Get Lindsays Look

Lindsay’s actual look is all designer pieces; these can be found in Harvey Nichols and Mulberry on Multrees Walk, she is wearing a Burberry Brit Trench coat with a Mulberry Bayswater Handbag. Her scarf is from Zaras’ Autumn Winter13 collection. Lindsay’s look is a great stylish way to work classic pieces. I went for a cheaper spring version so we can all recreate her look now.
