Unruly dog: my own
I remember being clad in a denim jacket for the majority of my childhood. See the picture proof below. We’ll blame growing up in the 90s. However, plot twist, I didn’t imagine that at the age of 23, I’d be rocking a denim jacket again, well hopefully in a better way that my 3 old self did. I’ve been on the lookout for a winter coat for quite some time now. I have sent back three to ASOS over the past couple of months and I was all ready to abandon my search for the winter coat and just accept that I’ll be cold till April.
Me age three in double denim. Hey it was 1994 don’t be too harsh. 😉
However, I was browsing the Topshop website, like a sneaky Sandra (I’m supposed to be saving) and fell in love with this Borg denim jacket. For some reason, I could just really see myself wearing it. I did have to check my temperature to see if I was okay. But my style has changed massively over the past year and well I guess part of my new style is now a denim jacket. It’s lined with a fake wool material, meaning that it’s super warm and snuggly without looking too much like a coat.
You see when you’re petite, coat shopping is always a nightmare. I have a really petite top half in particular so I find that most of the time when I’m trying to shop for coats, I look like I’ve put on my Dad’s by accident. So I made sure I ordered this in the petite and it’s a size 8 for anyone who’s wondering, it also means I can wear jumpers underneath it and not look too much like the Michelin man. I have to say I am totally enjoying wearing this coat, it’s warm, it’s snug and most importantly I *think* I don’t look too much like a B*Witched member. Happy days.
So I am pretty happy with my new coat, I’m not sure if it will entirely keep me warm if we all of a sudden get arctic temperatures, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. Have you found a winter coat this year and if you are a fellow shortie where do you find best for petite clothes?
