The winter we were missing has suddenly set in, I even had to de-ice my car and skate along the icy drive way. I was a little surprised early on in the month I was actually able to stroll about in my pumps and no socks. Now, it's the opposite. It's so freezing I'm wearing layers, upon layers.
I have had my lovely red duffle coat for a few years now, I do love it (and feel as snuggly like Paddington Bear) but I wanted someting a bit different. I set out the other week to find a new coat, which (I'm not sure if it's only me) I find coat shopping really tricky. Some styles only suit certain situations -not for everday, and then some looks aren't classic enough and date really easily. What a headache! Its one of my least favourite shopping challenges...
This is my beautiful new coat from French Connection
What I'm wearing: Coat by French Connection, Leggings from Topshop, Red floral peterpan blouse from Next, Boots (Denver) from Topshop
This coat has been a grower, I was actually worried because It didn't have a specific shape to it, which could lead to it making me look bigger than I am. However, after plenty of prancing about in it, I decided it was very Parisian. Those who know me, will know that's my dream look. The coat was £79.99 originally but was a bargain of £29.99 from good old TKmaxx.
I love the boots... so much I bought the exact same pair in brown. Word of advice make sure you seperate the pairs from each other or you may do what I did.... walk out the house with one brown one on and one black. What a plonker hey?!
