A New Coat

I have finally gotten a new coat. I find coats hard to buy since they are never quite right, never just what I wanted. I'd say this one is though. I've been wearing an army surplus coat for like 4 years now, but it's bulky and annoying. It doesn't exactly scream stylish. I like the look though of combining my more girly looks with the harder edged coat.

I found this Antoni and Alison Coat in TKMaxx for the bargain price of £80. Its totally waterproof with sealed seams (which brought out the sewing technique geek in me) but it doesn't smell like a Barbour Jacket which I hate the smell of. I was made to wear a Barbour jacket when I was little and my dislike of them has stuck.

I got my jumper in TK as well and I made my skirt myself. It came out a little see-thought but with opaque tights I think it works. The skirt is a longer length than I usually wear, since midi lengths don't suit me, but I think this looks okay.
