oh hey there

Thursday, 1 September 2011


Soon to be off on my travels, I will be missing out on two months of the UK's autumn/winter - tragic, eh? Despite this, everyone else's constant babble about their upcoming winter wardrobes and the prospect of snow has me all kinds of excited about burgundy hues, fur and shoe boots.

While I can't justify the need for a new coat - #moneyproblems #imleavingonajetplane - I spotted this absolute stunner in Topshop yesterday. It's beautiful, right? A part of me is constantly crying at the fact that this will never be mine.

What style of winter coat has won you over this year?

  1. This is lovely! I've fallen in love with the leopard print fur coat from topshop, but it's £98! On the other hand I never find coats I like, oh winter dilemmas! I can't tell if I'm jealous or not that you're missing winter xx

  3. oooh it's a beaut! I'm not sure I can afford a new coat, so I'll be relying on last year's one. Ooh yay when you off on your travels? xx

  4. This looks perfect for autumn/winter, the colours, the print and I bet its super soft and snuggly! Although knowing Topshop, probably overpriced too! xx

  5. I can imagine that with black leggings and some lovely boots! Ouch at the price tag though! Hopefully Primark will have something in which looks similar... hopefully :P

  9. Ooh that looks gorgeous! I love buying autumn/winter clothes, they're much more 'me' than summer clothes. I've spotted lots of lovely jackets recently but I already have too many, not allowed to buy another one this year!

  11. It's definitely a stunner. :) I went to TopShop for the first time when I was in England and saw a gorgeous military coat I didn't have the money for. It was a sad day ... ;)

  23. I saw this coat yesterday in topshop and fell in love with it. However, i put it on and it looked hideous. So be comforted in the fact that it looks better on the hanger...
