winter coat pt.2



sweater: primark
skirt: H&M
coat: george at asda
scarf: zara

Not gonna lie but right now I feel like throwing my macbook out the window and trashing my bedroom, screaming FML FML FML. Today the clutch on my car has gone and now I have no form of transport until I get it fixed, I called up the garage and they wont be able to even see it until Friday. I should have just accepted that stupid courtesy car on my insurance when they offered it. Its gonna cost me three times as much now to get to and from work/uni. Just to make it EVEN better I have to leave my house at 8am on Wednesday for my dissertation lecture and meetings in the morning, then work 2-8 (joys of late night shopping) and then get home around half 9. Seriously FML.

AND BREATHE.

Ok, So yeah, This is my second winter coat post, This one I bought from George at Asda. I did really like this coat from George, and I had actually gone into Asda to get that one. I spotted this one, and thought I just had to have it. I sized up because I wanted a more skirted shape, the 10 looked a bit straight and I wanted it to flare out a little. I love the faux fur trim round the hood, It looks so cute! I love that my face is exactly the same in all the photos!You can view the video of the outfit post here. Its a bit craptastic because the colours are totally wrong, For some reason they look really different on my computer to how they uploaded. Ah well, Still learning with youtube, so whatevz!

  2. sucks about your car =/ hope you get it sorted soon.
    Love this coat, i never wear my coat no matter how cold it gets, i always end up wearing about 40 layers and generally looking like a marshmallow.

  8. That's terrible! Sorry to hear about your car. I used to commute to school all the time before I moved to campus and it's definitely such a chore. Especially when it snows! Hope you get it all worked out and fixed up soon.

  11. Oh you got the coat! I keep walking past the green/orange one like 'I want!' but I think it's too similar to my current duffle one so there's no point really! Sucks about the car! I still don't drive so I know how horrible it is using public transport!

  15. Oh no about your car :( I feel for you. Loving this jumper though I love cutesy animal knits :) & another lovely coat, quite reasonable for 30 quid too :) xx

  16. I've been looking for the perfect winter coat and might have to have a look in Asda as I love yours! I love that the hood is quite big too - all my other coats have small hoods (or do I just have a big head?!) and my hair gets SO wet! :(

    Also liking the jumper but it's a bit annoying that Primark are selling one since I bought a v. similar one from New Look for £28!

  17. I saw that jumper in Primark yesterday and you're right, I would need to get the 14 too as I think jumpers like that look way better oversized.

  18. I have your jumper! Well, did - I have to take it back cos the 10 was too short and the 12 just didn't wear right :( Gutted.
    Bummer about your car too, especially now it's getting colder... :/ Hey, at least you have two amazing coats to keep you warm? ;)

  19. Oh dear hun, eat some chocolate and run yourself a lovely hot bath and maybe try and foret about your car for like an hour. I used to hate working till late through xmas, the bullring stays open till ten, so I never used to get home till 11 and I had to get the bus from Birmingham, which was scary and cold. Love the coat, I still haven't got one, my cardigan is not keeping me very warm, saw one I love from Matalan, so hopefully it's still there. Hope things go ok with your car and dissertation meeting. Hugs xxx

  35. I love that stag jumper but especially LOVE the coat! It's got that perfect maths-paper check that I adore. Had a trawl for it on the website (not wanting to be a copycat but it's literally perfect for me & my shape, surely that's what matters) but it's not there - do wonder how recent it was & whether the trip to my closest Asda (not terribly close at all, wah) would be worth it but I'm definitely going to look.

  36. Gorgeous coat! Hope your car gets sorted out soon

  38. I need this coat, I stupidly walked past it the first time I saw it and now can't stop thinking of it!
    Would have never thought that jumper was from Primark either.
    Great outfit.

  39. Lily I have so many posts of yours to catch up on! Firstly, the car - don't stress yourself out, try to think it could have been worse, perhaps broken and caused an accident, it's frustrating but I'm sure it'll be fixed :) Really like these two coats, George does come out top sometimes doesn't it? You're such a brilliant ambassador for finding treasures on the cheaper end of high street you really are - I envy this ability muchly! jazzy ♥

  40. That sucks about your car, but you'll be a lot more grateful you have it after using public transport all week!

    I love that coat, I also love the first one you tried! Asda have some lovely coats with fur hoods in at the moment!

    I've also been reading along with your twitter and I think you should definitely capitalise on your blog! I'd say it's one of the most popular, and seeing as you get so many hits it's just a goldmine waiting to be opened! I personally wouldn't think you're a sellout, you have your own identity and you stand out amongst many others, but you should think about what you want to do after you finish uni first!

    tl;dr love that coat (:

  50. Hope your car gets sorted! I used to take the 8am train from Ludlow to Hereford quite a lot, it's not so bad if you just zone out with your iPod.

  51. Aaahh i bought that exact jacket a few weeks ago, and i'm utterly obsessed with it. It goes with pretty much everything in my wardrobe and it still manages to keep me warm in this horrible weather.

    I hope everything with your car gets sorted soon!

  58. I need that jumper in my life. I adore Primark and always love picking bits and bobs up - but you change it to a whole new level my dear.

  63. You can never have enough coats! The way I see it, you need some that go with a variety of outfits/situations, so that's my justification anyway.
    And may I add, you are just TOO cute! It's unfair hah :) xx
