Disco Pants: AA
If there's one thing I hate more than exams and revision, it's winter. I absolutely cannot stand being cold and usually start frantically searching for layers as soon as the last day of August is ticked off the calendar...basically, I ended up investing in a new winter coat aaaaall the way back in September - if only I was as organised with other aspects of my life! As you can imagine this coat was rendered practically useless for the first couple of months and I had to be content with simply admiring it sitting pretty in my wardrobe. Not anymore! As we all know, the weather took an icy turn for the worse a couple of weeks ago - and I knew exactly what I was going to wear! I chose this coat because I LOVE the over-sized boyfriend look (which I rambled about here) and the neutral colour is so versatile. Better yet, this coat actually does what it says on the tin: it really does keep me SO warm. I don't know what it is about most coats, but no matter how snuggly and warm they look I'm still usually left feeling just as cold as if I hadn't bothered (I'm looking at you, faux fur Zara coat). The jersey lining in this coat gives it that extra insulation and I literally feel as though I'm wrapped in a cocoon (as the name would suggest). The only thing I would change is the fastening; 'invisible' poppers are only invisible if you do the coat up, otherwise they're on full show and look kind of cheap...a nice set of buttons wouldn't have gone a miss! Also, 'oversized' is a bit of an understatement - this coat is hauuuuuge. I'd suggest downsizing at least one, maybe two sizes!
I've almost finished all my Christmas shopping! Just have two more gifts to buy and I'm taking a little shopping trip into London with my mum and brother on Thursday which I'm really looking forward to, so should get the last bits then. I love buying presents! x
