I’m tired of my winter clothes, so this is another ‘transitional look’: a wool coat and a lighter dress. And a really warm cashmere scarf because it was actually quite cold when we took these photos (-4 °C to be exact).
Unlike most of the outfits I feature on the blog, this one was put together solely for this post. And I couldn’t have been more eager to get back home and take it off. But that had nothing to do with the outfit. Well, in a sense it did; I was freezing…
The thing is, I’ve been waiting for warmer weather so I could try this particular combination. And for a while it looked as if spring might be on its way. And then it got colder again… Hey, this is Finland, and it’s early March; it may start snowing again tomorrow!
Anyway, about the outfit…
Yes, I had this crazy idea of pairing this lightweight, floaty dress with edgy, black accessories. I thought the result would be either a super cool 90’s inspired look (sort of grown-up version of Gen X Grunge, or something) or a complete mess (you know, when a minimalist tries to pass for a maximalist…)
But to be honest, I don’t know what to think. Does it work? Well… I don’t think this dress is me. I mean, I don’t dislike it. But I don’t love it, either. And here the dress is the only item that feels a bit, oh I don’t know, not me, if you know what I mean.
But hey, it was an experiment. Experiments are good, right? Let me know what you think in the comments, OK?
coat: Sand / dress: Andiata / shoes: Nero Giardini /
bag: Chanel / sunglasses: Prada
So, what do you think, is this outfit a hit or a miss?
PS: I have been having a lot of problems with Bloglovin lately. Again. It takes about 2 days for any of my posts to appear on the Bloglovin feed, and sometimes they miss a post altogether. I keep sending Blogloving (increasingly annoyed and frustrated) emails, asking them to fix the problem, but they don’t seem to care. I always get a standard, automated reply, but nothing changes, and nobody ever gets in touch with me. It’s as if they don’t care. Or as if there’s nobody (a real person, I mean) to read the so-called ‘feedback’ they get. If you follow this blog on Blogloving, and if it takes about 2 days for you to get the latest post on your feed, could you give them some feedback, too?
