Too many coats?

Some women talk about how you can never have too many shoes…or handbags. But for me, it’s coats. Give me £100 to spend on one item and I’ll buy a coat any day over a pair of shoes. So I’m drooling over this Marie Claire selection of the 50 Best Spring Coats and Jackets, which I picked up on a tweet. Yes, I’m now on Twitter! Follow me please :) @schoolgatestyle
But I must resist as I have some lovely Spring coats already…including this beauty from Karen Millen, bought for me by my fabulous sister-in-law last year. It’s about as perfect as a trench coat can get.

Black Trousers – Warehouse
Black Boots – Carl Scarpa
Proof that you just can’t beat a good coat for covering up. Doesn’t really matter what you wear underneath – if you’ve a fab coat, you’re sorted! Perfect School Gate Style :)

Trench coats are all over the high street at the moment. Here are some of my favourites…

Next – £80

H&M £29.99
H&M £14.99

F&F at Tesco – £28

Colourful from M&S – £39.50

Finally, in honour of a friend’s blog about mugs today, I have hidden my pasty mug above and instead share my most geeky mug for Kate Take’s 5. It’s a hint to a banking past that I prefer not to talk about :)

Now, if that’s not a sign that it’s time for tea…


  1. Too many coats?? Definitely, positively, absolutely not!! A girl needs a coat for every occasion! Or maybe I’m just trying to convince myself as I’ve been shopping…..

  2. Your Karen Millen trench is gorgeous! I like the red M&S one…a lovely pop of colour for Spring:)

  3. Love the vertical styling on your trench – a great styling trick (not that you need it!)
