Everyone let's give a warm welcome to this amazing Weekday coat that really is keeping me very, very warm indeed. I bought it last week after seeing in store, having a moment with a few mirror selfies and then deciding I couldn't leave without it. And I am glad I did because I am writing this post from a rather chilly New York where this cosy number has come in very, very handy indeed. It's one of those pieces that is so effortlessly cool I can just throw it on with anything and it completes an outfit perfectly, and is ticking the boxes for practicality too. While I, along with many others I am sure, have spent years swooning over the Acne Velocity jacket, there is something about that classic aviator shape and style that I am tired of. This much boxier shape seems wayyyy more effortless and interesting. I am of course loving it with my straight leg denim, but it looks equally great with skinner jeans and some boots. 

Also a mention needs to be given to my new bag, which I don't feel like I have officially introduced you all too. After months of swooning over the Puzzle in tan, I ended up changing my mind and setting my sights on the Hammock instead. I have always picked up this bag in store and loved it's shape, but always been a little put off by the fact it doesn't properly fasten up (just a clasp on the inside), so it doesn't feel that secure. In the end I decided it was something I could overlook, especially as I have a bad habit of not properly zipping up my Puzzle when I am out and about anyways. I have used it daily since it arrived, and it fits a huge amount in and I love how it's been looking with all my outfits. I find it as easy to wear cross body, on one shoulder, or held top handle which is something I always love with the bag. I am going to keep using it a little longer before sharing a full review with you all, comparing it to my Puzzle and Barcelona too - but so far it's all good things I have to say about this!
