MY HERO PIECE FOR TRANS-SEASONAL WEATHER

Trans-seasonal dressing. Usually that phrase would fill me with complete and utter dread because omg summer's over but actually, ever since the Sun was clearly banished by Dynamo/Derren Brown/some kinda magician, I've been so ready for the cooler months. I mean, preferably don't rain on me when I've just done my hair, weather, but you know, you can get a little bit cooler if you want.

To me, the transition between summer and autumn screams layers and man I love layers, because it allows you to either go hard or go home with lots of statement pieces, or to focus on one individual item with lots of comfortable but cool basics alongside it, and that's exactly what I've done with today's outfit. 

The Matalan Red Puffa Jacket, it was love at first stalk online and the love affair only continued even stronger when I got my hands on it in real life. The colour is not only the sassiest bright red, but it's honestly the most ridiculously comfortable coat I've ever worn.

There is much more coat fangirling to come but why don't you have a little fangirl of your own first because isn't she a beaut?!
So yeah, let's just sit down for a minute and take a moment...

to discuss...

how frickin amazing this jacket is?! [insert can't cope/heart eye'd emoji's here].

Seriously though, I fell in love with this jacket on the model but wasn't quite sure I was going to be able to pull it off (I mean, I might not pull it off), it's very bright, it's bold, it's quite an athletic/tomboy style but omg I'm obsessed. For starters - get ready for Grandma comment of the century - it is genuinely the warmest coat I own (yes I know I'm so old stop judging me) but it is. The cosy puffa style means it's so ridiculously comfy and as I said, keeps you warm when it's cold but isn't too hot when it's warmer too (which is why it's perfect for the trans-seasonal weather).

I imagine my love for this jacket is similar to how Kanye feels about Kanye but in all honesty, since I got it I've worn it every single day as it's surprisingly versatile. The perfect jacket to pop over a casual jeans and tee combo but looks equally cute with a nice tea dress and boots. For me, this is my absolute hero piece as we transition into the cooler months so I really hope you like it too because you're about to see it popping up everywhere ;)
Because in London you never quite know how to dress for the weather - yay for being caught out on a daily basis - I always find lots of layers best so you can just whip them on and off depending on how you're feeling. This "The Future is Female" tee is without doubt one of my favourite things in my wardrobe right now. Because yes it's comfortable and has a great fit but mostly because LOOK AT HOW SASSY IT IS!!!! There's definitely an inner feminist in me so it just gives me all the positive, "we got this", girl power vibes and I am all about that life.

I also opted for some Vans-esque trainers which I bloody love for running around in town all day because they are so comfy but also look cool (and I am not cool so every little helps guys!). They go with everything meaning you can wear them all year round and I'm prettttty sure they cost around £10 which is an absolute bargain. Thank me later gal pals, thank me later.

Finally I finished off with my new favourite jeans/jeggings. They're high waisted which is an absolute essential for me because I eat all the food at all the times and high waisted jeans are oh so good for any fellow beasts foodies. They're super tight but also super stretchy (in case you couldn't tell, comfort is very key in my life) and really nip you in at all the right places. Something I can always get on board with!
So now you've all seen the jacket of dreams and the t-shirt that every female in the world needs, it's time to tell you about a pretty snazzy little deal Matalan have got going on. From August 25th - 29th, there will be some pretty incredible offers in the Limited Now or Never Deals. With huge discounts across fashion and home, the deals are only available on those selected dates in store and online, and the best news of all is that my babe of a puffa is only £20 in the deal so make sure you don't miss out on it. You can find out more details at www.matalan.co.uk but basically, keep your eyes peeled for some major bargains!

And that wraps up my trans-seasonal dressing, puffa jacket fangirling post. I would absolutely love to know what you think of it, is it something you'd ever go for? What's your go to this Summer/Autumn period? I always love reading your comments (mostly with a cuppa and a biggest and a massive smile on my face).

As always, thanks so much for reading!

  3. Okay first off, you defffffinitely pull it off - it looks amazing on you! And secondly, it is a seriously glorious jacket. I mean I'm not sure if I could pull it off but I might have to give it a go. LOVE the tee too. The Matalan near me never seems to have any of the good stuff I see on other people so I've got my fingers crossed we might get some of these bits in! xxx

  8. I'm so surprised this jacket is warm! I love the bold colour and it looks awesome and usually when I like coats or jackets they end up being impractical or cold but I'm like yolo it looks cute let's wear it anyway and then regret it after I've been outside for more than 10 minutes, haha.

  11. I love your outfit. For starters is comfortable, the shoes are amazing as well as the shirt since of course the future is female (Yasss to sassy comments) and I wouldn't normally like the coat but I have growned on them since that kind of coat is warm and I concluded that it looks amazing and you're the proof!

  12. randomly, i have always hated the colour red (except bright red lipstick, obvs #sassyaf), like i hate all clothing / homeware etc if it's red.

    BUT I FUCKING LOVE THIS JACKET.

    maybe i just love you in this jacket.

    but by god, you look tremendous.
