Last Saturday night posed a tricky conundrum! It was chilly, to say the least, but I was due to grace the town with my presence and celebrate festive tidings with my hockey team. Now I am not one of those girls that can flit out the door wearing next to nothing in sub-zero conditions. I see them scantily gallivanting around and a maternal air overwhelms me and I just want to wrap them up in a big coat and mittens and ply them with horlicks.
I therefore required some warmth up top, to conceal the goosebumps in between the bar-hopping. I unearthed this (faux) fur coat which I purchased circa 2004 from Miss Selfridge I do believe...
Asides from being rather chuffed it still fitted my no longer 18 year old frame, I was just thankful to have something snug to wrap up in, before embarking out into the chill. All my other coats and jackets were just exasperating me, either too formal, too scruffy or their total inadequacy to keep me warm.
I do love fur coats, and cannot help but give them a little stroke whenever I walk past them in a shop...just me??
I now have my eyes on this little number please (if it ever comes back in stock)
The other elements of my outfit:
top: H&M - skirt: H&M - Jewellery: Accessorize
Hair thanks to the O and a little side pinning.
Do you find wintertime outerwear a bit of a chore?
Are you a fan of the faux fur?
