You better belieeeve that all this sunny weather is down to me buying a cosy coat. I’m convinced anyway – if I bought cute shorts and a crop top I’m sure it’d piss it down for the next six months.
Excluding Sod’s law, I did want to invest in a new coat to mostly save for Autumn/Winter 2017. Okay, £25 in the Missguided sale isn’t exactly the investment of the century, but I feel like it’s a snuggly enough style to see me into the following season… If it’s extra cosy, then I’m not bothered if it’s bang on trend or not. Right now I’m just having it as an ‘if I need it’ coat – y’know, when you head out with the ‘rents and the first thing your dad says is ‘have you got a coat?’… It’s something I can wrap round me if it does get a bit chilly!
It’s this time of year when I tend to make the most of this sort of purchase – A/W wardrobe staples can be expensive, so for classics I tend to get in there early while seasonal sales are on. I’ve included a few of my favourites below – they’re all things that I’d be happy to wear in 6 months time, but a bit cheaper than they would have been a few months ago.
