What I Wore: Pink Coat + Red Shoes

18 June 2018

Pink and Red

Hi everyone!

Are you a fan of pink? I’m not a huge fan.

I like blush/nude/dusty rose. But I’ve never worn very much “Baby Pink”, as I find it much too cute/pretty/feminine/Barbie/Hello Kitty… but hey look at me now!

I bought this coat from Zara when I was in London last year. It was on clearance sale (I think it was $50) and it was a size too big. Yes it was totally an unnecessary, impulse, holiday purchase!

It’s not really a coat, as it’s not lined. It’s shapeless and baggy. It’s more of a felt blanket with sleeves and buttons… but hey, it’s extra snuggly.

I thought I would regret the purchase, but it turns out I have been loving it!

I’ve found that it works with monochrome outfits, with an additional colour, such as a denim blue shirt, or in this case, bright red shoes.

I can’t seem to find anything online that’s similar.

Unless you count this lovely Helmet Lang Pink Coat, which is similar, but it’s a gazillion dollars and much more Barbie.

Or this ASOS Pink Wool Coat with a leopard print collar.

With pastel candy colours being on trend this season, I think a pink coat has been an awesome addition to my wardrobe.

I’m also wearing:

Heart Breaker Pumps from Shopbop (Red colour is sold out) I love these so much I want a pair in black!

Alexander Wang Roxy Hobo Handbag from Shopbop (also sold out) hopefully more stock will be coming in soon, as I waited for ages for it to be restocked twice!

Star Button Down Shirt, mine is a Korean brand, based on the original design of this Equipment shirt. But I’ve found that it’s cheaper to buy an Equipment shirt from Revolve (with free shipping) or secondhand from eBay.

Have a fantastic week!
