Last Sunday my family and I went out to our favourite breakfast spot (breakfast is my favourite meal to eat out) and I thought 'What a fabulous opportunity to wear my lilac coat!' Luckily, my step-daughter just LOVES being my photographer.
You will have to forgive me my shoes. Its winter but I don't have any close toed shoes that go with lilac. But you can FINALLY see the real colour of the fabric and the fact that the buttons do match it!!!
I do however have an adorable vintage beret which matches the colour of the coat perfectly! And the extra inches I added to the skirt pieces have made coat extra swishy (if a coat can be swishy).
And I'm really happy with the placement of the pockets! They are in a really comfortable place to put my hands in - not to mention warm!
And here is my lovely family:
Our favourite breakfast place is at a nursery. It is lovely and quiet, which the most relaxing atmosphere. And they have wonderful tea and amazing food.
Since I took these photos the weather has been unseasonably warm (again) and I haven't worn the coat since. I've almost finished the black one so fingers crossed we get a coolish day where I can wear it, even if its only to take photos, cause since I interlined it, that thing is like a doona!
Who else likes going out for breakfast?
