What I Wore: the Snowcoat

Coat: ASOS
Jeans: Topshop
Boots: Dr. Martens
Scarf: Zara (old: vaguely similar)

A day before our second major bout of snow in the UK, the pale pink raincoat of my dreams arrived at my door. Therefore, so far, I've been using it as more of a snowcoat.

I actually planned this purchase in time for the Winter/Spring transitional rainy period. However, naturally, the weather in England never does what we hope, or even expect, it to do, going, rather, in completely the opposite direction and sending us a blizzard. In fact, it’s somehow a combination of a blizzard and a storm - the beast from the east blew over and then Storm Emma realised she could have some serious fun with this country’s inability to manage during extreme weather.

Anyway, this gorgeous millennial pink coat is from ASOS - mine is specifically from the Tall section, but I know that it's available in standard, petite and curve sizes, and maybe even in maternity. It's kind of the perfect coat, and it's one I've had my eye on ever since it came onto the site. I'm sure I mentioned it in my most recent 'Currently Coveting' post, and I soon realised it would 100% be filling a gap in my wardrobe and was a necessary purchase.

The coat has a super warm borg lining on both this upper body and hood, ideal for keeping your head warm through these cold winds - especially if, like me, you're really not a hat person. The main thing that appealed to me about this coat is how darn long it is. As a tall girl, it's usually a struggle to find a coat that covers my bum, much less one that's virtually knee-length. Therefore, this one's pretty perfect, and picture perfect too - isn't it just the nicest shade of pink?

Honestly, could not recommend this coat enough. I know it's going to work well for three out of four seasons (and will probably still be useful in the four), and I'm sure I'll have it in my wardrobe forevermore.

Here I've completed the outfit with my staple pair of Dr. Martens, black skinny Topshop jeans and a big check Zara scarf (obviously with an additional three layers underneath that you can't see).

I'm really hoping to start adding more fashion to my content, so I hope this is the kind of thing you'd like to see more of (also, I plan on taking multiple pictures for each outfit post so you can see the clothes a little better; this one only has one because the weather was way too harsh to be standing around posing!)

I hope some of you are enjoying the snow at the moment - I can't say it's my favourite kind of weather unfortunately - and if you're in a warmer climate, appreciate it! What I'd give to see some sun for a change!

Until next time.
