Which is actually no big deal for me really because I much prefer it a little colder anyway. I’m definitely more of a jumper and coat gal than anything else and there’s nothing worse than London humidity and hot rain showers. Gross.
You may remember my little post a while ago about finding your everyday festival style? Well, I’ve teamed up with Lighthouse again to share my winter must-have coat, affectionately known as Florence*.
Florence is a gem of a coat, to be honest. Casual and cosy, with a super soft lining and double zip (brilliant for those of you with ~*~thick~*~ thighs like mine), Florence is going to be my new best friend throughout the Durham winter (and spring, and summer, and autumn and winter again).
Don’t get me wrong, Durham is great and, as I say, I love the cold, but sometimes it’s just nice to walk around the city in a snuggly coat on your way to and from lectures/coffee with friends.
Finding a coat that you’re happy with and feel comfortable in can be a real struggle. If you have body confidence issues, like me, you’ll understand the need to find a coat that covers you in all the right places and makes you feel good as you walk around town. Lighthouse have smashed it with this one. It cuts me in the right place, fits like a glove, and is casual enough for day-to-day wear. Don’t get me wrong, I love my fancy camel coat, but there’s nothing like slinging something on that you know is comfy, casual, and 100% waterproof. Like, so waterproof. Like, tested in a London downpour and living the dream.
I can’t wait to throw it on and head into town for school, backpack slung over my back, ready to look like I’ve made zero effort with my appearance whereas actually I very carefully picked my outfit to make it look like that. It’s that kind of coat, and I love it! x
