STYLE // One Outfit: From School to Work to a Night on the Town

Do you remember my obsession with jumpsuits back in the summer? Well it looks like it has continued right on into autumn and winter too.

All hail the Baukjen Pippa!

I'm so in love with my latest acquisition I can't tell you. It has everything you could possibly wish for in a winter jumpsuit. Super soft jersey fabric? Check. Turtleneck to keep you toasty? Check. Flattering elasticated waistband? Check. Hareem style pants (comfy) with cuff detail at the ankle (cosy)? Check. Check. But despite sounding, and feeling, like loungewear this is a pretty darn dressy piece.

I gave it it's first outing on a day when I had three different roles to perform: school mum, high flying (ha!) businesswoman and party animal - and it worked for all three, proving that it really is perfect for any occasion.

Curved clutch bag, £109 all c/o Baukjen
Red suedette court shoes, £17.99 - New Look

These court shoes from New Look are so ridiculously comfortable that I can wear them all day but you could always swap them for flats when you're going to be on your feet all day if you'd prefer. I've since worn this jumpsuit with gold studded black loafers and suede fringed ankle boots and loved the slightly more casual look of both.

Of course a winter coat is essential now that the temperature has dropped. I've been searching for the perfect camel coat for the past three years (no exaggeration) and had almost given up hope when Baukjen released the Farrah. If you'd asked me to design my dream coat, this would be it; it's boxy - very eighties, as is the jumpsuit actually - but not big on the shoulders which I really like. It's roomy too, so you can layer up underneath it on an extra chilly day. A coat is something that I really don't mind splashing out on, especially when it's a classic like this one.

But I think the piece de resistance in this outfit is this soft Italian leather half moon clutch, which is embossed with the Baukjen logo in a striking gold. It's the biggest clutch I own and definitely my current favourite! (It's also available in a beautiful cloud pink, which is 60% off). I go through phases of carrying huge handbags like my Mulberry Bayswater and then get fed up losing things in them so switch to something heaps smaller like my Kate Spade. This clutch is somewhere in the middle - roomy but with a big opening which makes it easy to find things in there! I carried it into London under my arm along with my Mulberry tech pouch - then ditched the laptop and just took the clutch out in the evening.

The only thing that's left to add to this outfit is a leopard print belt. Has anyone seen a relatively chunky one with a gold buckle on their travels?
