I’ve had this coat for years
And I’ve even featured it on the blog before, with the same scarf, no less. I admit, I find it a bit challenging to style this coat in a new way. Maybe it’s the bold pattern: I always think I need to tone everything else down a bit. Yet, at the same time I think the coat needs a dose of colour around it.
So, this is why I’m carrying a hot pink umbrella… I like mixing a bold pattern with bright colour, as long as they are sort of separate elements within the outfit…
And safety is important, of course.
This is not a brooch but a pedestrian safety reflector. When it’s dark, it reflects the light from headlights of passing cars, making sure the drivers can see me. This is rather important when we have only about 4-5 hours of daylight this time of the year…
