I swear I thought our garage doors were red until I went to take these pictures and was forced to face the reality and see they are brown. Strange how you can see something almost everyday and not even know what it/they look like! But maybe the red of my bag and shoes is enough red for one blog post.
Usually in an outfit I feel like there's one item of clothing I want to focus on and talk about, yet here I'm not sure where to start. Because the bag is new, and the shirt is new, the coat isn't new but I don't think it's been on the blog and ditto to the gloves. So here's a list (who doesn't like lists!):
1. Short story first. Last year on one of my visits to London I forgot to take any hand-warming garments with me and the first thing to do when arrived at Victoria was to buy the cheapest pair of gloves I could find. And these are the lucky ones, but it turned out I was the lucky one because I've been wearing these so much and they are pretty neat!
2. When I arrived in Finland, most of my things were still in the UK and among those things were my winter coats. So this is a necessary coat I got, and I'm quite sure it was under £5. It's basically all you'd want a coat to be. Warm enough, but not too warm. Slightly oversized, still the right size. Big pockets. And I love the little breast pocket, embroidery detail and the buttons. I actually collect buttons and aren't golden anchor buttons rather perfect?
3. I got this shirt and bag from my mum's friend. A patterned, light knit, black and white shirt? Yes, please. And I've recently broken the zipper in my usual day-to-day bag and had been thinking about possibly getting a new one when I got this red one. If I had bought a bag myself, it would've been either black or brown because practicality, so I'm actually really keen on the fact that it's red. Very happy with that. And, although they aren't exactly the same shade, the bag kind of matches my red shoes!
What a novel.
