2018: the year of the coat

I was always that kid that rolled their eyes whenever their mum told them to take a coat, but it’s now 2018 and I CAN’T STOP BUYING THEM!! I usually head to Missguided whenever I’m looking for clothes – as that’s where I bought my iconic yellow puffer that I’m living in (linked here) – but I decided to venture over to New Look’s website as I used to love them. Oh my gosh, I found two gorgeous coats and couldn’t decide between them so (of course) had to buy both! 

– CLICK FOR THE COAT – 
– CLICK FOR THE BOOTS – 

This sassy blue number had me feeling like a sexy cookie monster! I paired it with some striped sock boots and a black skirt and top (which you evidently can’t see!). It’s the perfect thing to throw on over an all black outfit and looks the perfect mix of classy and fun. 

PROS:
– super fluffy
– gorgeous colour
– IT HAS POCKETS

CONS:
– makes me want to eat cookies
– probably won’t survive the British weather (rain, rain and more rain)

The second jacket I ordered was this black and pink faux fur aviator. I’ve wanted an aviator for so long and this one was just TOO cute! The entire inside is faux fur which makes it super cosy and soft, and I feel that the pink really adds something. Like the first coat, this probably isn’t that practical for British weather but now we’re heading into Spring (not really but shh) the weather will be cheering up and this jacket will be perfect!

– CLICK FOR THE AVIATOR JACKET –
– CLICK FOR THE JEANS –

PROS:
– ridiculously soft
– makes ripped jeans and boots look super cute and co-ordinated

CONS:
– I don’t want to wear anything underneath it

    Both of these coats look fab on you!! I adore your photographs as well 🙂 The Aviator Jacket is my fave, but I have to say that I am a little biased because I own one of my own! Great post and so happy I found your blog today xo
