going fur it!

I am a bit of a devil for buying coats at this time of year. After I bought the Zara boucle coat last week I promised myself I wouldn't but anymore coats this year. Anyway that particular promise lasted all of a couple of days. After another little trying on session in....yep....you guessed it, Zara again!

I didn't buy this at the time but it sowed the seed. I actually felt at the time that the collar was a little overwhelming and I couldn't really justify £79.99 on an item I may not get tons of wear out of. Alas I couldn't get the idea out of my head though and after a bit research (thanks to Sue again!) I fell for this one from ASOS.

Yet, I still hesitated. But  everything happens for a reason they say! As luck would have it this morning, what should pop into the inbox.....only a 25% discount off Autumn essentials. No more dithering from me.....it was promptly ordered! Thanks for the amazing service that is Premier it will be with me tomorrow. So if you have been eyeing up anything on ASOS I would hop on over to their website to see if it's reduced. This promotion ends on Thursday at 8am. 

I shall be reporting back on as to whether the ASOS jacket works any better than the Zara one did on me.

Back to today and what I wore to the office!

Topshop sweater, past season alternative here
M&S Limited Edition blouse, past season alternative here
Topshop Leigh jeans, here
Miss KG boots, past season alternative here

Now there definitely isn't any more room in the wardrobe to squeeze another coat!

I shall be back again later in the week.....ciao for now!


  1. where are your beige boots from please? Been looking for some like that for ages. Thanks, Jo

    1. Hi Jo, the boots are by Hudson. The style I'm wearing is Mirar which is discontinued I think. The Kiver is very similar and ASOS stock them xx

  2. Can't go wrong with a pop of fur.



    1. I fancy a bit of everyday glamour so I reckon faux fur is the way to go! xx

  3. Servus Michelle,
    I just wanted to thank you for your inspiring posts. I found your site in spring and since then I'm always coming back. My style is very similar to yours and I really like your outfit ideas.
    Greetings from Bavaria.

    1. Hi Caro! Thank you for such a lovely compliment! It's so lovely to hear that you are enjoying the blog....thank you so much for following! Michelle xx

  4. Thanks for the mention Michelle. How did the ASOS coat work out for you?

    1. You are welcome Sue! I've laid the idea of the fur coat to bed.....I just don't think I'll ever find the perfect one for me :o( The ASOS one went straight back....I felt like a yeti in it! xx
