The hunt for the hooded coat continues

Having discovered the practicalities of a hooded coat rather than trying to wrangle a buggy/suitcase/toddler and an umbrella, I have also realised just how hard they can be to find.

Unless you want a parka or padded coat, that is. I am not the kind of person who can get away with a parka or a padded coat…


But a faux fur hooded coat, currently on offer at New Look? Glam enough for evenings out, warm enough for the playground, why, it’s practically a travelling mum’s essential, right?

It might make me look like a muppet but I suspect that’s a look I can carry off…
