Girls Pink Parka from Sainsbury’s Tu

It’s really cold outside and after looking through my daughters wardrobes I was horrified to see that they would need new winter coats very soon as their existing coats were getting a little short and worse for wear.  Not really a big deal I know but have you ever tried to part a fashionista with an item of clothing that she loves wearing?  Well if you haven’t just to give you a vague idea ‘All hell breaks loose!’.

With this daunting task ahead of me I decided to scour the internet for suitable coats that not only looked warm but looked like they would be accepted by little devils / angels who are not not quite in Prada just yet (thankfully).

I have in the past mentioned that you can find some great pieces from supermarkets and the next item I wanted to tell you all about is a lovely coat from Sainsbury’s Tu clothing range.

What do you think, is this a great looking coat?  My daughter thought so, she loves it!
