Winter Blues

40+ winter coat

Blue and White

is a  classic colour combination, always fresh, and so much more forgiving than black and white for someone with my colouring. Blue and white combo is also a good, neutral background for a third, accent colour.

So, several good reasons for wearing blue and white, none of which are really relevant here. I wanted to wear something (mainly) blue and white because this post goes live on 6 December (Independence Day in Finland), and I thought I should wear my national pride on my sleeve, so to speak.

I'm wearing:
coat: Reiss (old, seen on the blog many, many times...) /
dress: Phase Eight (seen before HERE) / s
carf: Fraas (old) / bag and sunglasses: Chanel / boots: old

To my Finnish readers: Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää! (= Happy Independence Day)

    1. Yes, blue and white is a fabulous combination. But I'm a bit biased, of course. Or, it would be unpatriotic of me to say otherwise...
      Suzanne deserves to be honoured, you're right.

    1. Thanks! I always try to find coats in striking colours. A coat is such a big part of the outfit, and we tend to wear the same coat with so many different outfits, and for months on end. And I need some colour to counteract the winter bleakness...

    1. Thanks! My wardrobe is full of blue, I should really experiment with other colours more. It's just so easy to find something nice in blue, and it goes well with many other colours, too.
