The perfect parka

I've been on the hunt for the perfect parka since this time last year. Well I've finally found the one and it ticks all the boxes.  If I could have written down (or drawn) exactly what I wanted, this Joseph parka would have been it. Literally it without a single change. How rare is that?

  1. I love the idea of a parka - it's cold/raining, just throw it on.
    I love your Comme Des Garcons T.

  5. You know, I'm not usually a fan of Parkas but I have to say I love this one, because of the length. And I love the way you styled it, looks so nautical!

  6. Isn't it funny how everyone has their own idea of the perfect item they are looking for? Glad you managed to find your parka, I'm still on the hunt for mine (just above the knee, utilitarian style body, tie at the waist and sleeves that finish at the wrist).

    Love the way you wore it, looks perfect for running around on the weekend and keeping dry too!

  23. First of all. I love these pictures, especially the 'jumping' ones! This parka is a great new entry and it is one of those classic piece - like the trench, the blazer, etc. - that you are going to wear it forever! I like the casual styling with jeans, but I also like mixing a parka with feminine dresses. Caterina

  27. This outfit looks amazing, I think you're right. When I first started blogging, I gave myself so much pressure as to what I want to wear for when I take my photos that I stopped having fun. At the end of the day, I feel like in the past year or two, I've come to terms with my style and I've let fashion be more of my lifestyle and a everyday thing. I like when blogs stay true to what is actually worn by the blogger on a day to day basis.
