coat love

I love coats. I have a fair few....on the basis that come Autumn/Winter they become the statement pieces as on the whole it's all anyone will notice about your outfit whilst you are doing the school run. One of my favourite purchases last year was a grey coat that I bought in Topshop for a very reasonable £58. It was so versatile as it lifted many of my beloved black ensembles but it was also great over navy. Even though it's quite a smart style it looked fab dressed down with skinnies and hi-tops, I think I could go as far as to say it's been one of my best coat purchases of all time and as luck would have it Topshop have done something almost identical again this A/W.


Just proving how very versatile can be.....I've worn it 2 days on the trot! 


Good old toppers stock similar items this season. 




I found a few alternatives to the pieces I wore yesterday too!


Do you have a favourite coat? Are you investing in a new coat this year.....if so what are you going for? I would love to hear your coat thoughts!

It's a short and sweet one today but I shall be back shortly in more coats no doubt....the weather has most definitely taken a turn for the worse.....maybe I should be looking at waterproofs?! Some new black leather boots are on the agenda thanks to all the rain we've had these past couple of days as the trainers are just not cutting it! Be back soon to report on my findings!

  2. It was such a great buy Jane! I remember it selling out and being gutted, then it was restocked and I managed to get my hands on it! Thank goodness I did as it's turned out to be such a Winter wardrobe staple....I hope to be bringing out for years to come! xx

  4. It's such a classic style it will last you for years to come. I remember ordering it and it didn't look so great on me but then again I was flitting between normal and petite sizes and the 8 in the normal looked fine and I should have got it whilst I had it in my hands. Ah well.

    1. It is such a classic isn't it Sue.....almost Crombie like which means it should stand the test of time! You could always try this years version if you still have that need to scratch the itch! ;0) x

  5. Loved your coat last year Michelle and love it even more now! It just goes to prove that if you get a classic style it lasts and keeps getting even more stylish!

    1. I love the style and I actually spotted it in navy the last time I was in Topshop which I think would also be fab.....aww gawd I now need to go back and have a 2nd look at that! xx

  7. It's a fabulous coat on you - it does really life the black, and what a bargain too! I have a camel cost which I got last year which I've just had taken up so I'm looking forward to wearing that, but it's not been very cold I don't think. Lynne xx

    1. Thank you Lynne! The grey is great at lifting black or navy and it's proved so useful while we are still experiencing such mild weather! I had a camel coat for my birthday which I've just worn for the first time....that's another useful colour too! xx

  8. I am totally with you Michelle, I have a lot of coats and I tend to base my outfits around them in the cold weather as nobody really gets to see anything else you're wearing! Your grey coat was a great investment, I have similar, but I just need the driving rain to stop now, so that I can wear it! Xx

    1. It is just the coats and shoes that is all anyone will notice isn't it! I think Topshop in particular are great at doing these really reasonably priced, classic little coats....as I've mentioned in the comments above....this is my third purchase in the last couple of years. I've only accrued 2 coats so far this year which is a wonder for me! I think I've just got to that point that I love what I've already got so I no longer need to add to it...though those are always my famous last words! ;0) xx

  9. Thank goodness I'm not alone on the coat front, the hubby thinks it's becoming a problem! I have a animal print one from Zara that I bring out year after year, I still love it to bits. Currently still on the hunt for a decent camel coloured one in a similar style to your grey one ideally. That camo sweater from Uniqlo - love it! Gutted I didn't have time in London the other day to have a good look around Uniqlo. May have to order it, been after a camo one for ages - thanks for sharing! x

    1. Oh you are definitely not alone Natalie....I also have a problem! I've whittled it down this year but I still have about a dozen coats but I've got rid of 4 this year and replace with 2 so far and I'm happy with how that area of my wardrobe is looking at the moment so I'm not looking to purchase anymore!
      The Uniqlo camo top is lush isn't it! I could easily click the button on that if I didn't already have the Gap one....and have another grey sweatshirt winging it's way to me! Anyhow that's a purchase to share another time! :0) xx
