The Ice Queen Coat

Coat – Matalan // Top – F&F // Jeans – Topshop

Before I blab on about my amazing new ‘ice queen’ coat, can we take a moment to be upset that summer is basically over? Personally, I’m not crazy about the fact that I’m shopping for coats (as much as I love to) and no longer having the inclination to eat salad because it’s warm. I’m not the biggest fan of summer, hay fever and bumble bees tend to damper the season, but I do like waking up to the bright sunshine rather than a dull English day.

My coat, which I bought in Matalan’s most recent sale for only £12.00, is a new season favourite for me. When it gets cold, I tend to gravitate towards darker colours without noticing. This bright blue pastel piece, which I have renamed “The Ice Queen Coat” really helps to brighten up my AW15 wardrobe and pushes me to wear much lighter colours. The name for this coat was lightly inspire by Jadis the White Witch due to the colour she wears in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. My top, which is slightly cropped, is also a new favourite of mine from the summer sale. It’s really easy to pair with just about everything and has a very subtle pattern to spruce up a look. It’s become my go-to tee for nearly every outfit, it’s just a shame a I didn’t buy two!
