Always I seem to get to October and start shivering and suddenly there is nowt in the shops. I like a smartish woolish longish coat not with a belted waist (am a waistless gone-to-seed size 10). I tend to wear same coat for work and child activities which is a bit daft, maybe need two coats, ramble. Anyway, would be grateful for any links from you more competent shoppers....

I have bought a coat from Boden, but I will probably get a more dressy wool one as well.

This yuck weather just makes you think of autumn and the weather getting cold. TBH, I look foward to autumn just because at least them we can say it is autumn. How terrible is it to have to call this weather summer?!

I know what you mean, in a few months time all of the great coats will be gone and you will have little to choose buy now!
