Adventures With The Eskimo Coat

It was a cold and windy night in January and this little one woke up very early from her afternoon nap. I looked at the clock – 3.30pm til bedtime seems like a long time. So we bundled in the car and headed to the seafront, to watch the waves as the sun goes down. Emma loves a little adventure and was giddy with excitement in the back of the car. As I parked up at the seafront, managing to parallel park into a tiny space against all odds – I realised I had forgotten to bring Emma’s coat.

So I had two options: admit defeat and just head home, facing a frustrated tantrum. Or, we could zip up her hoodie and peg it down the seafront to East Street, where there are a few shops. So off we went and Emma found the bumpy ride in the buggy hilarious – the thrill-seeker she is. I raced around and finally stopped at Baby Gap to see if there was something in there. Thankfully there was a big post-Christmas sale in there, as frankly I tend to avoid this shop for fear I buy everything in the toddler section! And we stumbled across the only coat in Emma’s size – we quickly tried it on, it fits! Hooray, sold to the toddler in the corner eyeing up the teddy bears.

Since then, Emma’s coat has become a bit of a talking point and several of my friends have said they’d like one in their size. It has a brilliant hood, which is so big that it fits over her beanie; essential as you may have seen on my Instagram photos, Emma and the beanie are so often found together. It’s a really warm duck down coat and covers her bum too, which has helped in this cold weather. In short, we love it and I thought I’d share a few photos of the adventures we’ve had so far in the eskimo coat.

    Oh my I love that coat! My daughter used to have a lovely winter coat with a fur hood when she was a toddler, and I sometimes wish it still fitted her. x
    Love that close-up picture of her face surrounded by fur 🙂
