ASOS black fedora hat

so as it's slowly shifting into autumn now it only felt right to bring my trusty fedora back into the picture. it only seemed right as i didn't know what to do with myself without any sunglasses on! french connection have always been a wonderful brand that i have enjoyed wearing and admired for years. i feel like they have always get classic british pieces, such as the mighty trench coat absolutely spot on. in my opinion the quality of the coat is totally faultless. i know i rarely talk about pieces like this but i do feel like it needs to be said, especially as with a coat of that price you don't just want it to look good. it's heavy enough to keep you warm and stay structured but not weigh you down. as far as an autumnal piece i feel like every girl needs a trench-coat! i must admit though it was pretty daunting shooting slap-bang in the centre of newcastle all in the name of putting the french connection sign in the backdrop. geordies love a good ol' stare. anyway i hope you like it, and are enjoying your weekend :)

p.s who spotted the cyclist totally taking centre stage in the photos? haha.

    1. Just make it a waterfall trench instead if it looks too long or you could always have it taken up :) x
