For Rainy Days | Parka Coats & Cosy Knits

Thursday, 24 October 2013

Good morning bloggers! First off, I'd just like to say I'm well aware of missing a post last night, after promising I'd do one every day this week - the majority of yesterday was spent trying to complete a damn assessment for Sociology, so I never got round to much of anything else. But, I've decided to bring something out early today to make up for it! Today's outfit of the day is something weather appropriate for the oncoming winter season, and centres around the beautiful midnight blue parka coat I bought recently for £35. For about 2 or 3 years now, I've never owned a proper waterproof jacket, and as you would imagine, have always been a bit stuck on rainy days. I substituted decent jackets with hoods for dodgy umbrellas that would turn inside out to the slightest gush of wind, and let my big beautiful faux fur coat suffer from the unexpected down-pours and subsequent dampness. So until last month, once I'd finalised that I'd had enough of this same old troublesome fashion struggle every year, I ventured down to the high street shops in search of a gorgeous parka coat, just as Autumn arrives. And, of course, no Autumn/Winter wardrobe is complete without a bit of knitwear. Being well prepared for whatever the weather wants to throw at me is a nice change from the norm!

What do you all think of today's outfit? Have you bought your winter coat yet?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

P.S - Sorry about my head being cut off in these photos - it was one of those "I'm not wearing make-up and don't intend to" days!
