UK survival outfit for millennial budget

Hello my dear readers!

This post will be short as I wanted to show you something different, something new and exciting and … as you might have already guessed not exactly kitchen related. Today I wanted to show you … why the UK is a small lush island made out of green nature and  girls who wearing fashionable trench coats with big royal hats going all for that detective looking style. In fact I wanted to show you myself in one of these outfits although whether it is cute or not I leave that for you to decide :)… and yes I know, I realize my blog focuses mostly on the kitchen recipes and my personal life experiences and I think rightfully so as many of you keep coming back for more (which makes me so pleased and appreciated btw!), But this winter I just couldn’t stop myself to go outside and take a small private photo session in my regular outfit.

Let’s start with the basics. If you have never been to UK my dear reader then you must know that for most part of the year the weather in UK changes fast and I mean like really, really fast which is why one must always be prepared for unexpected rain, strong winds, occasional rainbows and foggy streets. Because of such atmospheric abnormalities you can sometimes find yourself walking alone on a high street surrounded by bricks and mortars and shady looking characters (your fellow citizens) in shady looking rain coats, their faces covered in polyester fabric with no eye contact being ever made.

In order to keep my head up high and my presence warm and welcoming I have developed this outfit preferences to match the ever growing demands of the British weather daily challenges. I realize actually that this is a historical moment for this blog as just like a magician I am about to reveal the true criminal mastermind behind this little blog. For my loyal readers as well as new ones …. behold as I am about to witness pictures myself!

I decided to wear this trench because in my opinion it is a great classic part of the wardrobe. I am a big fan of timeless clothes that I can wear for many years. Did you know that trench coats were originally used in the military for their durability? I bought this coat 4 years ago in Zara and I actually wear it all year round. It works great in the fall, as well as on cooler summer days and, in combination with a warm sweater, works for me also in the winter.

As for the rest of my wardrobe, I am wearing this year’s skinny jeans from Next, a black blouse also from Next, hat from Primark, five-year shoes from artificial leather which I can no longer read the brand and a 15- year-old belt with an equally mysterious origin

If you are wondering what I am wearing on these pictures, here are the details:
Zara trench (Price is around £100. My model is no longer available because I bought it 4 years ago, but I found several similar in Zara if you want to see here, here, and here ),
Skinny jeans from Next (£ 25 here)
Long Sleeve Top from Next (£ 22 here),
Hat from Primark (£ 10, but I couldn’t find anything similar on their site)

Let me know what you think about my outfit.
