OUTFIT: WINTER COAT

It's been ages since I last posted an outfit post, so I thought I'd show you what I'm currently wearing (literally - I dragged one of my team outside to take these photos for me about ten minutes ago. I am such a cool boss).

Coat - Peacocks
Jeans - Topshop
Boots - Oasis (from ASOS)



I have spent most of the summer in a state of surprise as it was actually warm enough to go without tights or a jacket for WEEKS and WEEKS on end (a bit of a rarity in Scotland!). This made the transition to Autumn even harder - I find it impossible to dress for sort-of-warm but mainly-kinda-chilly days!

But, thankfully, the weird inbetweeny weather didn't last long, and the cold edge of winter has started to creep in. Which means goodbye to my lone autumn blazer (which I wore so much it now is falling apart at the seams), and hello to proper winter coats!

I bought this coat on a total whim from Peacocks years ago, wore it twice, then threw it in the back of a cupboard and completely forgot about it - not even noticing it when I packed up my clothes and moved house earlier this year (mainly because my strategy for packing clothes was to bundle everything into massive sacks, and hope for the best). Then this month I discovered it hidden in the back of a wardrobe, and fell firmly in coat love!


It's slightly too big for me, probably needs a dry clean as it's been abandoned for so long, and is in need of new buttons, but I love it! I feel like I'm about to adventure off to Narnia, or that I'd fit right in on Game of Thrones - the (fake!) fur collar is super Catelyn Stark!
