Winter is Coming

In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer–Albert Camus

Winter. It conjures up so many different ideas and emotions in me. I love the novelty of winter–the idea to sit with a cup of hot chocolate beside the heater or nice fire place (if I am lucky), doodling on fog stained windows and loosing myself in dog-eared pages of a book. Yes, winter can be special but at the same time the perpetual rain, greyness and shorter days gets on to me. When the gloom of winter strikes; I make it a point to inject color in my sartorial choices because sometimes that’s the best and easiest way to pep up your mood and your days.

Winter Fashion Coats

Much like the tell-tale signs of nature; fashion and street style too seems to gravitate towards the dark side. Suddenly, you see a plethora of head to toe black, grey and hints of berry ruling the streets. However, I can only take so much of darkness and my mantra in winter months is to throw in some bright hues to keep is sassy.

A bright coat has a certain je ne sais quoi  that lends you a vibrancy. In this look, I have used a delicious bright green color that is actually my mum’s. I took it (emotionally blackmailed her to keep it) from her when she came from Bombay (Mumbai) to help me during the last days of pregnancy. I have paired it with an old simple green T-shirt (from Dubai) and my Hobbs skirt from this post. I have used my trusted Timberland boots from this post and the over sized scarf is actually my blanket coat. I have also used a dark pink Gap bag  from this post to add another dimension to the look.

Talking about winter, I can vouch last year at this time I was still wearing summery dresses rather than covering myself in so many layers but the temperature has already plummeted to a -1 degree Celsius. And as soon as I got ready to step outside (mind you with an unpredictable baby on tow) it started pouring like cats and dogs. But a girl (and a fashion blogger) got to do what a girl to do. I happily kept the coat on me, took the photos inside the building and made peace with the fact that winter is coming back with a vengeance.
