Muttonblog has had a bit of a break but I’m back in time for Christmas and looking forward to 2017. It’s got to be better than 2016, right? Anyway, the tagline now needs to be updated so maybe I should change it from:

 Almost 50  to Embracing 50

Nest Almost Empty to Nest Was Empty But Is Now Full Again

Never Giving Up – I reckon that can stay the same.

And what better way to restart the blog than with this coat from good old Marks & Spencer. It brilliantly combines three current trends: velvet, burgundy and nightwear as daywear. Some of the reviews on the M&S website aren’t great because of the whole looking like you’re wearing a dressing gown outside thing but if you want to be stylish and stand out from the crowd I think this look really works.

What I’m wearing: Coat: M&S | Cashmere Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Zara | Boots: Sam Edelman | Sunglasses: Miu Miu | Bag: O Bag | Dog Coat and Lead: model’s own
