Asos coat – Urban Outfitters sweater & dress – The Cambridge Company satchel – Isabel Marant sneakers
It’s fall, it’s cold – so a nice coat is a necessary staple in my wardrobe these days. There seriously was a time when I did not own a coat, I just used to wear several sweaters to keep myself warm. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking, it must have been one of those crazy teenage phases where I thought it was ultra cool to not wear a jacket. Ahh, the things you do when you’re young. Life’s so much easier and a whole lot warmer if you have a nice, cozy jacket when the temperatures drop below 10 degrees Celsius – remember that as the important fashion lesson of the day, kids! This one is very warm, I ordered it during the Asos sale last year but I have to admit it’s a size too big for my petite posture. In any case, I like it too much not to wear it – what do you think?

I’m pretty sure most women will know the feeling of standing in front of your well-filled closet, thinking: “I have nothing to wear!”. You look at your clothes and they all look boring or you can’t come up with a combination that you’d feel comfortable in – a situation I’ve been in many times already. The usual result? An exploded bedroom, and still no outfit. Oddly, one week later you can suddenly come up with a great outfit idea with those same, supposedly boring clothes. What’s up with that? I hadn’t worn this tartan blazer in a long time, but it suddenly looked awesome again paired with this long sweater. Important message of the day: don’t give up on your clothes just yet, they might look really good with something that’s hiding in the back of your closet.
