One piece from my closet that has been on repeat this Winter is, to no surprise, a coat…duh. But oh what a coat it is! The Margaret Windowpane Coat from Paper Crown is cozy, stylish and (most importantly) versatile.

Those who know me should not be surprised at the palette selection of the outfit above because, in typical Brittany style, it includes all of my favourite colours…or rather shades. I adore soft greys, creams, and most of all blush…a far cry from my hot pink and red outfit combos as a child.

When it comes to dressing I love to keep things simple and feminine. As a general rule of thumb, if it’s not comfortable I usually won’t wear it. Because I dress like this, I love to add pops of interesting texture or colour into my outfits as well, you know, so I’m not being completely boring. The Finlay & Co Pembroke Sunglasses in light blue are a recent obsession of mine. Actually, scratch that, all Finlay & Co sunglasses are flipping amazing. You can see me wearing this pair with their gold mirror clip-on lens in this post and the same pair in tortoise here. See, I told you I was obsessed.

To jazz things up further I’ve borrowed Justine’s (the photographers) Louboutin’s, I die. Funny story, that photo of the red soles is my most liked photo on Instagram at nearly 3,000 likes. It even dragged in an extra 250+ followers which just goes to show that I need a pair of Louboutin’s in my life. Should I start a fund?

Lastly, I’ve accessorized with a pair of vintage Weiss earrings from Sweet and Spark which have quickly become one of my most treasured items in my jewellery box.

As for everyday style, this windowpane coat also looks great with a plaid top, skinny jeans, and ankle boots. Or, take a cue from Jess of Prosecco & Plaid and pair with the matching skirt and over-the-knee boots!

What’s your most worn item been this Winter?
