My Favourite Coat I Thought I’d Never Wear


I wear this coat CONSTANTLY! It goes with so many outfits, I love the warm pastel pink colour, the fabric doesn’t attract (or maybe just hides well) the constant layer of dog hair living in my house and it’s light enough to never feel too warm. I don’t love the shape.. when I first tried it on (I ordered online) it reminded me of something Pauline might have worn in the Laundrette and I’ve often thought of donating it during my many wardrobe purges but I just keep reaching for it. I forget how much I paid but I remember it was dirt cheap in the ASOS sale or I would never have taken a chance on a coloured coat but I would definitely consider another one now.


Maybe something about the particular shade of pink makes it almost neutral? I mean if leopard can be neutral, surely blush pink can? On that subject I actually just ordered a black/grey leopard coat from New Look in the ASOS sale (they got me again) which I’m hoping will be a fun twist on classic black. I also ordered myself a little (not little at all) birthday gift today which I am VERY excited about so watch this space for a reveal of that.. it’s been a long time coming and I decided to pull the trigger this morning since it takes a little while to ship. The shoes I’m wearing here (by the way) are insanely comfortable and Topshop have released a few different variations, all at only £18 over the past year. I have gold and silver and would buy another in a heartbeat so if you see them..

LAKELAND TERRIER FRUG FRENCH BULLDOGI had to pause to take this picture.. for the past 20 minutes the dogs have been in this stale mate. They do this every. single. night. Buddy eats his chew and Manny taunts him for as long as he possibly can with his.. they’re like children!

Talking of pause, it’s time for The Affair. If you’re not watching it, you should be!! I have a major theory this season and I have it on good authority that I will get some vindication in this weeks episode after so many people told me I was off base so I’m especially looking forward to this one! I’ll be back tomorrow with something a little more beauty centric.. I realise I have been very slack on the makeup front recently!!

    I love the different shades of pink. I have a pair of gorgeous pink boots and I’m still not sure I can pull them off.

    Totally love the coat, it really does suit you. I actually bought a leopard print coat from New Look recently that sounds very similar to the one you’ve just bought and sadly I’m learning it doesn’t go with everything! Anything patterned just doesn’t work with it boohoo!!!

      oh no!! I don’t actually have much pattern at all in my wardrobe so hopefully I will be able to match it to more things, I absolutely LOVE it!
