COAT GAME

COAT: VINTAGE
SCARF: PRIMARK
JEANS: TOPSHOP

A winter coat and pair of boots are always top of my winter wardrobe wishlist. This year I bought an great pair of knee length boots from Dune and I cant wait to wear them, still on the hunt for a pair of suede thigh boots too! but I've really struggled to find a great coat. They have either been way out of my spending budget or didn't measure up in the quality department. Is it me or are some of the coats almost paper thin with a £70+ price tag, how can I justify such a purchase its blitz in London, being warm is essential!!! Then, after the billionth wardrobe clear out!,  I remembered this fantastic vintage coat handed down to me from my mum and it really is an amazing coat and bang on the camel colour trend. 

I picked up this extra long super soft cable knit scarf from Primark for £4.00, I bought it recently so it should still be in the shops, I've really gone off snoods this year from some reason but I love that I can wrap this around and around as much times as I want. Its like a hug for my neck :)

The autumnal colours of my Adidas shopper are so vibrant in real life. I've wanted a shopper bag for so long but they always seem to be in dark colours, I have enough black bags in my life. Strangest thing is people have stopped me in the street to ask me where I got it from, I have suppressed the urge to give into sarcasm because obviously the Adidas logo is not enough of a clue loool duh... 

Did you find your winter coat this year?
