HtCC: Winter Calls

I love love love winter coats. You’re going to be wearing this for at least half of the year – you need to find one that’s perfect for you. If I could, I would have lots of coats in all different colours – although from my selection below, you can probably guess that they’ll all be in a certain style!

First up from ASOS, where I have bought my last three winter coats from (all still going strong and looking good!) is this purple coat with the folded over collar* (£59.50) – I love the buttons on this coat, much prettier than the usual ones that come with a coat! This red fit and flare coat* (£70) is also cute, although looks a little short here. (I like a coat that’s about knee length)

From Dorothy Perkins, this military frock coat* (£75) is again, a bit short, but would be a comfy coat for the weekend to wear with jeans. Topshop have this cute “oatmeal” coloured clasp coat* (£85) which also has a hood (I love hoods on coats) while Matalan has this red longline coat with a belt * for just £45.

Finally, from the Curve section of ASOS is this yellow coat* (£75) which I love (and obviously, instantly thought of Sarah Mia for it!) or if you don’t mind waiting a bit longer to get a coat, this cute charcoal coat* is $74.99 from Modcloth (although you will end up paying duties and tax, sob)

If these are a bit expensive for you, why not have a look at A Thrifty Mrs’ post about purse friendly coats.

Just A Short Stroll…

Its been a while since I did an outfit post (or a post of any sort…)

Dress: Dorothy Perkins | Underskirt: eBay | Socks: eBay | Apron: Amazon (I really hope my purchase history isn’t used for anything, since this was called a sexy French maid apron…) | Trainers: Underused Nike’s

Yeah, so its not a normal sort of outfit. This is what I wore for Race for Life on Saturday: thankfully, the gales and rain over the past few days managed to hold off for a few hours, enough time that I got sunburnt on my chest, ffs. I’ll be doing a proper sort of post about it, but we managed to get round the 5k in 59 mins, doing it three legged, dressed as Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We do not do things by halves. There is still lots of time left to sponsor us – no excuses now!

HtCC – Wet Weather Necessities

If your Twitter time line is anything like mine, this week, all you’ll have read is “OMG ITS RAINING AGAIN” or “LOL LOL LOL HOW CAN WE STILL BE IN A DROUGHT LOOK AT THE RAIN” (Don’t understand how we can be in the wettest drought? This article from Channel 4 explains it).

I’ve actually been quite happy about the rain – I bought these short wellies from Primark a month or so ago, but the weather hasn’t been completely horrible to justify wearing them without people giving you a bit of side eye. Whatev, my feet are dry. They remind me of these Mel booties, although I prefer the Primark bow. When the weather was starting to turn horrible a week or so ago, I looked at the broken brolly I was using and quickly placed an order with Amazon for a new one. Thanks to my Prime account, it was delivered the next day – I bought this Susino umbrella* for about £12, and I love it because I like clear umbrellas, its not a dome shape (so I can share with other people!) and it has a button to automatically open. That was exciting when I was 8 and had a little red umbrella, and its not gotten any less exciting as I’ve gotten older.

I’ve blogged before about raincoats, but I thought I’d share some cute wellies and umbrellas, because lets face it, we live in the UK, you need a decent umbrella at the very least.
