Coat: Taking Shape*
Jumper: New Look
Boots: New Look
I hate coats...just throwing that one out there. Maybe it's because it means I am finally admitting to myself that we're in for a few months of horrendously chilly weather and winter has finally arrived, maybe it's because I hate the bulky suffocation that I feel while wearing most coats or maybe it's a bit of both! My morning commute generally means that I freeze on the train platform, sweat for 20 minutes on the tube and freeze once again when I'm outside so I am generally enamoured by a coat that can keep me warm but also one I can whip off and carry without dislocating my shoulder/elbowing someone in the face (total count: 3).
The above coat is from Taking Shape - an Australian brand who are new to the UK Plus Size scene. I say 'coat', it's more of a layering affair. It's lightweight and quite pricey but it's a definite worthy investment - it's made really well and the style is classy and timeless. It'll definitely be making an frequent appearance this winter, and probably next winter too! It'll also save people's faces from my feisty elbow on the tube while I'm trying to de-coat myself - a winner!
