Outfit post: A Winter Coat

Hey fashion lovers! How is the cold treating you? The weather has been painfully cold here in the last few days. It has been so hard getting out of the house in the morning run. But thanks to my amazing Helly Hensen coat, the school runs have been a lot warmer. This beautiful winter coat is made to withstand the chilly winter season and it does just that. I love the simple design and the camouflage colour is a beauty. This is now my favourite winter coat.

I like to have a few coats/jackets for the different seasons. For winter, I like my coats a little heavier to withstand the cold weather. Having hoods on a few are ideal, plus they usually need to be waterproof for when I have to be out and about in the rain. I like to spend a bit more on my outerwear because they have to be great quality to withstand the harsh weather conditions. And quality usually means more money, which I am happy to spend  as long as it is good value for money.

This Helly Hensen Svelbard Parka is good value for me. It is my second winter coat from the brand and I know their coats are top quality pieces that usually last for years.

OOTD: My Love for Backpacks

Since becoming a mother, my fashion life has taken a back seat as expected. I am unable to wear sky-high shoes when out and about with the twins. I only started going out with my handbags. In the early days, I used to share the baby bag with them. I couldn’t see the point in taking 2/3 bags out at the same time.

During those days, I began to appreciate backpacks and shoulder bags. The fact that I could pop everything I needed in a backpack and still have my hands free to push the buggy or grab a child felt amazing. These days, you can easily spot me with a backpack. I find them very comfy and handy to have around. So when the opportunity to feature a Zatchel bag landed on my doorstep, I knew the style I was going for instantly.

I went for the Belgrave Cream Backpack. I really like the design and colour. This beauty is handmade in England from the finest quality soft leather. I adore the quick open clasp concealed behind the buckle and two front pockets with magnetic closures. I think it is a cute and stylish backpack.

The green top is also a new wardrobe  addition. I got it in the sale some weeks ago. It has been worn a few times now because I find it dead comfy and easy to layer with a blazer.

I am still in the process of sorting out my autumn/winter wardrobe. I am hoping to finish up this week. So look out for loads of autumn/winter outfit posts. I have a few lined up already.
