For once my fashion post is going to be about me rather than the kids. It’s about time as my sense of style has seriously been neglected! I’ve seen a lot of posts about ‘school run style’ and looking good when you when you do the school run. I must admit, I just throw on leggings, a long top or dress, and a hoodie, drag a brush through my hair and rub some face cream on. I don’t think that’s going to change, I just need to drop Tyler off and pick him up on time. Sometimes the time is super tight as I’d have just finished feeding Honey Nut.
With it being winter, the coat is going to cover up what I’m wearing anyway. I have a grey jersey coat from New Look that has lasted me years and seen me through 2 pregnancies as it’s so baggy. I don’t want to change my wardrobe, but I would love a funky set of coats to choose from, all in bright colours. I had a look online to find my dream set of coats if money was no object. This is what I found:
- JD Williams – Hooded Duffle Coat – Red – £59
- Boden – Jennie Coat – Blue – £170.10
- H&M – Green Coat – £29.99
- Boden – Amanda Duffle Coat – Yellow – £161.10
There’s no way I can afford to buy all these coats, but if I had to choose one it would be a red hooded wool coat – ideally I don’t want a duffle one, but with a belted waist. I couldn’t find one online, so this JD Williams is the best I could find. I am going to have to keep an eye out whenever I’m out and about, and keep checking the charity shops, sometime you can find a gem there. Wish me luck!
What are you wearing for a coat this winter?
