me and the sailor coat (or...why twitter is my new best friend)

hello there!  I hope you are all feeling fine and managing to keep your feet warm.  I have to admit, I'm happily piling on the layers over here in "50degrees-is-the-new-20degrees" land! I think I forget what cold really is until I go to the UK or New York in mid-January. And that's when it all comes back to me... still, here I sit, piling on my layers at the slightest hint of winter in the air.

Which brings me, I think, to the tale of topshop sailor coat...

I, like many of us out there in internet-world, had been lusting after this coat since I first saw it on bloggers like elinkin and the cherryblossom girl last year.  Apparently, even alexa chung has one (I missed that fact until just now). Anyhow, by the time I'd resolved to buy one they were seriously sold out. So I (reluctantly) let it go.

That is, until last month... when, by mere chance, I noticed a tweet from miss Anja of clever nettle saying she was ready to find her topshop sailor coat a new home because she did wear it enough. When I saw it was my size I jumped at the chance.  And that pretty much brings us up to speed! I had been counting down the days until the weather got cool enough to let it out of my closet and I have been hard pressed not to wear it everywhere now that it's chillier. This is how I wore it over the very gray and cloudy weekend...
 outfit details...
