What We Wear Wednesday: Second life


Lately, I've been drawn to using darker tones in my outfits (as can be seen here). Last Sunday was a major exception: I desperately wanted to wear my powder pink coat and decided to team it up with a white jumper. The main items of this outfit I've had laying around for ages. The Converses date back several years, although I never really worn them that much (I guess I bought them at that point where literally everybody was sporting these, which made me get sick of them). I bought the jumper already more than a year ago in the summer sales, but always tended to avoid wearing it. I have absolutely no idea why, I remember being on the lookout for a white jumper, buying it and ... having it occupying space in my closet. 

The coat however... Aaah, the coat. That's a completely different story. Let's jump in our time machine and head back to the winter of 2004-2005. I was 17 years old and after spotting this baby in a store, fell instantly in love. I wore if for two consecutive winters, which is a big deal as I live by the rule "One winter coat a year, keeps the winter blues away". When I was still in high school, I would wear this coat with pink boots and a pink skirt (Guess what my favorite color was!). A year later, all grown up in my first year of university, I'd tone it down a (little) bit, but would still get looks from people frowning upon such a Barbie coat. Nine years later (holy fuck, I'm old), a pink coat is all of a sudden no exception anymore. Things change, people change, life changes and fashion is just plain crazy. 

PS: Say "Hi!" to my home town!

  1. Mooie jas! Ik heb trouwens een ketting die heel erg lijkt op de jouwe (alleen zijn alle afzonderlijke kettinkjes ongeveer even lang), gemaakt door mijn moeder toen ze mijn leeftijd had. Alles komt terug he!

  3. Zalig dat je die jas nog gewoon in je kast had hangen! Zoals de oude van dagen zouden zeggen 'alles komt terug' :p Heel mooi met je zwarte & witte kledingstukken.

    Ik ben zo blij dat ik niet naar mijn mama luister als ze zegt dat ik kleren en vooral jassen moet weggooien :)
