This is one of my favourite coats: a Karen Millen cobalt blue military 3/4 length, with twenty shiny black silver-surround buttons paired down the front.
I always get really positive comments on it, which is great, especially since it’s lost colour every time I’ve had it dry cleaned, so I don’t feel it’s quite as smart and crisp as it once was.
It’s still a stunning military-style coat though, despite the fact it’s had a helluva lot of *general* use (see what I did there?), kiddie muck on its cuffs and baby snot on its shoulders!
I’m wearing it with my chunky brown G-Star Raw biker-jackboots (more on these later)…
