In love! My new wintercoat: tartan + candy pink ♥



I know right away if a piece of clothing will be worth my money, which is, if I will wear it often. It happens when I see a product that instantly gives me a certain feeling inside, one that makes me put the item in my shopping cart in a reflex-kind-of way. It can happen when I am in a store physically, walking past the shelves and racks, when my eye catches something so extraordinary and pleasant, that I know I must take it home immediately, if my wallet lets me. It can happen when I am shopping online, scrolling down the endless rows of clothing and accessories, until something passes by that makes my finger moves the hoover to the buy-button without hesitation.

So it happened for my brand new winter coat. I was on Zara.com, looking for a men's trench coat that would possibly please Mitchell (unsuccessful, but we found his winter coat somewhere else. Click here to see what he ended up with!), when I suddenly noticed this red tartan coat with its candy pink faux fur collar, glowing in the middle of all the other kaki, blue and black coats. It only took me three clicks to put it in my online shopping basket. My mom happened to be at our place that day, so I hastily said to her: "I am going to buy this coat for winter, do you agree?"

My mom did agree, and the other day I realized that she must like it very well, as the other day, when I was at the hairdresser's (my new hair won't be up on the blog until later, so unfortunately you'll have to deal with my straw-like, irregular colored hair for a little while longer) and she paid me a visit, she told me: "I was gonna say: what a nice coat is hanging there on the coat rack, but then I realized it is yours!"

I am so happy that I found this coat, as I grew very fond of it already! (As I recall) I've been wearing boring colored coats for my entire life (except for a very ugly neon green copy when I was nine years old, and an equally ugly neon pink one at age eleven), which meant that I always looked quite dull when outside, even though my clothes underneath it often weren't dull at all. How times will change from now on, now I can take on winter in style!
