There could be more reason why we love something. Because it’s trendy, nostalgic, practical, unique, beautiful, or just makes you feel nice, strong, don’t give a sh*t, self-confident. Or anything what you wish. Of course if we adore something only because it’s trendy, our love probably will be fading pretty fast. But how can we know the difference?
And how on Earth do these things come to my mind? Well, I looked at these very pictures and it just happened. I’m not sure you see or feel the same, but I see myself kinda glowing here.
But not just this time. Or not just because of the lights. Actually every time when I wear this parka. There’s something in its color which goes incredibly well with my complexion. And this is the exact reason why I love it. Ok, it’s practical and really handy in London, but so as a thousand other coat. But still, I chose this one from the thousand. Because if feel so nice and good in it, because it makes me glow.
Not because it’s so trendy or I saw it on others which made me love it (it happens more than I would like to admit, bah). And that’s the exact reason I don’t see why would I get rid of it. If something ain’t broke…
The same goes with the tote which is 2 or 3 years old at this point. I love it, because it’s easy and summery. It can put me in summer mode. Ok, vintage everything is a pretty big thing now, but I’ve never met a simple tee or jeans which I didn’t like anyway. And these jeans, yeah, the classic 501’s, which I adore simply because of the fit, the faded blue color (which is totally fine on my bottom half :)) and the quality. Ok, I adore everything in them.
And finally the ballet flats. Classics , which go with everything (seriously, there’s not so much shoes which could say the same) and comfortable too. Plus they make me feel like I’m a ballerina. A rad street ballerina, but I’m fine with that. A ballerina is a ballerina, right?
My favorite outfit for a while I guess. Definitely worthy to wear it again (and again :)).

Do you see the same glowing? Or it’s just me? 🙂
