I didn't know what to call this blog post as I've lost count on how many camel coat blog posts I've done. I think I''ve pretty much given up looking for one for myself, I just can't find one the right shade that complements my skin tone. That being said, I still think it's a great staple in anyones wardrobe so I'm always keeping my eye out. I found this gorgeous one below in Zara whilst shopping with a client. It looked so good on her (not on me when I tried it on another day) and is such an easy coloured coat to wear. It's 58% wool so not a bad amount of warmth in there for the money.

Whilst browsing for the above I also found this one which has 50% wool and a double breasted style if you prefer that style coat on you.

As much as I've resigned myself to stop the hunt, it won't stop me trying on if I see one. Whilst returning some kids clothes I spied this one on a mannequin in H&M. My heart skipped a beat as I literally thought it might be it. The colour wasn't bad (and I wasn't 100%, so my colour wasn't great!) and it fitted lovely around the shoulders and I loved the belt. But yep, it was miles too long on little old me. At £79.99 it wasn't cheap enough to warrant the additional work it needed to get it to the right length. It was lined so it wouldn't have been a quick job for a seamstress. Gutted yes! My husband always goes on about not buying items that need alterations. I don't 100% agree but his voice was ringing in my head at the time with this one. It was 51% wool and 37% cotton so actually a pretty good mix of natural fibres as well as a little others. I can't see it online in camel anymore, there is grey and black which is selling quick.
