The dressing gown coat

Most mornings I would happily leave my front door still in pyjamas with my duvet hugged around my shoulders. At 7am and heading to school, I'm tired, cold and feel as though I could probably ignore the bemused commuters around me on the 141 bus. There's always that little part of my brain that stops me doing so of course. It's probably my subconscious saving future me from the sheer embarrassment I would face upon being awake enough to realise I willingly left the house sporting flannel trousers and a duvet for a cape. 

Still, the opportunity to be as comfortable (and warm) as if wearing pyjamas whilst retaining fashion kudos is not one I will ever pass up. And that my friends, is why I am so in love with the current trend for oversized, slouchy, wool coats that are belted at the waist. The dressing gown coat, as I call it. 

In particular, I've been getting pretty strong feelings towards this camel (since when have I liked camel, by the way?) wool coat by Mango. Suddenly my wardrobe feels incomplete without it.
