My wardrobe consists mainly of black and white. If it's got a print, its most likely animal or a check. So when I stumbled across 
this monochrome statement coat you can imagine I was pretty excited! Now, I don't shop at M&S often but the sale always has some hidden gems! The coat (by Autograph) should have been £139 and I got it for a mere £66, not bad for 'Italian fabric'!

Then the afterthought "what will I wear it with?". It only seemed right to wear something plain and simple, and one foot in Zara and I spotted possibly the brightest bag I have ever seen. I had to buy it, adding a pop of colour to my two-tone outfit. I've had lots of compliments on the bag, probably because its so bright you literally cannot miss it! (Bonus for crossing roads.)

To finish the outfit off I added my favourite H&M hat (which I spotted today in Grey!!) and my classic monk shoes. My monks are by Dune which I happened to stumble across in TK Maxx! I searched high and low for my size across a few different stores but had no luck. With TK Maxx I never really think to go online but I wanted them so bad I had a little faith and to my delight there they were. Moral of that story, always check online just incase! x
