If the coat fits...

14 comments







Spring is well and truly here, I can't stop admiring the beautiful pink blossom trees that appear to have popped up out of nowhere, everywhere! Okay, so admittedly it is still a bit nippy out there but the Spring season requires new outerwear and that must be in the form of a trench (of course). Now, if I had the money, which I don't, Burberry would be the only place to shop for a true trench. However, I have seen many solid rivals on the high street.

At first, I found myself in a bit of a pickle on the H&M website as there were so many trenches at different prices, yet they all kind of looked the same - some were sale and some were not - confusing to say the least. So I nipped into store on my lunch break to see them in the flesh. Heartbroken, after trying two stores, I was about to give up! The only sizes left were a 16 or an 18, when I would normally wear a 10. You know that feeling when you really really want something that you just try it on in desperate hope that it will look okay even though it's way too big or small? Well I did, and GASP, "it fits!" I waited a minute whilst I pondered the fact that maybe I have put on some serious weight, but soon enough I was at the till, trench in hand! Moral of the story, if it's too big try it anyway! For something like a trench, being over sized works in favour as it made it longer and more fluid in shape, I love how floaty it is too. I rolled back the sleeves as they were a little big but it looked great with the belt tied or just open and loose, the soft drapey fabric is perfect! You can shop my coat here and my shoes here. The shoes are so comfortable, as I'm pretty tall the heel height is just high enough to look good but without me feeling like the B.F.G! My dress and sunglasses are both from Topshop, and my watch is Michael Kors.

Hope you all have an EGGcellent Easter weekend and eat lots of chocolate!

P.s my mum took my photos, having never been able to take a straight photo in her life (sorry mum) how good did she do! x

    I actually dont have a trench coat, mainly because I feel like it's a little too formal for my style. But this colour really suits you!!
