You know last week when I said about my winter coat? Well, of course, the temperature dropped and yesterday I reluctantly got out my North Face down coat. This coat has to be one of my best winter purchases in Sweden. It’s lovely and toasty-warm inside it. On the other hand, this year I made it until December before getting this coat out, and that is something of a victory.
What I Wore Wednesday
The outside of my What I Wore Wednesday outfit was said down coat. As I had a lunch date today with a former colleague who is something of a mentor to me, I went smart-casual today. I didn’t want to wear a skirt in case we walked a distance from the office to the restaurant, so my new Massimo Dutti navy blue coated jeans with a jacket seemed like a good option (MD refers to them as rubberized jeans, but they are far chicer looking than that suggests…).
I picked the jumper up at Oasis last week on special offer. I like that the patterned collar is detachable, so you can wear the jumper for very different looks.
You cannot see them in this photo, but the I’m wearing one of my favourite pairs of shoes again. These shoes are brilliant – nice and high but the chunky heel means I can easily walk in them. I’m always on the look-out for similar pairs (preferably in black) but I’m yet to find anything that matches these.
