Say hi to a new member of my coat family, this light blue number is one of my purchases from Zara during my stay in Sydney. A thin coat is sufficient to keep me warm during the mild Australian winter days, so it has become my ultimate wardrobe staple.
Wearing: Zara coat, blouse and pants (similar here, here and here), 3.1 Phillip Lim mini satchel (with Mango chain), Sportsgirl heels (similar here), Michael Kors watch
The light blue colour works very well with monochrome outfits and the detailing of the coat is just beautiful. You’ll be seeing this one around on the blog, trust me. I love playing with contrasts in my outfits, so naturally I paired this ultra-feminine lace blouse with leather trousers.
Let’s not deny it, I was tired when I shot these pictures. Thank god there’s make up to fix up things a little, but the bags under my eyes unfortunately say it all. What doesn’t help either is that I seem to have completely lost my tan. Well hello pale skin, I haven’t seen you in a long time. A couple of days ago someone asked me why I still ride my bike when it’s this cold. I answered that Dutch people ride their bikes even when it’s minus 10 with snow. And it’s true, that’s what I did too. I guess it’s just what you’re used to and two years in Australia has definitely made me a softy when it comes to cold weather…
