It was dress down day at school for Daisy and Bobby on Tuesday and Bobby chose his outfit himself. When he came downstairs he had a jacket on very similar to this one that I had totally forgotten about! It was age 4-5 but with the sleeves rolled up still looked totally cool and he said he was too warm in his big coat and didn’t want a rain coat on. This got me thinking about cool coats for now. This one is fab, as is this one, thisis now a fab price in the sale as is this one. Below are some others that I think look fabulous.
How good is this trench coat, a total total bargain and in real life it looks so good and much more expensive. New Look have some really great items in at the minute at really good prices, here are some other bits I was loving…
For me a trench is never really ‘in’ fashion, it is just something that every woman should have in their wardrobe as it is the perfect coat for all weathers. However this year it is big news and was seen all over the catwalks, so there are some beauties about. It fits perfectly with nearly all outfits. Dresses, skirts and jeans and is so easy to dress up or down. I think it looks best with the sleeves rolled up to show a bit of what’s underneath and as much as I love it casual, I also love it cinched in at the waist with a belt for work. If you use the belt it comes with always fasten it in a knot not with the buckle (it just seems to make it look cooler). It is a must buy for this time of year when winter coats are just that bit too warm and we want to inject some Spring into our wardrobe.
It feels like January is going on forever and that it is dark most of the day. I have been wearing the same jumpers on repeat and need something fresh to get me out of these rainy days blues. This is where a beautiful new shirt comes in and there are now some gorgeous ones around. Add a cardigan, some jeans with a turn up and your ever classic Stans and you are good to go. The mac is so much more gorgeous in real life (you can roll down the sleeves), I saw it the other day in store and it looks really expensive.
Mango is on fire, I love it for everyone at the minute and they just seem to keep getting it right! How cool is this jumper for the boys? It comes in 3 colours ways but this is by far my favourite (although I do love the khaki). Below are what I think it would look fabulous with.
I truly believe that a coat should be an investment piece. It should definately not be something that you scrimp on as over the colder seasons this is going to be the main part of your outfit. The sales are the best time for picking up a more expensive coat at a fabulous price. I have selected some of my favourites of the sales.
We have had a bit of a clear out in Bobby’s bedroom over the last couple of days and quite a lot of his clothes were way too small, hence why my 1st child’s sale post is for the boys! I have had to place quite a few orders. This, I think, is just a start on sales for them as I only got through 4 shops! My tips for sales buying would be to buy more expensive pieces whilst they are reduced and to buy bigger sizes (especially in coats and shoes) so you can stash them for next year.
