My First Puffer Jacket

Jacket & Culottes: Zara | Top: H&M | Chocker: New Look

 Trainers: Stan Smith – Adidas


Can you believe that up until now I’d never owned a puffer jacket? I’ve always admired them, only couldn’t take the step towards getting one. Just like everything done for the first time, it either has to be spontaneous or meticulously planned, also feeling right! The event leading up to me getting this jacket was more of the former, coupled with the pressing cold weather.

I’d gone into Zara to look into their winter coats, but of course one loses their motive when there’s a sale. I picked up a few ( 😉 ) items of clothing after which looking at the queue, it seemed rather unappealing. My usual resort is to try the attendants at the kids section (usually less busy). I proceeded towards the till, and whilst still on the escalator, this jacket suddenly caught my eye. It must have had a halo and stars glistening around it – I kid. What in the world whispered to me to have a closer look, I’m unsure. Whatever it was, I’m thankful haha! I tried it on (Unashamedly you bet, now covers face), it fitted perfectly. Hol’up, is this really a child’s coat? Did a mummy bring this here – for me? Without asking too many questions, I took it to the till, only cashing out £15.99. The attendant was really impressed for some reason. Lol!

You know what, I like it; it does it’s job. Spontaneous occasions birthing something valuable.  Will I check in to the kid’s section more often? I highly doubt it, ah. I actually am in search of another one (women’s wear, need I mention 😀 haha). Are there any you can recommend?

Do you have any golden pieces you’ve picked up on likewise spontaneous moments? Do share your stories below, would love to read them.


Be right Back,
