A Pop of Red
I feel like I’ve waited months to wear this coat… er, probably because I HAVE waited months to wear it, now I come to think of it. I bought it back in May, thinking that, as it’s fairly lightweight, I’d get plenty of use out of it during our typically chilly British summer. Summer surprised us this year, though, and while I’m not complaining about that AT ALL, the warmer-than-average weather DID mess with my coat-wearing intentions somewhat.
Still, this week I’ve been making up for lost time. Like the leather jacket I featured a couple of weeks ago, the window of opportunity for wearing items like this is a very small one, but this week has been perfect (temperature-wise, at least), so I’ve been making the most of it before I have to resign the coat to the back of the closet again until spring.
The real star of the show here, however, is my red Pashli bag which – full disclosure – I own purely thanks to the generosity of my sponsors at Shopbop, because I’d never have been able to justify it on my own. I love it so much I’ve had to resist taking it to bed with me, though, and the bright red is a colour I know I’ll get tons of use out of (particularly given that I appear to be physically incapable of wearing black and white without adding a pop of red…), so you should probably expect to see a whole lot more of it. In fact, if I was in the habit of posting daily outfit shots, you’d have seen this exact combination of coat + bag several times in the past week alone, because I just can’t seem to stop myself. And that, my friends, is why I don’t post daily outfit photos. Well, that and the fact that I’m sometimes still in my workout gear at lunchtime… and I haven’t actually worked out yet.
