An interlude from my travel posts, to show variations of what I’ve been wearing currently. This H&M man’s khaki cotton parka has been incredibly useful, also here,and here. It feels great to wear – I love it! It has a trillion pockets which a woman’s version would rarely match, so it’s what I grab for the school runs and dashing around town.Layered underneath is a Gap man’s grey cotton jumper from the Summer Sale (also a dark grey and navy versions). I’ve had to replace all my wool jumpers and the cotton ones like these are so very soft and slouchy enough on my frame. The M&S jeans are straight leg and fading nicely but I don’t feel the need to distress them.The scarf was from Gap kids about 3 winters ago in their final sale in store. I adore the colours and even though it has holes in it already, I still wear it 🙂 My ankle boots are vintage Bally and was the start of my obssession with a mannish slant to my outfits.
Here with a blue J Crew pea coat and Gap skinnies, same accessories. I love and wore this pea coat so much since I got it last year, the button fell off. This is pretty much the perfect length and I wanted a black one eversince but it’s been impossible to find. I don’t often wear skinnies for the simple reason my weight flunctuates annoyingly and I simply cannot get them on when the mood for skinnies strikes! Well, as I vowed during the Summer holidays, I joined my local swimming pool or baths as the beautiful Vix refers to them. The jeans are only 2 years old and I know they weren’t as tight then! I really don’t do tight clothes as you may have noticed 🙂
Thanks for reading!
