Shop your closet…
This is becoming a series of posts, isn’t it? Oh well, why not. So, everything you see here you’ve seen before, many times. Maybe just not in this particular combination.
It was a cold, windy day… Just what you’d expect for late autumn. And I’m way behind in my plan to put away summer clothes and make room for winter clothes. And as I’ve been (and will be for a few more weeks) quite busy with work, it might well be that the big wardrobe overhaul will have to wait till December. Or January. Make that February. Or… Oh well, it’s going to be spring soon again. Well, eventually, I mean… Besides, who’s going to see what’s in my closet?
Anyway… As I was saying, at least I’ve managed to resurrect outerwear that is more appropriate for the colder weather.
I have quite a few coats, and if I’m totally honest, I really don’t need another one. Well, maybe a slightly shorter wool coat in a different style… Or a new puffa coat for winter… But I definitely don’t need another long, belted wool coat. I have three of them. And I bought this one only last year. And another long, belted coat the year before that. So, one wool coat (sorry, but I simply can’t call this a winter coat…) per year, on average. That’s not so bad, is it?
No, I really have to get my coat addiction under control. This year, I’m going to focus on what I actually need. So, no new wool coat (yes, you’ll probably be seeing this coat again…). But that new puffa coat might not be such a bad idea…
Anyway, about this outfit… Yes, it’s an old coat, and an even older dress, and the bag isn’t this year’s style, either. That’s life: you wear old clothes and make the most of it. And this is a personal style blog, and I’m a blogger who values honesty (most of the time, anyway).
And where was I going, wearing these
old rags gems from my curated wardrobe? To dinner with hubby, and I wanted to dress up a bit, in spite of the windy weather.

How many coats is too many?
