Winter Warmer Essentials

In Winter, I think there are 3 essentials you need for staying warm and snug. Boots, Coat and a Snood/Scarf. I have had my Winter boots for a while, my black quilted ones from F&F at Tesco. But as for a coat and snood? Well, I never really got round to it until now! 

This gorgeous coat is from OASAP (sold out but similar HERE) and I am in love with it! I normally go for black coats however, Warren encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and go for the camel and I am so glad I did! I think with the lighter colour you can really see all the lovely detailing; big buttons, big collar, and A-line shape. It will also work really well for the Spring and maybe some chillier summer evenings.

I love the longer A-line shape of it, again, not my usual style but I think it is very elegant, pretty and flattering. I normally go for shorter coats as I am quite short and worry longer coats will swamp me and not help the situation, but I really like how this looks with skinny jeans and heels or flats. The belt means I can really pull it in to give a gorgeous silhouette and emphasise my waist so I don't look bigger than I am. 

The big collar is a great feature of the coat and feels luxurious. The quality of this coat and material adding to the luxury feel so it is a brilliant price, you would pay much more for coats like this on the high street! OASAP currently have 20% at the moment with the code New-year and have some lovely coats in the sale, with up to 50% off! So go and see what you can find :)

My lovely snood is from Britfash is a new online store which brings the best of British Fashion together in one place. They have a selection of womens and menswear from handpicked British brands which include Stone Union, Risk Couture, QED London, Zuppe and Espace. To see the full range of brands go here. I love how they are supporting emerging british talent in the fashion industry and appeal to both men and women. They have some gorgeous items on their site, I am lusting over this Helene Tank Top in the pink. Perfect colour for Spring and I love the little details of the studs, it just adds something a bit different from all the other tanks you can pick up. It's currently in their sale as well, bargain! 

This snood is from the brand Xcessories and is a gorgeous weave knit snood. It is big and fluffy to keep you warm but also soft and not itchy like some snoods I have had in the past. I chose the black as it will go with everything, day or night, casual or dressy! I have been wearing this everyday and now of course, have my eye on the leopard print one! These can also be machine washed which is great when you have a teething, dribbling toddler in your arms most of the time ;)

Do you prefer snoods or scarves? What do you think of the longer coat on me?
