I told you I’m clearly obsessed with pink and might’ve a problem. Pink anonymous anyone? One of my last sale purchase, was this pair of cuter than cute leather loafers, which are a total Mansur Gavriel dupe. True, I wore them on a winter day without any socks whatsoever (it wasn’t freezing cold). And not just for the pictures. Yet another Sunday me and my husband went for a stroll and some errands in the city. We may, or may not, ended up eating fries at Shake Shack.
I have to admit I didn’t feel totally myself in this outfit. Mostly because the faux fur coat felt a bit too much. But there’s no disposing of coats this time of year in New York. I loved the look without it though. It felt casual, relaxed, non-chalant and boyish (the sweater is actually my husband’s). The pink loafers added a bit of femininity and elegance. But getting out of my comfort zone, when it comes to clothes, is a challenge I face daily.
Lately I’ve been feeling uninspired to create outfits. In the first few weeks of the year, I was about to give up the outfit of the day posts because they all consisted of the same formula. A large coat, lots of layers, jeans and sneakers. Nothing very inspiring about that. But then the temperatures got a bit better. And, as I’ve told you before, I don’t like to get dressed just for pictures. I like my outfits to be a reflection of what I wear on a normal basis.
I usually try them out off-camera and a day or two later, shoot them with M. Just because I want to see if they feel comfortable, are wearable and make any sense. So, hence the excessive experimentation with patterns and mainly bloc colors lately (like here, here and here). You might’ve already seen this outfit roaming around my Instagram, but the leather loafers were left out for the element of surprise. What do you think?
