Hello November

1 Nov

Some people love basking in the sun’s hot rays all summer long, praying that the cold weather doesn’t come around again too soon and spending all winter wishing to be back in their sandals with bright cheery toenail polish on.
I’m not one of these people, I like summer with its balmy nights and relaxed vibe but at heart I am most definitely a winter girl. As well as chunky knits, boots and cosy scarves comes my favourite wardrobe addition, which is simply unnecessary in summer and it is The Winter Coat.
I have so many coats I lose count and I just bought another! I was browsing through Instagram as I so often do and saw a beautiful, soft, winter white wonder. I fell in love. I commented, found out where the gorgeous girl in the pic got it and off I went to H&M.

I couldn’t believe this outfit transforming coat was £34.99, the fabric is really soft felt and it’s so wonderfully warm and cosy. So perfect for dry, crisp November days.
I could hardly wait to wear it and put it on today for breakfast in town.

Worn with ‘Black Coffee Please’ Pull and Bear sweater, plaid Primark skater dress and simple black tights & shoes.

I used my Benefit They’re Real! Push Up Liner to create a little definition under my eye and wore my hair down with a natural wave.

I can’t wait for the weather to get even colder so I can wear a big scarf with this coat and feel all warm. I might even make a sewing pattern from it and make myself one in different colours!


The Season of the Coat

3 Sep

I like summer when it’s really warm and walking around with bare arms and legs leaves everybody feeling just that little bit more relaxed, you know you’re only on your lunch hour but a patch of grass and a lolly-ice seems completely rational.

As much as I love summer, here in Great Britain the summer isn’t really that great and most days the patch of grass is wet and a bowl of soup seems like a better idea than frozen treats. I think that is why I have an undying affection for the first chill of autumn and the wonderfully bitter few months when I get to wear my favorite wardrobe item…the coat.

A good coat has the ability to make an outfit, it is not a tool only for warmth but just another way to conquer whatever look it is you want to achieve. There are expensive investment coats that are so classic and stylish they will last your whole life then there are fast-fashion high-street coats that are inexpensive and always bang on trend so this coming autumn/winter there really is no need to be left out in the cold.

Here is my lust have list.

Lisa Wool + Cashmere-Blend Felt Coat (Joseph) £545

Valence Coat Navy (Hobbs) £329

Mohair Boyfriend Coat (Topshop) £89

Velvet Fur Coat (Pins & Needles for Urban Outfitters) £125

Coat with Appliques on the Sleeve (Zara) £129

Fantasy Fabric Coat (Zara) £99.99

Wrap up in something gorgeous this winter!
