A/W Coat and Boots
I know it's been a while but thought I'd do an outfit of the day post. It's not often I'm wearing clothes that are still available to buy!
This year I fancied getting some winter boots. I'd bought some flat ankle boots from Next last year and had worn them almost to death. This year I was lusting after some knee length ones and settled on the long sludge boots from Next. Now I'm always nervous about trying on such boots in a shop for the fear they won't zip up but these were fine. The boots are available in regular fit and wide and after much deliberation I felt the wide were more comfortable on. I didn't find much difference in the regular and wide fit to be honest so I'm not sure how generous the "wide" sizing really is. I was torn on the colour and while the tan are lovely, I felt I'd get more wear from the black. I struggled to find them in store but got them online... eventually.
I decided this year that I wouldn't buy a winter coat. I have a lot of them already. A lot, a lot. However, last winter I was pregnant/just after having a baby and about 3 stone larger than normal so I didn't buy one then and thus the temptation to treat myself this year was nipping at me. I spotted a super soft and chic pinky nude one while browsing around M&S and for £59 and armed with a 20% off voucher I decided I HAD to have it. I'm so pleased I did, I've found it great for a with jeans and boots look and for work. I am a bit nervous about how well it will cope with stains etc so if you have any reassuring stories for me, please share.
Marks and Spencer M&S Notch Neck Zipped Coat in Light Putty for £59. NEXT Zip Long Sludge Boots in Black for £85.
I still love my H&M faux fur stole from a few winters ago and think it looks pretty cute with the coat too.
Excuse the silly faces. It's not easy getting your photo taken randomly beside an unusually busy road between rain showers.
