FASHION | Gap Drop Shoulder Coat

Jumper | Uniqlo Men's (similar here)
Denim | Uniqlo
Boots | Topshop (similar here)
Necklace | RecocoNYC via Etsy

My new baby, opened up Christmas morning thanks to Father Christmas (actually that should be Mother Christmas...OK, I'll stop saying the 'C' word now the festive cheer is well and truly over.) It's the longer, light grey version of my GAP Drop Shoulder Short Coat which I've worn and worn and now the temperature's dropped I'm super glad this has arrived just in time to keep me toasty. The short coat has popper buttons, something I usually hate, but due to it's shorter, bomber jacket style I think they really work. However I hate them on longer coats and happily this has proper buttons (pet hate when shops charge loads for a coat without real ones!) I love the oversized shape and it's so cosy to wrap up in. It does look better with ankle grazing jeans and trainers but y'know, it's bloody cold. It's gonna be a great coat for Spring too (as we all know Spring is like Winter in the UK...)

Well I hope you're good and haven't fallen victim to this flu that's been going around! It's completely floored me so I've been spending a lot of time on pinterest...I've added a few new boards and had a bit of an Alexa stalking sesh if you wanna check those out for inspiration!

 Did you get any new things to wear? I'd love links to have a nosy!

  16. This is 100% my favourite type of outfit, you can't go wrong with black on black and the coat is stunning! It's such a pretty winter colour, and the boots are perfect - I really need some black Chelsea boots but I have zero money right now haha!
