I have been wanting the perfect parka coat for months, but I hadn’t been able to find one that I thought was just right. I needed a parka coat that was really warm and comfortable, but not too bulky at the same time. I found this gorgeous one by Warehouse when I was looking on ASOS and it’s absolutely perfect! The colour is just right for winter, it has a faux fur and quilted lining, a faux fur hood trim, lots of pockets and drawstrings at the waist so you don’t have to look too boxy. It’s definitely a great coat and it’s actually on sale right now on ASOS, so you can get a great deal on it if you want it (link under main image). It does run quite big though. I took a size UK 6 in it, when I’m usually an 8. The reason for this was because they had sold out of the 8 and I was hoping the size down would work, thankfully it did.
I decided to pair my new parka coat with my Koral Los Angeles Merlot skinny jeans and a Topshop leopard print scarf. I love the colour of khaki with burgundy and I think the leopard just adds a little element of fun to the overall outfit. To keep things neutral though, I wore my Zara brown cable knit jumper and my ASH Bowie wedge trainers in Stone. It’s definitely a casual outfit, but it’s really comfortable and it kept the chill out perfectly! I did wear this outfit around town yesterday when I met up with my boyfriend to have some lunch. I also bumped into my old cow statue friend and this time he was dressed up as Santa, so I had to take a photo, ha ha. You can see that at the bottom of this post.
I did also want to update you on a couple of things as well, I am going to be posting a photo set of my mum in my next blog post! I was challenged by Marks & Spencers to style my mum for her Christmas party, which I have done, so I hope you will like those photos next! Also, if you love parka coats too and want to buy one, I made a post on 10 great women’s parka coats and also 10 stylish men’s parka coats on my other blog. Plus, with the 50% off sale at ASOS (where I chose them from), you can get a great deal! Anyway, what do you think of the outfit? Do you like it? Comment and let me know!
