Shoes aside, blazers are my kryptonite when it comes to shopping, but like most wonderful things everyone else in other parts of the world gets to enjoy *cough*leather anything* cough*, our weather isn’t the friendliest for them. This is why we can’t have nice things.
The solution: vests!
I’ve my qualms when it comes to vests because picked or worn wrongly and it is too easy to risk looking like a pirate, a genie or Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead. I’ve also a soft spot for long vests and had the hardest time finding one that didn’t look like a lab coat or make me look like a character from Blade.
When I saw this one from Zara, I had to brace myself for the price because I knew I was getting it no matter what, so imagine my surprise when it was on more than half off. It is times like this that really makes my day — finding a piece you’ve had your eyes on in the longest time, in the perfect design, right size and on sale.
Together with it, I also got to bring my new MCM clutch out to play the other day and these photos settled it once and for all that a splash of colour never hurt anyone. I wasn’t sure if purple was my colour but now, it looks perfect in retrospect. Note to self to try out something new every once in a while from now on.
