It's chilly outside: the duvet coat

The last few weeks lulled us into a false sense of Winter temperature security and as the mercury dropped over the weekend I was FROZEN as I walked into town for a spot of bargain hunting on Saturday. The section of my skinny-jean clad leg between the bottom of my coat and top of my knee high boot was in agony by the time I hit Starbucks. So after my caffeine recharge and gossip with the lovely Katherine I went searching for something prevent this Baltic experience occurring again.

Sipping this as I type...
I found the ultimate dream coat in Monsoon. It is literally a duvet. Stuffed with down and feathers it is the closest feeling to being in bed. Bliss. This may conjure up images of Michelin man styling but I think it still looks really feminine with a nipped in waist and super high collar which converts into a hood.

So when mr blogmebeautiful took me out for dinner that evening on went the duvet coat and whist he complained about being freezing as we went back into town I was toasty warm and super snug. It is so cozy that I'm sad when I have to take it off. This is love.

So happy in my duvet coat, which I've teamed with a belt to emphasis my waist

I know this post isn't strictly beauty related, but worth telling you all about, none the less.

My Monsoon coat is £120 but if you have bought a previous item from Monsoon recently you may have been given a cheeky 20% discount voucher which I used (and legitermized my purchase with). A red or white version is also available half price in store.


  1. love this coat, not sure it'd suit me though xx

    1. Zara also have some great versions in the sale which are a bit more slim line and without such a massive collar which might be worth a look x

  2. That coat is beautiful! I love it! And it suits you very well :) Hope you've had a nice weekend!
