My New Coat!

So far I've avoided doing outfit posts on my blog because I don't have anyone to take pictures for me really but frankly, I love this coat too much not to feature it so excuse how awkward some of these pictures are!

The coat in question is from SheInside and is a 'salt and pepper' speckled pattern with flecks of gold running through it, which you can't really see in the pictures on the website so that was a surprise for me when it arrived! The coat is a really soft tweed material with a satin-feeling lining. It's more of a blazer than a typical coat, but it's much longer than a blazer normally is so it can be worn for casual or smart events. Due to the neutral colours, I also find it really easy to style with outfits as it doesn't really clash with anything.

As you can see here, the collar has lapels like a blazer, although the smaller one closest to the neck is very stiff on mine so I tend to wear it up - which is actually very convenient for keeping my neck warm, and isn't too noticeable underneath all of my hair! Judging from the photos from their website, I'm guessing the style is for it to be worn up, but if you are persistent enough in turning it down then it will lay flat like an ordinary blazer!

One of the features that I really like about this coat is that it only has one button, so it looks very flattering when it is done up. I do still prefer to wear it undone, but it means that it looks less bulky when it's windy and I have to do it up to stop it from flying open and making me cold!
I wasn't expecting this coat to be as warm as it is, but because of the lining and the warm outer material, you feel pretty toasty!

One thing that I do think is worth mentioning is the delivery - I ordered 4 things from SheInside on November 29th and it didn't arrive December 30th! I know it was probably due to it being over the Christmas period and because the package was shipped from China, but they didn't even dispatch the order until December 16th which I wasn't too impressed with...
I will definitely be trying SheInside again though to see if I have more luck with delivery times at a quieter time of year, especially since they have such cute clothes!

This coat is available from here and is currently on sale for £26. 73, so get it while you can if you're interested!

    1. I've got a Size Small :) I tend to be a UK 8 and it fits nicely, although can get a bit tight around the shoulders if I layer up too much! x
