A New Coat...

I know, I know, I said I wasn't going to buy one this year (except maybe a camel coat in the sales) but it was the biggest bargain ever and I didn't even buy it myself! It's a navy blue pea style coat from Mango and is going to be super useful as I don't have one, or any kind of navy coat for that matter, except for a very practical parka, but nothing as versatile as this, that can bridge the gap between smart and casual:

Double-Breasted Coat £39.99

I love the length and it's a really great price, even better in Spain, where Mr DF paid around £30 for it a couple of weeks ago! It will go with almost everything, but I love this classic combo of jeans and check scarf:

Coat - Mango (AW14)
Scarf - Zara (AW14)
Jeans - Maison Scotch (SS 13)
Boots - Office (AW12)

Have you found any fabulous coat bargains this year? If so, I would love to know about them, especially any discounted camel coats!

You may have noticed I haven't been around for the last couple of weeks - this wasn't intentional, but was kind of inevitable! I turned 40, so have been partying and celebrating and been generally spoilt by all my loved ones, plus a little trip to Barcelona, which was amazing! I have lots of outfit posts to share with you, or bore you with, in the coming days!
