Looking for the perfect winter coat


I have been looking for the perfect coat that ticks all these boxes: warm, comfortable, casual, everyday; a winter coat, that looks good and is water resistant to walk my beautiful boy Mr. B. in the park. A coat that will get me through the winter and be my work horse day in day out.

Khaki and navy Centigrade coats

I have always loved the parka look but sometimes it’s a little baggy and scruffy-looking for me. I have a few at home with a glam or chic twist that I love, and then I spotted this during a Centigrade Parka show with Glen Campbell, one of our fashion guests.

I took the plunge and ordered it in both colours and I simply love it I put these Emu Paterson Hi boots with it too in black.

Keep warm and safe.

Happy shopping Jill X

    Dear Jill

    I don’t know if you bother reading these; here’s hoping. I’ve not seen you on tv recently & do hope you are well.
    A picture of your doggy would have been a lovely addition to this page, perhaps next time? I really hope that one day soon we’ll have a pic of him reunited with Scruncher.

    Hi Jill, just read your blog and was wondering if you can help me. I also like this parka, but the reviews seem to point to sizing issues. I am a high street size 10/12. With your experience of wearing the parka which size do you think would fit me best?

    Kind regards

    Hi Karen
    Sorry for the delay in replying but I have been on holiday.
    I wear the small and can draw it in smaller at the waist with the detail at the side. I am a size 8 and it’s not fitted. If you are more a size 12 go for the Medium or more a 10 try the small. I hope that helps.
    Lots of love

    Dear Clare
    Thankyou for your message. Hope you are well. You haven’t seen me on air as I have been on a well deserved holiday. Unfortunately after what happened to my beautiful boy Scruncher who is missed every moment of everyday I keep my private life out of social media for safety and security. Thankyou for your wishes
    Lots of love
