Totes for the coats

What can I say about coats? I LOVE them!! I can't get enough of outer wear, a good coat can really make an outfit and when they come in so many colours, styles and shapes it makes me want to have them all. I have a pretty expansive coat collection, all of them different. I really enjoy throwing them over an outfit to then take off later and reveal something unexpected underneath. I've put together a 'few' collages to show case my collection. This isn't all of my coats but it the majority and the ones I wear the most.

I probably buy 2 new coats every year, which is why I have such a large collection. My favourite is the leopard print one but I do adore my sailor one which I've had for a few years now.

Once spring comes, my coats will be swapped for lighter jackets but until then I'll still enjoy my big hoods, fluffy collars and massive pockets.

Stay warm x

  10. I think I only have three - I find it hard to part with my money and coats always seem so expensive!

    Loving that green one - so beautiful.

  17. Oh I adore that cape! Of course I love the green coat as I have the black version haha! I just think its so elegant. A little bit of leopard print never goes amiss either!
    I too have a fetish for coats, I tend to stock up on them in the sale because I can't keep spending £80+. Topshop is the best for sale coats! I did however get 5 coats in a space of a month for Christmas and my birthday so I think its best if I stay away from buying them for a bit haha!

  18. I was gonna buy that parka, but the Mr said that's what his sister would buy and I realized that he's right that it isnt my style at all :P haha! I only have one coat that I bought like 4 years ago, but it was really expensive (even though it's not designer) and it's absolutely perfect and I love it so much that I can't imagine what will I do if it gets ruined! :(
