Balmain x H&M coat / New Look jeans*/ UNIF hat / Topshop boots

I still don't know whether I can pull off a shaggy fur coat but there's just no denying that there's nothing better than wrapping yourself up in one in this current weather. I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to the cold (also born out of the instinct to avoid falling ill as it seems to happen to me a highly unsatisfactory number of times during the winter) and no type of 'fashion' outerwear (excluding actual practical puffer jackets that more or less make me look like the Michelin man) does it for me unless it's furry or fur-lined. I thought this Balmain x H&M one was perfect to add to my collection, it's almost black but not quite with green poking through and I thought that made it unique and interesting without it being too OTT. Also I love that it comes with a belt to help define and break up the boxy silhouette. Today I've let the coat do all the talking and paired it with all black but I'm trying to think of other ways to style it too. Perhaps it would look cute over a floral dress. Are you a fur coat type of gal and if so how have you been styling yours?

Speaking of the cold, I'm currently struggling to plan my London Fashion Week outfits as I have to keep in mind that I'll be out all day and need to keep relatively warm yet I still want to look cute? I think by the time this post goes live, I'll be at LFW so we'll see if I'm able to succeed in both aspects!
