I officially have coat fatigue, which obviously isn’t a real medical condition, but certainly feels like one. There is something about putting the same coat on every day that can be a little depressing come mid winter.
I’ve been looking for something a bit more lightweight (that I can layer up for now), that won’t feel too warm and woolly come the spring. If it seems a bit of a funny time to be buying a coat, don’t kid yourself. You’ll be wearing one til at least April.

These are my favourites…
