#Favourites 2: Warm-up sessions

My second installment for the favourites mini-series focuses on an essential winter staple: the outer layer of clothing that keeps us warm and stylish at once. Be it a coat, a parka, a blazer, or a woolen jacket, there are many variations on a theme that allow us to complete our attire with a key piece. This winter I’ve stocked up on the above types of overcoat garments as I felt my wardrobe needed some revamping in this department. The pieces I picked up were incredibly reasonably priced that it would have been almost criminal (as in shameful), to overlook, particularly because they are investment pieces of good quality. Here are some pics and below the details:

Details: 1. Blazer in grey (small houndstooth pattern, aka puppytooth) – Mango; 2. Oversized coat in speckled grey – Oasis; 3. Woolen jacket in soft grey w/patches & collar in dark oatmeal – thrifted; 4. Parka in military green w/ faux fur hood & inner lapel lining – Jane Norman

p.s. a brief note on my purchasing preferences: I had decided a while back that I would only buy Sales items if there were really dependable pieces, such as a pair of branded jeans, or leather shoes. However, I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the above, especially when you consider they are from stores like Mango, Oasis, and Jane Norman; only then, I had to look twice, even if I wasn’t planning on buying anything :p
