NEW TO MY WARDROBE

A Walk in the Parka


First off, props to Manrepeller for todays post title, I couldn't think of a more appropriate title to plagiarise after picking up my new parka. It was a semi-forced purchase by the other half after feigning the "I can't run out for milk - it's raining and I don't own a coat with a hood" scenario one too many times. I was marched through New Look all the way to the coats section (I jest, but Josh did accompany me).  I picked the one with the furriest hood (always) and went for green over black - making a change to my usual attire. 

Complete with a million pockets, this has now become known as "The Dog Walker". With each of those million pockets containing a plastic bag, should it be needed... Yep, we all know I'm trying not to use the P word here. 

It's also incredibly warm and snuggly, allowing for the extra round of the park on a chilly day if our little miss decides she's not ready to go home just yet.

I think I currently have the winter coat collection down too - with a smart coat, a casual coat and a little something in the middle - all on the super warm side of things. There may even be a video in the pipeline on my coat collection - trust me, that one will be a long one (there's a reason I was given the ultimatum of "stop with the coats or move out").

  16. Hoods are the best, and the furriest the best! Kaki is such an easy colour, it goes with pretty much everything!

  27. oh hey Nick, you've been missed haha by the way I love how you styled the parka, I think sometimes it can look waaay too casual but you managed to make it look quite parisienne some way... maybe it's the striped top?

  40. I have to say Parkas come in super handy! I've had mine from Topshop for a good 2 years now, and it's still as good as new, and is fab for when the weather goes super cold and rainy!
