I won't let you go, summer...
Especially because it suddenly became winter here in Sweden, I'm thinking of those warm summer nights. And the current strategy is bringing back warm feelings with some color splashes and great memories of summer 2016.
Generally being a minimalist when it comes to colors in my closet, I am now embracing my inner Barbie, taking me back to memories of awesome California, where I've been travelling this summer. By accident I've put together my lastly bought sweater and my rather old VinoKilo trench coat. And this is when magic happened: I feel like cotton candy and the bright warm sun at the same time :)
People would rather not think of me, öko Kim, when they think of a feminine woman. I unconsciously prefer hanging out with guys and ended up being in a working environment with 3. Friends make fun of me being easily friendzoned because of my boy-ish attitude towards them and other girls envy me a bit for not blushing every five minutes when being around good looking guys (shoutout to the VinoKilo Crew and Reaggy, haha).
But this outfit, wearing a soft pink flattery trench coat with some heels desperately screams: Guys, look at me, I have boobs. And I'm so enjoying it!
I remember when I first tried it on. My dearest friend Isabel fell in love seeing it on me, whereas I spiritlessly asked her if this 'dress up game' is over now. I really didn't feel comfortable. But rumors say that one may practice patience to fall in love.
So here it is, my current autumn outfit, which I even color up with a red scarf. It reminds me of soft ice cream, cotton candy and a Katie Perry video. I like playing with perceptions and surprising friends with my feminine charms. I deny to stick to autumn colors like orange and brown. Yes, some days I feel like it as well, but who's not happy wearing bright yellow and pink?!
I do have some more color blocking in mind... Let's see if it's worth sharing on the blog.
