Whose bored of me talking about coats yet?
I wouldn’t blame you but a girl can never have too many coats and this was a very unintentional purchase but I guess that’s what sale shopping does to you! There was no way I was going to leave Zara without this camel number though, and for a mere £12.99 who can blame me.
I actually saw a girl trying this on during my first visit to Zara (yes, I went twice in one day) and admired how nice she looked in it whilst thinking it would be somewhere within the £40 – £60 region. When I went back the second time I thought I’d just try it, maybe it would be further reduced in the upcoming weeks, maybe it wouldn’t suit me, but as soon as I saw the price tag I didn’t really care if it suited me or not – I loved it and that’s all that matters. Plus, I was with a friend by this point and there’s nothing like a bit of peer pressure to spur you on!
I went for a very minimal, all black outfit here to really appreciate the beauty of the jacket. I don’t own anything like it but as always Zara wins with it’s timeless shapes and added unique twists, in this case the fluffy panel running along the bottom. It was inevitable that I would be drawn to this thanks to the fluff!
The camel colour itself isn’t one I’m not usually in to. If this were to be black or grey it would have probably fitted in with my personal style and current wardrobe a lot more but it’s always nice to have a bit of a change up and try something which may be just outside of your comfort zone when it comes to dressing.
The only downside for me is that they didn’t have any smalls left in store (and there was no way I was going to risk leaving it and trying online) so I opted for a medium and am channelling all of the oversized vibes, although truth be told I would rather it fitted a little more slimline.
Has anyone else bought any must haves in this years sales?
I hope you are all having a fab start to 2018, and any resolutions you’ve made are going well! Let me know what you think of this jacket, I think I might be a bit of a love it or hate it piece.
