Trench: Stradivarius// Shirt: Uniqlo// Leather shorts and scarf: local stores// Bag: Zara// Shoes: Edge c/o Zalora
Every time I think about the quintessential Brit pieces, it always goes down to a good, classic trench, oxfords and some plaid. Maybe that's a bit stereotypical, but until I finally travel to London someday, it will always be in my mind.
So here's my outfit of the day. One of my favorites by far, and yet one of the simplest. I did consider adding a statement piece or two, but the weather was really bad and I had so much errands that I needed something as unfussy as possible. Oh, meet my new platform oxfords. When I was in HK Fashion Week, I got a total of 400HKD in gift coupons for their website. So...shopping! These shoes were the first to arrive, at 10a.m last Thursday. It was a pleasant surprise that made my morning. I fell in love with the original Stella McCartney platforms a few months back but in a million years I would not be able to afford those, so here's something similar, though it doesn't have the wooden layer.
They are so wearable and cool, and comfy. But they scuff my heel - why do leather shoes have to hurt so much when they're new? Why do we have to go through hell before that day when they finally fit beautifully? Sigh. Anyways, I'll see you soon!
