Back in January, I bought myself a puffa jacket from Zara, purely because it would not stop snowing, and my usual collection of non-waterproof wool coats just weren’t cutting it in that kind of weather.
A puffa jacket, people.
I bought a freaking PUFFA JACKET.
And I was like, “OK, I have a new baby and an endless winter to get through: I guess this is where I just give up on style, then?”
Yeah, Amber, it was.
Here’s the thing though: I absolutely LOVE that damn puffa jacket. And, I mean, at the time, I thought it would probably turn out to be a pretty bad investment, really, because it was the end of January at that point, and surely Spring would come soon, right?
Instead, winter just went on, and on and ON, and I wore the hell out of that puffa jacket. And, like I said, I love it. It’s warm. It’s snuggly. It’s waterproof. And, as of this week, it’s consigned to the back of the cupboard, because I’m declaring it to be trench coat weather. I mean, it’s not REALLY, obviously: in fact, it’s still pretty cold outside. But I have a large collection of trench coats, and I WILL wear them, so here’s the first trench coat of the new season – with many more to come.
I’ll, er, probably be moving the puffa jacket back to the front of the cupboard again just as soon as I finish writing this blog post, though. Well, I don’t want to tempt fate, do I?
