I hope you’ve all had a better January than most people seem to have had if Instagram updates are anything to go by. The general consensus seems to be it was a crappy, depressing month that most are glad to see the back of. I don’t mind January. I like getting back into a normal routine after Christmas again, and It’s my birthday right in the middle so the cold, dark miserable days don’t all blend into one as much. A January birthday can be a bit rubbish. Nobody is really up for celebrating a couple of weeks after all the Christmas festivites. My husband kind of has no choice though 😉 and we had a lovely day with the kids and some good food and wine.
As a present he gave me a Zara voucher- lesson learned after the exchange of unwanted gifts over the years! I personally LOVE receiving vouchers and prefer to think of them as practical rather than impersonal! Initially I was going to pick up a few things in the sale or start adding an injection of new Spring stuff back into my wardrobe but ultimately the cold won out and I went for yet another Winter coat. I couldn’t be happier with this Faux fur number though. I’ve worn it so much already and after initial reservations about the colour, it actually goes with just about everything. It’s also really warm so I’ve been grabbing it and wearing it with things it doesn’t go so well with too! I’ve worn it on the school run with trackie bottoms and although I look like a dogs dinner, I feel like I’m going out wrapped in a blanket, so cosy trumps style. I’ve been getting messages about it and people seem to think it’s a teddy coat but its actually faux fur. It’s warmer than my teddy coats (like this one from a post this time last year) so being the coldest person alive I just want to wear it every day. I got a size medium for reference.
I’ve added links to some of the outfits I’ve worn it with during the week. See my edit of similar styles at different prices at the bottom of the post! Have a lovely weekend x
