PLAID, LEATHER, KNIT & SUNSHINE

I honestly cannot be happier these days!
After two weeks of depressive weather and poor light, the Sun finally showed up its face yesterday. I woke up with so much energy and positivity. The sunshine has so much positive influence on my mood that as soon as I opened my eyes, I jumped out of bed (which is so unusual for me), started organizing my day, my week, the holidays and the list goes on… That felt good!
After a productive morning, I had a very productive afternoon too! Don’t know if it is the weather or not, but I got a clear and definite ‘yes’ from my husband when I asked him if he’ll go with me for a session of shopping at the mall. The last time we went shopping together was like a year ago, you know how men are…
Anyways, before going to the mall we stopped at this beautiful spot not far from where we live to take a few shots. The view was impressive as usual. Is there anything prettier than a view of sunny snowy mountains ? It is so relaxing and pure and every time I see them, I cannot wait to go snowboarding.
The outfit I picked out for yesterday was super comfy and cozy, exactly what I was looking for since shopping can sometimes be very exhausting. I went for the plaid shirt as it goes perfectly with the actual mood. Tartan patterns always reminded me of Christmas so it was an obvious choice. I usually wear it buttoned up but this time I wanted to play with layers and decided to wear a white t-shirt under it. The faux-leather pants added a rock’n’roll therefore interesting vibe to the whole look so that is why I wore them instead of a pair of jeans. As for the shoes, it didn’t take me long to choose. I will never wear anything else than sneakers for a shopping session, never! Hats off to all those women and girls I saw yesterday strolling through the mall and carrying their shopping bags, their bulky coats and wearing heels! Speaking of bulky coats, I definitely didn’t want to carry around my down coat which tends to annoy me pretty quickly as I have to have my hands free to touch all the fabrics, so this time I turned on my brains while still at home and decided to wear my warm knitted oversized cardigan which once I was hot, put in the shopping bag.

Take care guys!

Promod coat, Stradivarius shirt and sneakers, Tally Weijl jeans, Random viscose scarf

I guess fall has arrived. I had to wear a coat today, a thin one though so there’s no reason to complain or worry as for the next 5 days the weather forecast is quite good.
For today’s look I opted for this navy coat with large silver zippers, a denim shirt and white jeans. As I have previously wrote about my obsession for navy and white stripes, there’s no surprise I accessorized with a striped scarf. Oh by the way, I am literally mad about scarfs and shawls which I sometimes wear as the key piece of the outfit. The one I wore today, added some visual interest to the plain pieces of clothing this look is made of. As I’ve spent my day shopping and strolling through the city, what a better choice than my super confy half-varnished dark blue sneakers to finish this particularly simple look of the day.
