Hi all, hope you are well! Temperatures have dropped over the past week and snow has officially hit the north east, which means only one thing! It's cold enough for me to start wearing my winter coat. I'm a big fan of outerwear and when i saw this black faux fur number on River Island website last November, I had to buy it. You can never have too many coats right?

When it comes to choosing a coat i don't really have any rules. I know that practicality is something that should be top of the list but i have a practical jacket from Barbour that serves it purpose when needed. There isn't really a brand or style that I favour when shopping for coats, most of them come from ASOS, new look, a few from M&S. 

The one thing I love about this coat, apart form the colour, is that its reversible; yes i got two coats for the price of one. The deep pockets mean i cant fit my phone and cardholder in them without loosing anything. The high collar and its long length makes it a very cosy coat that keeps me warm. It  also really reminds me of a modern take on the beloved jacket worn by Del Boy, which by the way i loved! 

Who knows as the plus size industry start to expand its size range I may be able to make that big investment and buy the two coat on my wish list, a classic Burberry trench or mac and an Acne Studios leather jacket, but until then this coat will do me just fine.
