Finally, I get to do a nod towards winter. I'd make the winter is coming joke, but I recall I've done that already so many times on this blog. I've been thinking and thinking about what sort of winter coat I want to invest in for this season. As I love coats and boots (and Topshop, obvz) I always try to pick one coat and one pair of boots per season. This way I don't end up with a million coats (I still have a million coats) and loads of boots (yup, loads of them too). At least I try. I've had this awesome Topshop one for about two winters now, and it still feels as timeless and relevant as to when I bought it. It's just really classic. I remember at the time it was one of the most expensive things I'd ever bought at the time (I seem to recall it was about £120), and I gasped but vowed I'd wear it non-stop. Cost per Wear my friends. The best way to justify anything you want that's expensive. I do love this coat though, but the lining has all ripped, and the fur has started to go a little weird. I can't recall all the ways I've worn it, but it's definitely a gem in my coat collection.

I think this year I want one of those really long oversized boyfriend style coats that Zara seem to be doing. They look really warm and thick and again something that's super timeless. I also would LOVE to get one of those pretty powder pink coats, but I don't think I'd get enough wear out of it, so I reckon its one to look out for in the sales when they come back around. Ah coats, I love you.

  34. Love the coat!! I agree I'd love one of the Topshop powder pink coats but I'm just not sure the price tags worth it when I'll probably just wear it this season.

  42. Sounds like it was a good investment to get you through 2 winters and still be a classic! I hate it when coats start to get a bit manky from too much wear.

  53. I just bought my winter coat and boots today and I'm so in love with them, I got a leather coat with white fur lining from river island and some docs and realized when I got home that they matched because they're both leather and white fur lining!
