FASHION || Second Star to the Right & Straight On…

My mum gets forever frustrated with my refusal to wear a coat. During early spring and summer months the most I’ll wear is a cardigan and I’ll carry that through into even the latest of Autumn months. The truth is, I hate feeling restricted and I also appear to have the bodily thermostat of an extremely menopausal woman.

Its only been the past month really that I’ve admitted defeat to the cold weather and begun to wear coats on a daily basis, because quite frankly, its bloody freezing. I feel as though I’ve had this coat which was sent to me by Bon Marche hanging in my wardrobe forever just waiting for it to be cold enough to truly be appreciated.

I fell in love with this Peter Pan Collar coat as soon as I saw the picture of it on Twitter, I didn’t even know who the company was, I just saw the teal colour and angels sang to me. Last year I ummed and ahhed over the perfect teal coat, and once I came to buy it, it had sold out. I wouldn’t normally think about looking in Bon Marche, but the cut, the buttons, the Peter Pan collar, the colour of this coat all added up to me to my perfect pretty and feminine statement coat.

Because of the name of this coat, I actually nicknamed it my Peter Pan coat.  To be a whimsical #fblogger I decided I’d Google for quotes for the title of this post and came across these quotes which I’d forgotten about loving, so I’ll leave you with them…

“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” 
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” 
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
