Hey all! 

The weather hasn't been cold enough yet to show you this gorgeous coat, but I'm too impatient! I've had the coat for nearly a month already! I had been eyeing it up for a while. I was drawn to the pastel colour and boyfriend fit. It's not the cheapest of coats but it is worth it for winter! I admit in the photographs I'm wearing the size 6! You can still see that it's still a little baggy. I thought the size 10 just looked shapeless on me, and was then wide on the shoulders. If you are considering this, then you can go down at least 1 or two sizes.  Whats really nice is that the fur is detachable! I would love to add my black and white fur stole to this instead! The brown does look just as nice I suppose ha! Or you can ditch the fur altogether! The only disadvantage I would say with this coat is that the sleeves are cropped. This isn't a mahoosive issue for me, and I don't mind seeing my black jumper sleeves, but practicality wise.. you arms will get chilly! 
I think it looks gorgeous with white jeans! When wearing this coat, white jeans are acceptable in the winter ha! I massively enjoyed colour blocking this look and keeping it simple and cosy.
The shoes are also a must! Okay I admit, they aren't mine they are my sisters! But they are comfy to walk in and did the job perfectly for this look! 
I really need to do a massive bag shop soon, I feel like I'm using lots of old bags lately, which isn't beneficial for you guys because I can't show you the link! To be honest though, I do prefer the similar ones more than the one I'm using in the shots. I do like the my brown bag, but its literally the only brown bag that I own! I would have picked something more stylish if I had the option, d'oh! But I've made a note to have a look for bags on my next shopping trip!
Whats great about this coat is that I could have flipped the jumper and jeans so I would be wearing black skinnies and a white jumper. It would have still looked just as nice! Navy jeans would also look lovely with this coat and I would love to style it with grey perhaps? They do the coat in pink also which does look lovely, considering I'm not a pink fan! 
Overall this coat is an investment for winter, but it's a girly and refreshing colour! I enjoyed wearing something bright when we are so influenced to wear dull dark colours throughout winter (my next blog post is pretty dull to be fair! Oh dear! Literally the opposite to this! ) This coat would have got 10/10 for me if it had a fur hood! I always prefer coats with hoods I think? Even though I rarely use them, I just think they add a nice wintery touch to a coat!
