Resisting the temptation to write this post in ALL CAPITALS BUT I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE I HAVE FOUND THE WINTER COAT OF MY DREAMS. Trust Toteme to come up with the goods here, and brand I have mentioned so many times before and always head to for inspiration. I impulse ordered this coat as soon as I saw it pop up onto the Toteme account. AND THEN in a miraculous turn of events Toteme emailed me and asked me if they could send one - after dying and going to heaven, I returned the one I bought and pinched myself at how lucky I am. So the one you see here has been gifted to me, but this is something I would (and did) spend my own money on. I mentioned I was after something short this year, and this one definitely will also tick the box of still being warm despite being shorter in the length. Needless (I hope) to say, this is faux fur, but is the most luxurious faux fur I have ever had and is so incredibly soft. I have been wearing it with lighter wash denim most for a slightly more transitional look (it looks amazing with all black too, but I am saving that for the depths of Winter). I love how boxy it is, and frankly quite unflattering, but looks great with straight legs jeans and other styles of trousers too. I met up with a friend on Sunday while wearing this and he described it perfectly as the sort of coat you don’t want to take off when you get home so you sit down on the sofa wearing it and before you know it’s 10pm and you’re still sat snuggling up in your coat. So basically it’s a dressing gown too, a two in one, if you will. I have a size Small here but I think XS would have been good for me too, so either stick to your normal size or go one size down.
