Coats for Winter 2014 - Pea Coat

I arrived back from my holiday on Thursday and I've been struggling to get back into real life ever since. We spent a week in Majorca with family and TOTALLY and UTTERLY had a brilliant time. We didn't do anything other than lie down and drink Cava! I took a week off from posting on Avenue 57, from blogging and I rarely touched Instagram. I took a week off from caring about getting dressed. There was certainly no need for heels or anything fancy. Each evening I showered, pinned my hair back, put on a hat and a dress/flip flops and went out. I didn't realise how useful a hat could be to cover up!



I've woken today to torrential rain and wind. This is the perfect time for me to be looking for my winter coat. I've wanted a pea coat for a long long time. Here is a summary of what I've found available today.

Super Dry via House of Fraser - £114.99


LK Bennet via John Lewis - was £295, now £110


Lands End - £59.95


ASOS - £55


Here I am in post holiday blues outfits trying to show off my tan before the weather turns:
Left (Friday) Mooching around doing 6 loads of washing
Right (Saturday) Ironing and then shopping with a friend


What coat style are you missing? I'm going to focus on the trench coat next as I don't have one of those.

  6. I tried on the superdry one and whilst it's not plastered in logo's it still is branded so a no no for me. Dare I say I quite like the lands end one.

    1. Oh that is so disappointing they've branded it but thank you for letting me know - saves a trip into town!
      I think it's a sign I'm getting old because I love a few bits on the Lands End website - YIKES!
