Shearling lake

Little Me wears: A H&M dress, Boohoo coat, and Primark bag and boots.
Little B wears: A TK Maxx knit, Topman jeans and River Island shoes.

Last week in London seemed to be the perfect opportunity to wear our new bits and pieces, because it's kinda mandatory right? Little B had wanted a thicker knit for some time, and the fact that he's too hardcore for a coat meant that it made for a (semi) sensible purchase (it's not cable knit - but we made progress!). And I bought this coat a few weeks ago after deciding that my eight year old Topshop duffle coat could do with taking a back seat for a while, and when this Boohoo coat looked like it stood up to the challenge, I couldn't not tick the checkout box.


Admitedlly, it wasn't as thick as I'd have liked (we all get cold sometimes y'know!), but when Little B said I should keep it - obviously I kept it...It's not many times you hear your partner say that, so you have to abuse these things. Let's just not talk about the fact I'm still cold, and that I could do with another coat..
So besides this issue, I feel cool in it, like I know what I'm on about, and where I'm going (who knew a coat could make you feel like that?) and turning sleeves back are cool. Well that's what my mama told me one time.
And finally FYI, Little B really isn't too hardcore for a coat. No, we're just in a lengthy battle that I think he'd look good in a parka. He begs to differ, thinking it'll make him look about twelve. I'm trying to tell him that at least he'd look like a trendy twelve year old rather than an old man in a coat too big for him.
Sometimes I think that maybe we'll just never be cut out for being coat kinda people...

  1. I am so in love with your outfit. The dress, coat, everything! :)
    I know what you mean about some coats being too thin, I always have this problem and end up still being freezing!

  5. Lovely coat! It really suits you. But tis a shame it's not very warm! I always find the nicest coats aren't very warm...which defeats the point of a coat. I'm currently lusting over a gorgeous mint coat, which doesn't look very warm so it's putting me off slightly..but it is only £20 so.... xx

  10. That coat is so nice! You'll just have to do lots of layering to make it warmer, or of course use it as the perfect excuse to get another one!

  15. I love the sherling detail on this coat! Always a shame when you buy something online and its not exactly how you expected it to be. You may not be warm but you do look stylish KDogg.
