What I Wore: Winter Walks**

22 Oct 2015

UK based plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel wears a stunning "greige" coat with vintage inspired pieces in this outfit post, sponsored by Bon Prix.

It is getting COLD out there, isn't it?! Time to drag out and dust off the coat collection, and obviously time to pick up a few new pieces! 

As I mentioned in this previous post I'm attempting a bit less black. It's going pretty well so far, especially for this outfit! How beautiful is the stone colour of this coat?! It's that perfect "greige" shade, and I love it! I love a good affordable piece, don't you?

Ooh, would you look at that side eye?! Haha! This coat has sort of a boyfriend style blazer feel. I love the details in the front, and the zip pockets make it feel a bit more sleek. It's fully lined, but still maintains a thin, comfortable feel which is perfect for layering up! 

I'm a big fan of this coat, which is unlike any I've purchased before! I was a bit disappointed that even though this is a size 24 (I'm a size 22/24 depending on cut/shape/desired fit/etc.) I could barely fasten the button front. When I finally got it buttoned, it didn't look very pretty to be honest. However, I raaaaarely button or zip my outerwear so this isn't a major issue for me at all. I'm really impressed with the quality for the price. The website has an impressive selection of affordable winter wear available, so be sure to check it out! 

For me, this look is all about making neutrals more interesting with textures! The dress is a deep v skater dress in a scuba material, the coat is a poly/viscose blend (machine washable!), faux fur scarf is duh, soft & furry, and the tights match all the black, but have a lovely lattice pattern! Top it all off with a big barrel roll in your hair and call it a day!
