That Winter Coat.

23 October 2015

We all have one. That one trusty coat that we have to take us through the cold and brittle weather that is the Winter season.

My last winter coat from Topshop has lasted me a solid 3 years but I've worn it so much that it just looks battered and worn out now, not a good look! So I went on the hunt to find myself the perfect new winter coat and I'm so pleased with what I found!

Since my last coat from Topshop served me so well, I decided it was probably a good idea to start there in my search. Little did I know that my search would only go as far as that!

As soon as I walked in my eyes fell on this beauty and as soon as I tried it on I knew I just had to have it!

It's double-lined meaning that it will keep me super warm when I'm waiting in cold train stations going to and from Uni. It's also got the cosiest hood! Seriously, I could probably use it as a pillow, I love it!

You can detach the fur if you want but I think I'll be keeping it on most the time, even if it does fall over my face sometimes!

I also love that it's got the fur lining at the sides but not all the way round. Don't get me wrong I don't like being cold but I think if the fur was all over the inside I would just get too warm.

This coat ticks all the boxes for me. It's khaki so it will go with pretty much everything, I adore the fur detail, it's got huge pockets (that will probably soon be filled with random junk, oopsie!) and the main thing is that it's honestly just soo comfy! When I first got it I just sat in my room with it on for hours because I found it so cosy.

I'm also so pleased to be getting some high quality photo's up on this blog, it's about time right? All credit goes to my friend Ross who took them all and who also showed me this cute little park in Newcastle. It's such a hidden gem and a lovely place to walk about, like a smaller version of central park!

Sorry if I look a bit moody in these pictures, I'm still getting used to the whole 'blogger's pose' thing! There are a few of me laughing but only because the wind was blowing my hair everywhere! Haha. Girls with long hair will understand my pain when the weather's slightly windy!

However, even if I am a bit awkward in front of the camera, I'm still so glad that I've gotten round to doing an 'OOTD' style post. I've been meaning to do more posts like this but student life has hit hard so no new clothes for me for a while! *thumbs down emoji*

But at least that's my winter coat sorted! It was £98 which I think is quite a lot to splash out on but if you get the use out of it then it's definitely worth it! Here's the link if you're interested:

What about you? What's your trusty winter coat like?
