The Summer Coat

Not only does Spring make me want to head to the shops and update my wardrobe but it also means I can bring out the lighter weight garments that I just don't get enough wear out of, so they feel like new.  I feel the cold, I really do.  I am sat here now with the heating still on, several layers and I'm still cold.  However it doesn't stop me, I just suffer quietly!  This Topshop coat was purchased when I was pregnant with my now 3 year old.  I saw it whilst on my friends hen do in Windsor, months later when it was cold it naturally went into the sale for around £40.  I don't feel like it's had a proper chance in my wardrobe but I have been wearing it a lot of late (naturally over a jumper and vest!).

I love it's simplicity with the twist locks to do it up and deep pockets.  The sleeves do look best rolled up which isn't ideal for cold me but needs must.

It's a great colour - I vaguely remember it being described as a blush pink, which is correct, it has those warm tones about it.  The temperatures have dropped these last couple of days but I hear it's set to warm up (double the amount of washing I can dry in one day then - hooray!) so it will no doubt be thrown on even more for the school run.  It just has that ability to tidy up an outfit if you know what I mean!

  3. Lovely coat, and a great bargain! I keep eyeing the lighter weight macs and dusters for Spring, but I have so many coats that even I might feel a little pang of guilt if I bought another one! xx

    1. Ah thanks Andrea, so in need of a chop and re-colour, that grey is peeping through far too much! x
