. Anyone else fed up with this wet weather? I’m sharing a brand with you today that I used to wear a lot years ago. I found Together fashion on my Instagram feed and I was so happy to find it.

Mum and I used to sit together browsing through her catalogue ( I can’t remember which one) and order ourselves a couple of pieces. Finding the brand brought back some lovely memories.

I remember buying some white cotton drawstring trousers for maternity use and passed them to mum after. She kept them for years and said they were the best white trousers in her wardrobe. She used to giggle about it every year. “Look I’m wearing your maternity trousers!”

As soon as I spotted this Trench coat I knew it had to be mine. It’s one item that I don’t have in my capsule wardrobe and I thought how well it would work with all the neutral tones that I’ve collected.

The trench coat is full of detail. I really like the Double layered placket? (I think that’s what its called! please correct me if you know differently) it adds a lovely movement to the coat. I also like the tortoise Hardwear on the cuffs and buttons.

My capsule wardrobe is nearly complete

Coats will be my investment item this year for my capsule wardrobe. This is a great springtime coat. It’s lined but lightweight and I love how fluid the material is. For next winter I really fancy a cream wool coat. Am I mad?

The detailing on the back of the coat is just as interesting as the front. The double placket? The cross holding the belt in place and the long pleat. I did find that the coat creased quite easily but that’s the nature of the material consisting of 100% viscose. I prefer fluid over stiff cotton any day.

Neutral tones all blend seamlessly together

I’ve added my neutral accessories with the coat but let’s face it this stone colour will work with anything. I could be wearing my pyjamas underneath and no one would know!

But I’m wearing skinny jeans and my new favourite jumper featured a couple of weeks ago. But that’s what I’ve been thinking about. A winter coat is basically your wardrobe, isn’t it? That’s why I want to invest later this year.

Heading indoors now for a cuppa before I get a soaking! Do take a look at the Together collection. You can find it via Kaleidoscope, an online catalogue of many brands. I could spend a pretty penny! There is lots of gorgeousness over there.

    It has rained here so much, we had broken a record! Our nature trail has turned into a pond several times. Quite the dreary and cold weather too. If we had more of a Spring, I would be interested in a trench, but we head into hotter days rather quickly once Spring arrives. I love this jacket on you! So classic, classy and just perfect with your wardrobe!
    Here’s to the sun getting here soon!

    We’ve been having wet weather here too!! I’m hoping this weekend will clear up. Loving this jacket. I have a similar one that unfortunately the Hawaii mildew got to. Ugh. It’s not always paradise here.

    I love this trench. It is so versatile. The stone color is just what every wardrobe needs. And it looks great on you. TFS

    This is such a classy look. But you always look so classy. The trench is fabulous and perfect. Glad you had some sunshine. Here’s hoping you have more!

    It is a beautiful trench coat, Laurie. I am sure you will get lots of wear out of it. I love the stone color as well and it pairs beautifully with your taupe boots. I have a taupe trench coat from Talbots that I found second hand a few years ago and it is such a great staple to have in the closet. I hope the weather gets nicer for all of us soon! Thanks for linking up with me.

    It certainly is a ‘you’ trench coat, Laurie! Perfect colour on you, and I love the detailing on the back. Those boots are GORGEOUS, by the way!

      Thanks Suzi. The boots were a sale purchase last summer. It was weird buying knee-high boots when it was hot and I had to wait sometime to wear them but it was worth it! xx

    I love this trench coat, Laurie, and it would be perfect for our mild winters. The fall and fold of the fabric is so feminine and chic! I’m glad you’re able to get out and about and appreciate you sharing this fresh look!!

    This coat is marvelous, especially with your gorgeous boots. I agree about how in winter, your coat IS your wardrobe because you may not see much else! I’m now keeping my coats in the closet next to my “real clothes”, and incorporating the coat, hat, gloves, scarf, etc. into the whole outfit instead of something I grab as I run out the door. Longer tunics and cardigans also really complicate the choice of outerwear, don’t they?

      Hi Mary! I have at some point been to the supermarket wearing my pyjamas under my coat! No one knew anything about it! Thanks so much for stopping by xx
