Just a few words today - sometimes clothes do the talking for you and I think this is definitely the case with this Hobbs trench coat. I stopped by the Hobbs autumn/winter press day in April and I'm rather excited by what the brand has in store for next season. The cocktail dresses and events-dressing pieces were particularly lovely as were these jewel green velvety flat shoes.

This amazing piece is The Madison Trench. Somewhere between a trench coat and duster jacket, the soft tencel fabric is very light and fluid, making it spot-on for summer. Of course the main event of this style is the intricately smocked back, which is crazy beautiful. I think it has a real Burberry feel, with a much lower price tag. I've styled it here with jeans (forever dressing with comfort in mind) but it’s also a good event dressing piece – you could throw it on over your dress at the races or a wedding and still feel dressed-up (there's nothing worse that hiding a fab outfit with an old coat, right?). Just one word of warning, this coat is long, so if you're petite it might swamp you (I'm a big-ish bird - 5'10). It's also in sale right now, so if you needed an excuse...

And just a few words on white denim -  a trend I'm really into right now. I'm not going to lie, white denim is high maintenance and after a day in the capital, my white jeans are absolutely filthy (I got chocolate allover them last week). But they are very very easy to style, and look good with just about everything! So, swings and roundabouts. I bought this pair from ASOS from a brand that's a new discovery for me - Dr Denim. What I like about these jeans is the thick, structured denim, they have a 90s look and feel. This brand gets a big tick from me!
