coat: c/o Sheinside - pants: River Island - t-shirt: gift - clogs: H&M
This coat. When I spotted it at sheinside.com, it was love at first sight. The only problem I was facing was what color I should get! The pale blue and barbie pink ones made my mouth water with their sweet, glossy, candylike appeal, but I was determined to steer away from the cutesy stuff this time. Keeping my recent thoughts in mind concerning the new route I'm trying to go, both in my style and in my life, I decided to take the most classic option. Yellow it was! A yellow raincoat is such an iconic piece that wearing it sets you up halfway between practicality and pastiche. Classic with a twist. I was a bit doubtful about the yellow flattering me because it's a difficult color to pull of, but I think it looks alright. I could totally be a character on That Seventies Show in this outfit btw.
The t-shirt is old, super old. Probably 8 years old, and a gift from when my brother moved to America to marry his sweetheart. I knew I'd love this t-shirt again some time in the future so I kept it around. Glad I did! My personal feelings about America are mixed, so the whole "America, Home of the Brave" slogan can be interpreted with a bit of bite. I guess Marina (and the Diamonds) said it best when she sang "I'm obsessed with the mess that's America".
