Do you know those days when everything goes how you planned before? Yes, of course the contrary also could happen (and it happens more than we’d like it), but there’s no daylight without darkness or Jin without Yang, so I assume it’s only fair.
But it was truly my lucky day. I had nothing (important) to do and I couldn’t shake this burgundy bomber out of my head, so I thought I’d give it a try if it’s on sale, and maybe I would get lucky to get my notification email about the arrival of my previously ordered white booties, after I had returned them once.
I wore this outfit btw, and I think I went a bit wild compared to my standards, but hey, I need days and outfits like these, so a plaid coat, tan jumper and red suede boots it was. It was totally new and fresh experiment which payed the price off.
So the bomber in question. I didn’t buy it last time, because I wanted to give a bit of thought, after all I already had the black version. The original price (£29) wasn’t that bad anyway, but this time I could get it 50% off, which set the deal. Love this colour, always loved this colour, it would be so nice to find a nice, not too pricey, matching bag too… Maybe another time.
And because I was so happy with myself I went for a round to Zara too. These are the only things I tried on. Both of them quite nice and both of them on sale, but eventually I didn’t buy either of them. The blazer was a bit tight on my back but there was no more sizes. The booties were fine, the last pair in my size, but they were a bit worn down already (and haven’t seen the streets yet, bah), the inside is faux leather, plus they didn’t seam to stable to walk, so I let them there. I’m more excited about the white ones anyway.
And finally two more coats in Mango. If you ask me, Mango’s strongest suit is its outerwear selection and this time was no exception. I already tried the green one a while ago, but this time, probably due the winter weather I was more into the rusty one.
Actually I loved this rich warm rust colour (and the fabric, and the fit), and it would have been perfect with my newest goals to wear matching colours with my warm complexion, but unfortunately the mark down wasn’t that generous (50 instead of £60 I think) especially if we count my previous buy, a bomber for 15.
Plus, and this is important too, it didn’t have a belt. Or buttons. Or anything (just two annoying belts on the sleeves which kept slipping off). At all. And while I’m usually wearing longer coats unbuttoned, I also like options, you know, like available options, especially for 50 quid. On sale. In wintertime for a trench coat.
But anyway, I was just finishing when I got my e-mail from Office, so I went there to collect my white boots. My brand new WHITE ANKLE BOOTS!!!! Do I sound excited? Well, it’s not a coincidence. It was a mistake not to buy them at the first time, but at least I know now and nothing has changed since then so it’s fine. They’re really comfortable and stylish which is a rare combo, plus I love how fresh they make this whole look. The red boots are nice too, but that’s a totally different story, isn’t it?
So eventually I got both the bomber jacket and ankle boots, both of them on sale for a pretty good price and I cannot wait to wear them, preferably together. Or not. Oh, the beautiful options….
Have a great weekend guys! Try not to get sick as I did. Nasty colds are the worst probably when you’re a grown up. Is this karma for all the good experience? Naaahhh, a nasty cold is a nasty cold.
