If you follow me on Twitter then you know I've had a thing for camel coats this season. Ever since Vogue Korea put Gigi Hadid in one on the cover of their September issue it's been my mission to find one. I'm pretty sure the one Gigi was wearing in the shoot is from Max Mara but seeing how those are ££££, I decided to look elsewhere. Thankfully Zara came through with a near perfect one - it's big, it's cosy, it's a little more brown than camel but I'm willing to overlook that.

I've always thought of winter coats as more vehicles than actual parts of my outfits, using them just to get to a certain destination and not freeze along the way. This coat is definitely more than a means to stay warm though: I've been planning outfits for it and everything. This particular outfit isn't one of them but I thought it was still blog-worthy. I tend to go back and forth with double denim - sometimes I'm like YES!, other times I feel like it's too much. But I have this shirt and jeans that are almost the same shade and I feel like not wearing them together is a missed opportunity somehow. Also, put a coat in a different colour over the outfit and it goes from too much to just right.

So how's everyone been recently? I turned 23 last week and these photos were taken before I had dinner with the parents (thanks again for the photos mum!). My birthday has brought me a weird sense of seriousness towards my life, like it's time to start thinking about what I really want and how to get there and that my rough blueprints don't really cut it anymore. It might have something to do with my slight fear of ageing, although I'm pretty sure I went through something similar when I made the big jump from age 9 to 10. For the meantime, I really need to update all my online profiles that still say I'm 22...
