Autumn Walks and Winter Coats

There’s something so cosy about this time of year. It’s not necessarily cold but I still find myself reaching for my winter coat when going out for a walk. A big, comfy coat that leaves me feeling snug and warm. There’s no need for for scarves, hats or gloves yet, but that coat feels so good… like a big duvet wrapped around me.

Like me, the girls all feel the cold and always want to be warm, so it’s never an issue to get them to wear their winter coats. This year without realising it, we’ve all gone for similar ‘matching’ coats from one of our favourite brands Joules.

They’re all navy with a faux fur trimmed hood. Poppy, Iris and I have gone for padded/ puffa style coats, which are light and incredibly warm. While Lili’s is a classic parka style coat with a warm fleece lined hood.

Poppy’s padded coat has a nipped in waist, which gives it a good shape and fits her perfectly.

And Iris’ cute little star puffa coat is completely lined with fleece for added warmth, while still being super light.

I absolutely love my padded coat, it’s what I reach for every morning for the school run and at weekends for walks in the country or around the park.

I opted for navy as I thought it would make a change from my usual black and I liked the classic style of this coat.

However, it had to be navy coats for my big girls, who are only allowed to wear navy coats to school. I was shocked by this rule when Lili first started a few years ago but I’m now used it and if I’m honest it does make them all look very smart in the same colour.

I picked Iris’ coat without considering the colour, I was just completely taken-in by the cute silver stars and it’s gorgeous fluffiness! Perfect for any 18 month old girl.

For me these warm coats are the outdoor equivalent of a cosy blanket. With Halloween and Bonfire night coming up, I know what we’ll be wearing to keep warm.

    I loves these and you all look fab! I have just bought Sam and Flo their winter coats from Joules and they are so cute. My two have got to the stage where they go in the shop and want to try everything on and ask me to buy them stuff! Sam chose a t-shirt in there as well and is eyeing up a scarf 🙂 x

    They are gorgeous coats – they look very warm and snuggly. My youngest two hate wearing winter coats as they don’t really feel the cold so much, but I think these might be just the thing to convince them otherwise.

    Love these coats, especially Poppy’s. My eldest needs a new school coat and that one looks perfect.
    Yours looks crazy cosy! I had a similar Joules one but for some reason it didn’t have a hood. So pleased they’ve adapted the design and put a hood on it. Way more practical for our British winters! xx
