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!
