Fool In The Rain

I don't know about you, but I really struggle with casual, rainy day outfits and outfits to go for Sunday morning walks in. Any excuse, even going to the shops, is an excuse for me to over dress haha! So when it comes to needing something comfortable and practical yet still glamorous, I end up stumped! Which is why, when plus size retailer Topsy Curvy so kindly offered to send me on of their gorgeous swing dresses, I was elated. 
 

Swing Dress - Topsy Curvy, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Wellies - TReds.
 
This swing dress really is the perfect casual, rainy day/Sunday morning walk item! It's super easy to wear and comfortable, but also still fabulous without being OTT! The material of the tunic is super soft and quite thin so on an extra cold day, I would recommend adding a little strap top underneath, just to make sure you're nice and cosy! The material of the arms is faux leather look and is super comfy and super stretchy, so can easily be worn over something or under something! I love the fact I can just throw this on with some leggings, a statement pair of wellies and some lipstick and a rainy day/Sunday morning walk is instantly more glam!
As well as casual items like this, I also struggle with finding cute and also practical outerwear! Something that will keep me dry if i were to get caught in a shower but also warm to wear out on a frosty day! In all honesty, I had given up looking for an item like this until one day I simply stumbled across this absolutely glorious find! 
 

Coat - eBay (originally ASOS Curve), Beanie - Handknitted (by a family friend).
 
Oh this coat, THIS COAT! It is waterproof, warm AND CUTE! I am genuinely blown away by how in love with this I am! It makes me feel like Paddington Bear going on an adventure! I found this on eBay but it was originally from ASOS Curve, however, I 100% had never seen it on their website. Maybe it was an item they decided not to sell?  I'm not sure. But a wonderful lady is selling it on eBay in a variety of sizes and i cannot recommend it enough to all of you! Get this coat and wear it as a beacon to prove practical does not always have to mean boring!
 
Lots Of Love,
