This weather is horrible. Absolutely awful. Last night I took Lopez for a walk and we were both blown across the street! I have never seen anything like it... However, it does maintain the need for winter clothes shopping - spring doesn't feel like it is coming anytime soon. I promised myself I wouldn't buy a new coat this season, but having seen an influx of cream and white pieces around I don't know if I can hold myself back...
Elin Kling's white coat collection - a teddy fur + a classic style
I can't make my mind up on the style, and have been pinning all my favourite to my Pinterest account - but so far I'm think I want a big, comfy one (a bit like the blue Reiss one I've lived in, which unfortunately has just about had it's time now) rather than a fitted one, not sure about you but this weather does not encourage me to wear any tailored pieces... the bigger the better (especially when I've been eating out far too much).
Burberry at Vestiaire Collective, £274 / Stella McCartney Mohair Coat, £1020 / Reiss Lyndon Coat, now £125 / Marks and Spencer Autograph, £110 / Zara White Boucle Coat, £99
I picked out these ones above as contenders... The Burberry one is a bit of a bargain considering it is made of cashmere, and the Zara is stunning. I love the crispness of the look - spotted quite a lot of them on the streets around Somerset House this weekend. You can also pick up a lot of bargains coat-wise at this time of year as retailers like my-wardrobe, The OutNet and Matches all still have their sales on. So.. no excuse not to, right?
