Last year, I finally worked out two things:
1) I don’t like wearing fitted trench coats, and
2) I don’t like wearing fitted blazers.
The irony was that I owned two gorgeous trench coats and about half a dozen blazers, all of which I decided to cull from my wardrobe. Why hang on to something I know I’ll never wear? So I listed them on eBay, uploaded them to my Big Cartel store and even implored all of my Facebook friends to buy them off me. It was incredibly liberating.
In their place, I found two vintage capes on Etsy that allow me the freedom of movement that I both need and crave in an outer garment. This is one of them. Not only do I love its yellow colour, but it’s incredibly warm and snug and I can throw it over the top of almost anything. Now that’s the type of versatility that I like!
It’s taken me so long to realise that the fewer things I have in my wardrobe, the happier I am. And that the beauty of a piece of clothing has nothing to do with its material, brand, quality, colour or age, but everything to do with how much it is worn and loved.
At the moment, I have a notebook full of ideas for this blog, and I’m ridiculously excited. I can’t wait. I can’t wait! Lots of photos to take, lots of writing to do!
In the meantime, I hope you’re all enjoying a gorgeous weekend. Let me know if you’re doing anything special, okay?
