It’s such an elusive concept, completely dependent on what ‘winter‘ is like in your neck of the woods.
Anyway, I showed you what I was wearing in Finland, so let’s have Tiina’s take on British winter next.
Of course, this is what I was wearing a couple of weeks ago.
I don’t always post outfits in chronological order. I tend have my posts prepared a week or two before they go live, and I often change the order of the posts, too, depending on my mood. It’s extremely rare for me to post something the day I wrote it, but I’ve done it on a few occasions. So, there you have it, this is how I plan my blog posts: well in advance. It’s just the way I am: I need time to prepare something, to think about it and work on it. And then I may just change my mind and do something completely different at the last minute.
Yes, I do that with outfits, too: I may have an outfit for work planned the night before, carefully selected to suit the occasion and the weather. And in the morning I’m just not feeling it and decide to wear something completely different. Which of course leads to a mad rush and clothes tossed all over the floor…
So, why bother planning at all if I always change my mind? Well, it’s always good to have a plan, just in case. Besides, having a plan doesn’t mean you have to follow it. But, if you have a plan, you don’t have to make decisions under pressure, either, because you always have the plan the fall back on. Does that make sense? I didn’t think so, either.
Anyway, as I had a few posts on my holiday looks and Madeira prepared, I thought I would just mix it up a bit: holiday looks, Finnish winter, British winter… Otherwise, I would be showing you post after post after post, for weeks on end, nothing but heavy winter gear and snow, and that would get a bit boring. It would certainly get a bit boring for me, so I decided to mix it up a bit.
So, today we have my new favourite coat again, with the skirt I bought in autumn, and one of my favourite cashmere sweaters and an old bag. Well, you’ve seen all of these before, and will find the details and links to old post at the end of this post.
coat: Hobbs (seen before HERE and HERE) / skirt: Gerry Weber (seen before HERE) / cashmere sweater: Zadig & Voltaire (old, seen before HERE) / shoes: Clarks / bag: Lancel (old, seen before HERE) / gloves: Dents / scarf: Lochmere / sunglasses: Dolce & Gabbana
Do you plan your outfits ahead or play it by the ear?
Or are you as neurotic as I am and do both?
