The Winter Coat in Action

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion.

Last week I wrote about wearing my winter coat without actually, um, physically wearing it. See, it’s been really rather mild up north. Leather jacket weather has continued throughout October and quite frankly, there’s been no place for a wool-and-faux-fur full length coat. But although the reasonable weather continues, today I just wanted to cuddle up in something fluffy.

See? Here I am, cuddling up. There’s something very comforting about a warm winter coat, and it was just what I needed on a grey, drizzly day like today.

I’ve been feeling a bit ‘blah’ about my wardrobe recently – I think it’s the weather (all ailments can be blamed on the weather at this time of year). But that’s another great thing about a winter coat – a long one like this is an outfit in itself, so what you’re wearing underneath is inconsequential… until you reach your destination and have to take the coat off, of course. But for those glorious outdoor moments, all a statement coat needs is a lick of lipstick and some great shoes. These, by Clarks and c/o Sarenza, are called ‘Halloween Cool’. How apt!

I asked last week and many of you said no, so I’ll ask again – are you wearing a winter coat yet? How do you style yours?

im just bidding on this matalan dress on ebay. Im in LOVE after your previous post about it. And the colour suits me so well i just couldnt miss this chance to own it.
Love the coat too. Im too long armed (and legged) to find beautiful coats that fit!


I love your winter coat! I am definitely wearing my winter coat, and have been for a few weeks, sporadically, in rotation with a leather/parka coat I bought. The weather can’t make up it’s mind! x

I’ve been wearing mine over a month now – freezing my butt off up here in Scotland! Love the fur on yours. Your hair is looking rather lovely too 🙂 x


I have snuck one of my winter coats on in the last week – a wool tweedy cocoon style one. I have the same yellow Matalan dress but it’s a bit longer on me – I’m a bit of a shorty.


I’m a new follower as I’ve just found your blog via Twitter but I just had to comment and say that this coat is absolutely beautiful and looks gorgeous on you!

Is it a sign that I’m old, now that I mainly only wear my clarks brogues, just because they are the comfiest shoes ever?!!
A slightly worrying development. All other shoes feel awful in comparison.
I love the coat, need to go & check out the TK selection, but I rarely find good stuff now the Leeds store is on the Headrow, it was more secret when it was on the top floor of the Headrow Shopping Centre!

LOVE this coat, and those shoes are fab, I have been digging mine out to add a bit of colour to otherwise monochrome outfits, at least I can still wear my thinner macs!
