The “In Between” Coat

I have been waiting for the perfect day to wear this coat that has been hanging patiently in my wardrobe since last Summer. Would you believe that I picked a day in January to wear it? I can’t quite believe it either, but it shouldn’t come as a surprise considering how confusing the weather has been this Winter. 

My scarf and gloves have yet to venture out from my closet, and I can’t remember the last time I saw ice on the floor. Baffling. 

Anyway, on new years day we ventured out nice and early to walk the dog before driving to Bluewater shopping centre. It was bright and sunny so I threw on my gingham duster coat from Little Mistress over jeans and boots. 

I recently spotted this exact coat on fashion’s IT girl at the moment, Gigi Hadid (click here to see). Gigi is my latest style crush, and I kinda love the fact we both own the same coat!

This is the perfect “in between” coat, when it’s not cold enough for a thick woolen coat, yet you still need a little warm on your shoulders. It’s ideal for shopping as I don’t need to take it off and lug it around over my arm (thus creating more room for shopping bags). 

I paired it with one of the latest trends at the moment, a western style belt. I’ve had mine in my wardrobe for a while now (still available from BooHoo) but I’ve linked a few similar styles below incase you fancy a browse. Western belts can be paired with pretty much anything, from a casual style to toughening up a girlie outfit.
