Winter Pastel Trend: The Coat Of My Dreams

I'm really adoring the winter pastel trend at the moment, it gives a great pop of colour to my dowdy black clothing I've taken to wearing lately. I can mainly be found in a black pinafore dress, and a bright shirt with colour coordinated shoes.

After browsing the sales for a new coat (which I always end up buy two or three!), I failed to find something I fell in love with. I wanted to find a staple for my wardrobe but haven't fallen in love with anything, yet. Although I'm now eyeing up a few black biker coats for this autumn and next winter. 

I love Dorothy Perkins coats, I always seem to find the best ones in the sale here, like the burgundy and  black faux fur collared coat I'm often seen out and about in, which was a bargain at £30.00 a few years back.   I did manage to find a gorgeous blush coat, similar to my burgundy one, with a long faux fur collar. I fell in love with it. I was debating whether to buy it or not for a few days but the colour on the website looked a bit creamy nude, and I wasn't sure how long it would take to get dirty, especially with Dex's dirty mitts, so I avoided buying it online. Anyway, I thought if I found it in the store in Leeds Trinity I would have to buy it, it would be fate right? Well, it wasn't fate to buy it in the store as they didn't have it, phew, I managed to save myself £69.00 there. 

Until, I found it on the website, reduced to £48.30. What a bargain! I had to buy it at that price surely? Well, I also managed to find myself a nice £10.00 discount code too, which meant overall I paid £38.30 for the coat. Okay, so it was a real bargain

I picked it up in store last week, and oh my gosh, it's gorgeous. It's hardly like the colour on the website, and a true blush colour, which adds the perfect amount of winter pastel to my wardrobe. 


Yes, this truly is the coat of my dreams.
