Ok so.. I wanted a new coat for autumn / winter.
Last year I had a pink puffer jacket and even though I loved it, I wanted something fluffy, something sophisticated and something big!
I was on the hunt for a couple of weeks and I was S T R U G G L I N G to find that perfect coat. I didnt know really what kind of coat I wanted at the time, but I knew that I would know when I saw it (wow that was hard to write, do you know what I mean?) I was in that “when I see it, I will know!” sort of mood.
I visited multiple shops. I went to my absolute go to shops – H&M, my dream coat wasn’t there. Newlook, my dream coat wasn’t there. Went to Missguided but NOPE! not there either. Looked on Pull and Bear, Matalan, NOPE!! none of the coats in there looked like the perfect coat that I was after. Don’t get me wrong, there were lovely coats in there and I did try on a couple but I knew I needed to keep searching. So I went to Primark, my other go to shop! and I found it!! I FOUND MY COAT GUYS! – any one would think this is a blog post about finding something actually important LOL.
I instantly fell in love with this coat.
I saw it and I was like YEP, this is the one. After trying it on a couple of times and trying to figure out if I wanted a slightly bigger size or a size just right for me, I went for a slightly bigger size and I got 12-14. I wanted a baggy coat, I wanted to feel comfy in it. The colour is perfect, although I was worried about getting it dirty ( so far, it hasn’t got dirty at all ) one thing I was really nervous about is getting makeup on the collar – because around the neck there is a big collar. I haven’t got makeup on it yet either. The length of the coat is really long and i’m in to it. It is super in fashion and I have had so many compliments about this coat!! This coat has been in my drafts for the longest time, that I have actually forgotten how much it was. It ranged between £18-£24.
The coat doesn’t have a zip, but it does have big brown buttons. The coat wraps around and then you button it up. I thought that because there wasn’t any zips, the cold would would get in, I was wrong. It keeps me so warm. I kind of like not having a zip, it’s something different for me.
There isn’t really alot of detail of the coat and I kind of like that. It is probably one of the softiest things I have ever felt. When someone compliments me on this coat, I say ” it is so soft, feel it ” if you are reading this and are one of the people I made feel the coat – you can back me up here when I say it is so fluffy, right?
Well who knew someone could literally ramble on about a coat?
Have you found your perfect Autumn / Winter coat yet?
