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.

HtCC – Spring Dresses

As soon as the weather turns even the slightest bit sunny and warm, I have to put my favourite floral dresses on. Theres something about spring that makes me want to dress like a garden and drink tea out of beautiful tea cups. Here are a few dresses that I need in my wardrobe now (please, thanks)

These three dresses are from AX Paris*, a site that I’ve not actually looked at that much before, but I love the dresses above – especially the middle butterflies dress. Its not the sort of thing I’d usually wear but I really like that style at the moment.

I love this dress from Oasis. I have quite a few dresses already in a similar shape, and although I think the neckline could do with being a bit lower (because high necks on me just end up giving me a boob shelf), I love the pattern for being so bright!

Another brand that I haven’t really looked at recently is Matalan. I know they’ve been increasing the stuff that they do with bloggers, which is probably why I even looked at their site – I’ve not shopped there since the days when you needed a membership card (I think you had to have a limited company as well to get the card, truly old school!) Both of these dresses are only £25, and come in sizes up to size 18 – brilliant!

Another dress in a familiar shape, this time from Monsoon! I know what suits me (well, mostly) and this does! The pattern on this one is very English countryside-y – does that make sense?

OK, now I need to go and sit on the patio, drink tea and eat cucumber sandwiches and scones. Its odd what looking at dresses can make you do!
