I think I’ve literally been dreaming about my ideal winter ~ aesthetic ~ since mid-summer (thanks, Tumblr), and there’s always been one integral component: a coat. I don’t know how I’ve managed to live my winters without one, but my heart has been yearning for one and I feel like brands and I have definitely been on the same wavelength this season.

I’ve been doing a bit of online trolling and found a variety of coats (below) but trust me when I say, “but wait, there’s more.” I’m still holding out for my camel coat because I’ve been envisioning an outfit containing a black turtleneck, gold chain, light blue high-waisted denims, camel heels and a camel coat. Cav’ the vision? Anyway, if you, like me, are dreaming of a camel coat, you can find one in Cotton On for R799 or Adriaan Kuiters + Jody Paulsen’s new store on 73 Kloof Str. in Cape Town for R1680 (and Woolworths, too).

I tried to find a variety of trendy coats for a range of prices (word to the student budget) and the coat I’m wearing in this post is actually number 3 from Mr Price.

All About That Coat
More to my outfit – this is what I wore to the Punk & Ivy x LEGiT event that I blogged about here. I had recently gotten my weave did (big mistake in hindsight – this Cape Town rain and wind is unforgiving) and my bun was so big because it was full of secrets. I also had to brave the cold with that little crop top-jeans gap that is so deadly in winter! But my coat had me covered and I’d been utilising my winter survival trick (Woolworths thermal leggings under your jeans – much warmer than stockings) so I was all good.
I have two more exams this week and then I’m finally back to Joburg and then Nigeria for this vac! If you’re still writing, may the odds be ever in your favour ❤️
