BLOGTOBER #27: Autumnal Staple Pieces

This is just a quick little post about one of my favourite items of clothing this Autumn.

It is of course the TEDDY COAT.

I’ve bought 3 new ones this year and I thought I’d show you how I’ve worn them.

However, I have just realised that I use the same bag in every photo and I can’t find the link to it. I’ll make sure to link a similar bag instead!

 —- I post all of my outfit picture over on my Instagram! —–

 

Coat #1

When I initially bought this coat, I thought it was going to be a lovely cream colour. But, when it arrived it was a very pale pink. I wasn’t going to keep it at first, but as soon as I tried it on and saw how stunning it was, it was a keeper.

This coat is called the ‘ASOS DESIGN Petite cocoon coat in texture‘. I’m 5’2 and shop in petite sections a lot. I sized up in the coat though, to a size 12 because I knew when it got colder that I’d wear hoodies and sweatshirts under it.

 

Here’s a list of everything I’ve paired it with:

ASOS DESIGN Farleigh high waist slim mom jeans in Washed Black – Size W28 L30

ASOS DESIGN Petite ultimate crew neck t-shirt in white – I sized up to a 12

The bag isn’t on the Topshop website anymore but here is something similar – Sela Snake Print Cross Body Bag

adidas Falcon Triple White – Size 4.5

 

Coat #2

This coat actually caught me by surprise. I had just ordered a bouclé coat from Topshop in the same colour as this for something like £85. The day it got delivered I walked into Tesco and saw the exact same coat, the one I’m wearing, for £50 cheaper. It was a bargain for £35!

 

I decided to buy this one in an 8 and send the Topshop one back.

Tesco are doing a great range of coats there at the minute and every time I go in I make sure to check their Autumn range to see if there’s anything else that I like.

The only downside to this coat is the fact that it isn’t lined. This means that the coat is lighter that usual but it still keeps you warm.

I can only link the jeans in this photo as the rest of the items are last season/out of stock.

Coat #3 – My Fave!

I first saw this coat when I bought the last one, in Tesco. I thought to myself ‘I can’t really buy 2 coats at the one time’. My boyfriend also told me that I didn’t need another coat. So, I waited.

I waited until I was with my Mum because I knew how much she would appreciate my other coat choice.

I saw so many influencers wearing this colour coat and I knew that this was the perfect option for me to be able to wear the same kind of thing, but for half the price. (This coat was £35 also).

 

I bought this coat in a size 8 and here’s what I wore it with:

T-shirt is old Topshop but here is something similar – Never Alone UFO T-Shirt by Tee & Cake – I sized up to a 12 (I like my t-shirts oversized)

Bleach Raw Hem Straight Leg Jeans – Size W28 L30

adidas Falcon Triple White – Size 4.5

Unfortunately, I can’t link either of the F & F Tesco coats as they don’t sell them online. But, if you go into store I’m sure you’ll find them easy enough!

What I’ve learnt from this post is to always have a quick check around superstores’ clothing area because you never know what you might find!

Thank  you for reading and I hope you enjoyed.

A new post will be up tomorrow,

Love you all X
