The colour pink has long been one of Anne C's favourite colours and she can often be seen wearing various outfits in different shades of pink, in complete contrast to Anne H's mono palette.  But we think our respective tastes are rubbing off on each other, as Anne H has gone for a beautiful new coat in!

It is from Jigsaw and is their double faced coat  which comes in three colours -  this beautiful soft 'sugar pink',  a very dark grey called 'gravel' and a vivid 'fuscia' pink.  Its relaxed fit and single button fastening make it an easy piece to dress up or wear with jeans and Anne feels it will be a great addition to her Spring wardrobe, she just hopes she doesn't get it dirty too quickly! She particularly loves the giant patch pockets and the really soft 80% wool/20% polyester fabric.   She has accessorised with a lovely dusky pink modal scarf, also from Jigsaw, which is currently available in the sale for £40. Her jeans are from John Lewis and were a sale purchase from the DL1961 range, which makes a change from her normal choice of 7 for All Mankind.  They are the Coco straight leg which normally retail at £180 but was reduced to below £60.  Sadly, no longer available to purchase in the sale but they are still available to purchase in a different wash of denim.  She loves the comfy fit and it is the length to wear with both boots and flats.  Her boots are also from John Lewis and are the Miss KG Spider boot which she also purchased in the sale and are also still available to buy.

Anne C's new coat is a lightweight boiled wool coat and was a gift from a friend, and is from Masai - which is a brand she likes and has several pieces - although you do have to choose carefully as some of their designs are a bit frumpy.  It is a versatile style which is great for slipping when you're popping out in the car and don't want anything too bulky.  There are no buttons or zips so probably no use when the weather is inclement, although the bamboo safety pin would probably hold it together on a windy day! The coat was bought in the sales just before Christmas, and cost £60, but is no longer available.

She has teamed the coat with wine coloured jeggings and some fun heeled boots in the same colour - complete with cute pom-poms - both a bargain from Primark.  Anne has often said how she is an impulse buyer and will buy from just about any shop - enjoying mixing her bargain buys with more classic quality brands.

She has completed her look with a classic grey sweater from Phase Eight and  Barbican handbag from Fiorelli (which is a also previous season though only bought in January from TK Maxx.
