What I wore in the Bath

Hi Guys,
If you follow me on twitter you'll know yesterday I visited Bath with Mr Berto for the Christmas market and I must say it was amazing :)

I anticipated that it was going to be really chilly so when deciding what to wear I knew my new coat would do the trick.


I brought my vintage 1970's Afghan coat on eBay, I had actually been looking for a coat like this for over 10 years. Yes 10 years! I first saw a similar coat on Willow in Buffy, from then I knew I wanted one . I just couldn't seem to find one that 1. was in good condition and 2. fitted my bust, I am blessed in the boobie department I'm told..... although I think it's more of a curse sometimes. 

The detail in the embroidery is still in amazing condition, which runs all round the edge, the sheep shirring (I think that is what its called) is amazingly warm & soft for a 35 year old coat.



I wore my cream lace dress, with my Cath Kidston belt & my favourite mustard cardi, It was too chilly to take my coat off so I did a quick flash for the camera.


Here is a better shoot that Mr Berto took of me when we stopped for a Starbucks.



I also wore my Hunter with my welly boots socks and green tights, boy was I snugly. I was quite impressed with myself that I picked my outfit so well! I wasn’t cold once!!

Well that’s me for now; I will be sharing more Bath pictures shortly.
I hope you all had a great weekend.

Ciao for now.
Love Katrina xx
