Ode to Spring | Checked Duster Coat and Floral Co-ords by George at Asda

Spring style: White check coat with floral top and leggings
banner
Hello, spring! I am so pleased it's March. I thought I'd celebrate with a full-on springtime outfit and share some gorgeous florals with a big smattering of fresh white checks today - all from George at Asda. I am very excited about this outfit, and I have to bow down to Asda for creating some truly swoon-worthy pieces that are on trend, very flattering and unbelievably affordable.

I will admit I chose the pieces blind (sort of) -  I was asked what I liked from their new range and from a few small thumbnails I mentioned I liked the white check duster coat from one image, and the floral scuba fabric top and coordinating scuba leggings from another. I was sent all three to review - not for one second did I think I'd wear them all together, but amazingly they worked so well as a complete outfit.

I haven't lived near an Asda for many years, so although I used to buy from George long ago I really haven't checked out what they have for ages (it hadn't occurred to me to go to their website). And not forgetting the grand total of the three pieces: Just £41 full price, but as the top and leggings are now on sale the total of this outfit is just £29! The value for money of this range is unbelievable - the quality is really, really good. I don't think you'd ever guess this was a supermarket range, nor that the whole outfit was such a low price.

By the way, if you've never tried scuba fabric trousers before (I hadn't), I can thoroughly recommend them for the comfiest trousers ever, after pyjamas of course...!

I can safely say I will definitely be shopping online at George from now on - are you a George at Asda shopper? How have you found their range? (And if you're overseas you might be pleased to know they do international delivery!)

  6. I like the coat. However, on anything I click and choose is not international delivery.

    1. Thanks Martina - but that's very odd, I checked the website myself and it says International Delivery at the top, plus the delivery details of each does say international from what I can see. Maybe contact @georgeatasda on Twitter if you're having problems...?

  7. I have been wanting to try something in scuba material! I was thinking a skirt, but leggings seem such a good idea now that you've shown these off! :o)

    1. Awww Josie what a wonderful comment, thank you so much!! I do try and mix it up a bit with (mostly) affordable high street bits and then just the odd investment piece. But I still don't buy designer - just the slightly more expensive high street brands (it's designer to me)!

  10. Wow, some serious bargains and impressive pattern combining! I'm always scared to do it myself but you make it look easy :-) I thought I was maybe over the print trouser but those leggings are fab!

  16. Wow! I love that coat. A little 80's, a little preppy, but it really works and it's a great cut. Well done George! I love how you've mixed all the prints and colours!

    1. Actually now you say it, it is a little 80s isn't it Rachel...?!! I think the duster coat shape is generally a very 80s shape. Thank you thank you xx
