Another great Zara sale find, I encountered last month - the midi skirt. My search for one had been going on for a while now, and there it is, another necessary addition to Kristina's closet. Now on to the hunt for spring break pieces, which begins in just 3 weeks, can't wait.
As mentioned previously I had gone on a little vacation after vacation to New York, or vacation after an exhilirating and crazy winter break to be exact. Loved the cooler weather, the vibrant streets and of course all the favorite stores in bigger, triple floor versions as well as Topshop which I've never physically visited before. I found myself surrounded by millions of New Yorkers whose preferred winter hues seemed to be dark, most I saw dressed in black or navy, and a few in long fur coats. And what kept me warm? An H&M coat of a rebellious light beige color! Wish we had more colder days over here so I could utilize it more but for now New York gave me that opportunity, with a camel sweater underneath too.
And here's one of my favorite songs about New York (kind of) by The Kills.
Celebration of New Year went wonderful in the company of my friends. The party lasted from 9PM to 6AM and even by then I felt like I had the energy to go on longer. After all, New Year is my favorite holiday of the year. After about 5 hours of sleep, I had to rush over to my parents' house because it just so happens that my lovely mother's birthday is on the 1st. Altough a bit tired with a combination of a headache, I managed to last through that celebration as well. I still haven't given up on new year's resolutions either, love the beginning of 2011, I see it as a fresh new, mint, white, fresh slate. Now, I shall begin packing for a little trip to NY.
After anticipating for quiet a while for the temperatures to drop so I can put this baby to use, it finally occurred. The H&M coat gets a lot of stares, and a fraction of those are followed by compliments. Since I've purchased it back in august and only now has the time come, I cannot stop wearing it. I have also realized that it actually looks much better unbelted, the form is flattering as it is and the lack of belt gives it a more effortless/minimal feel. The belt adds a touch of feminine elegance but I happen to fancy the art of effortless. As for more northern locations, it's probably not thick enough to withstand the weather unless you layer it properly with something warm underneath, I guess I'll have to test it out next week on a trip to NY.
