new coat action titleIt’s freezing guys! The most important thing these days for me is wearing a warm coat and making sure I am ALWAYS with a hand cream in my bag. I’m so obsessed that I have one at work, one on my desk and one on my bedside table. Maybe I’ll do a rundown of my favourites but first things first, let’s talk about the coat! I bought this COS number way back in November before my trip to HK so I didn’t have much of a chance to wear it until recently. For some reason the COS in Birmingham’s Bullring is always full of International Chinese students browsing the store so I always feel like I blend in when I shop there, apart from the fact the A) I am not an international student and B) These girls are always dressed in effortless Scandi-Style compared to me – i.e. lots of long straight woollen coats.

My coat is 100% wool, the perfect shorter length for petite me and the coolest shape. It’s now in the sale so even though I thought it was good value back then for a decent winter coat at £150, it’s now at half price £75 (ahh!). I love how it looks unbelted but I also like the cinched in shape when it’s tied. Sometimes when I belt it, I don’t pull the loop all the way out and it reminds me a little of martial art gear, haha…just me then!
