A first time for everything

This is the outfit i wore to go shopping at the weekend. Most of the outfit you will have seen before in previous posts but as it's getting chillier i added a coat one that you haven't seen before. In fact i think this is the first time on the blog that I've worn a coat, i tend to get very warm so i tend to only break the coats out in really cold weather.

This however is a very special coat i love every single thing about it. The coat is from the first Clements Ribeiro collection at Evans. It was a very pricey coat for me at least, i paid £99 for the coat only for it to go down to £25 four weeks later. I'm sure you've all had this happen at one time or another but it's so frustrating when it does. I love the coat though so that made me feel better.
The coat is a size 20 and doesn't have any buttons or fastenings, as I've said i find i get too warm in coats most of the time so i usually wear them open anyway. It also has 3/4 sleeves but i must have short arms because they are almost full length on me. It also has pocks so you can keep your hands warm too.

I wore my polka dot New look dress with i posted about here and my Matalan bag which you have also seen here. I added my pink poodle brooch which i made myself to the collar and i was good to go.

The coat kept the wind and the chill in the air away and it was really comfy to wear. I really love this coat so will definitely be wearing it more as the weather gets colder. I also managed to get a picture of the hubby looking all beardy.

Have you had to break out your winter coat yet?

  2. I don't like coats much either for the same reason. I far prefer thick cardigans. The coat is lovely too! P.S. Dress twins again, yay. xx

  3. Love the combination!
    Must admit, I feel the cold something terrible. I've currently got a cream colour scalloped edge coat from Asda. However, with two sticky children and a black and white border collie, I don't think it will stay cream for much longer! Love the length of yours though...love the pattern...love the cut. Darn it, just love it!

  4. Perfection in an outfit! I love everything about this. I get hot in coats, too, so only wear them when it's really cold or I'm wearing a thin dress, but this one is cute and you look amazing xx

  5. I always feel uncomfortable in coats and jackets (think it's the big boobs issue), but I do own several coats and have started wearing them now, because it's been freezing. LOVE that brooch, it's the cutest little thing ever!!

    I could've bought that coat in the online sale (it did go ridiculously cheap), but I wasn't keen on the cocoon shape, as I thought it would make me look bigger, but it absolutely doesn't on you-it looks really lovely.

    1. Thank you the poodle came with a hello kitty and I could resist turning it into a brooch. It was a complete steal in the sale ! Maybe you can get your hands on it on eBay thank you :) xx

  7. That dress is beaut, the style really suits you! Love the brooch too!
    I need to find a coat that doesnt make me feel like the michelen man. It needs to be address as EVERYONE keeps asking me if im cold. What im refusing to admit is that yes I am. My scarf will be enough! x
