Musings: Save, Spend, Splurge – The Coat Edition

I am currently in Hong Kong, I have so many blog posts to catch up on but I wanted to do a quick fashion post. And with winter slowly seeping in, that urge to get a new coat is influenced by trends, bloggers and friends. When it comes to purchasing that *said* coat it really is a personal decision whether you want to save, splurge or spend. I always feel like you should have a mix of all in your wardrobe and build up a little collection (unless you prefer the minimalism route). I’ve compiled a few of my favourites below…


Canada Goose coats are immediately recognisable, not only from their logo but their quality and fit too. Perfect for snow, skiing or those colder climates (like Canada, duh), these coats will be a solid staple on your life for years to come.

You can find kids Canada Goose coats for the younger ones in your life too. 


I always feel like you should spend a little more on an everyday coat in a classic style such as a pea coat, trench or double-breasted. These look great over a work-wear or a casual outfit and its worth spending a little more so they last.


Saving on a going out coat makes sense as how often do we actually go out? A couple times throughout the party season? That way if you save a little bit you can spend more on treating yourself through the January blues. For a going out coat, I’d highly suggest faux fur or embellishment which can lift a plain outfit to new dimensions.

What will you be wearing this season?

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
