A Wardrobe Classic




Do you have timeless pieces in your wardrobe that you feel good wearing year after year?

For me one of those pieces is this camel coat I bought from Laura Ashley at least 6 years ago.  It's a timeless colour and style which looks good dressed up for a night out or with jeans. 

The great thing about a nice coat or jacket is that it hides the fact that you're wearing a faded old top underneath which may or may not have toothpaste on it from brushing your children's teeth*

Most importantly it works with my favourite scarf which is almost 15 years old - but quality lasts!  Gee, I didn't realise how long I'd had it until just now!



What is your favourite timeless piece?

* Yes, I had toothpaste on my top.  Hey, that's Mama real life!

  3. I agree! With everything!! Paying a little more for a timeless piece is so worth it in the long run! A coat is a great way to hide a mama/kid shirt too!

  5. Such a classic look! My black jeans are probably my favourite timeless piece, although I'm sure they'll wear out from overuse one day! :)
