This winter, I was shopping with already Spring on my mind. A couple of rather classic pieces in Mango had caught my eye and I've bought them in the course of the season. I haven't got anything that would be strictly just a winter season piece and color-wise, I kept it pretty much within a neutral color palette.
The suede leather jackets.
The jacket in electric blue caught my eye as the first one, I bought it, but then I spotted the navy blue one and couldn't forget it since. So, after a couple of weeks of deliberations with myself, I came to the conclusion that I really needed it :-) and so it ended up in my wardrobe as well. And I love it. It is so dark blue, that at first I wasn't quite sure if it is black or navy (I hate the fact, that there is no natural light in most of the shopping center shops). If it was black, I wouldn't have bought it. I am on the market for a great black leather biker jacket, but I already had the electric blue one at home and I try not to accumulate garments in the same cut just in different colors (yes, I plead guilty, I sometimes do that ;-).
For some reason, I really like the color navy - I think it can be as much classic as black is, but somehow less harsh for an everyday wear and more unexpected for evenings. That might also explain the other navy blue things I've got :-).
I don't think they need much of an explanation. I think the sweaters and the cardigans are the styles, that survive a number of fashion seasons and that's what I had on my mind when purchasing them.
OK, these are probably not the most exciting fashion pieces of the season, but recently, I am into getting some classics that can be mixed and matched with other, more of-the-moment pieces and these just fitted the bill :-).
... to be continued (with Zara sale finds :-).
Have a great NEW YEAR full of happiness, creativity and inspiration!
