So this is the start of my first winter outfit posts without any ‘Summer holiday’ posts to be thrown in after and annoy you all – unfortunately no more summer holidays until next year! [insert sad face here!] As the weather is changing and the mornings are so dark I am dressing warmer and warmer everyday. For this outfit post I decided to bring out my favourite long camel coat and base the whole outfit around it.

You know that time last year when everyone went crazy over camel tones after the Kardashians were pictured out wearing these style coats? well thats were this coat kind of stemmed from. I didn’t jump at the chance straight away to get one, as I didn’t really like any that were on the high street. However one evening when I was shopping in Marks & Spencer’s and there was a sale on and I was browsing the very miss matched sale rack when just as I was about to give up, I spotted this long camel wool coat. It looked rather big and extremely long but when I looked at it, it was a size 10 which was one size up then I am in general, however I tend to go up a size in outwear so I am able to wear it over jumpers and thicker garments. It was the best bargain I could have got my hands on it was around £350 reduced to £80! I couldn’t leave it there and it was the last one and I had never seen it before, so obviously I couldn’t leave it there.

I decided to pair this coat with a cream faux fur short sleeve jumper from H&M which is so warm and cosy,  and makes me feel like a teddy bear whilst wearing it. I then decided to give the outfit a pop of colour and wear my burgundy wax coated jeans I picked up from Zara at a bargain price of £7.99! Even though they are a slightly different shade to my jeans I put my burgundy boots on from Next which also happened to be in the sale reduced from £85.00 to £30, they give the outfit a bit more of a contrast so it wasn’t too much the ‘same’

Next for accessories I decided to finish off and complete the look with my faux crocodile skin effect Hugo Boss bag which was rather expensive but I treated myself in Florida last year. I do buy a lot in the sales so once in a while its ok to splurge.

I hope you enjoyed this post, What is your go to winter outfit this year?
