I am so excited to start off a late-September #ootd post by talking about how warm it is instead of showing snow covered trees. Miracles really do happen! It’s probably the best thing to happen in this pandemic. However, I think I’m jinxing it all and we’re going to get a really long winter after being spoiled by this beautiful September. But let’s stay optimistic and hope for a winter that only lasts from November to February. Now, that is something I could deal with. Fingers crossed y’all, fingers crossed.
Have I talked about my love for pistachio green on ze blog yet? I don’t even remember. It’s all a blur. Nonetheless, it’s worth talking about again. Remember the days when I was obsessed with mustard yellow? Those days are no more. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still wear the occasional yellow item but I am no longer solely buying mustard yellow pieces. And why is that? Because the colour green has captured my heart. Sage, pistachio, olive. I want it all. It’s just so pretty. I never thought I could like a colour more than mustard yellow yet here we are. Prepare yourselves as I rebuy everything in my closet in sage and pistachio. It’s happening. Change is near here.
I bought this cardigan off my friend, Vanessa. As soon as I saw she was selling something green, I knew I had to have it. It’s a matching lightweight knit cardigan and tank top set. The tank top fits horribly (I now understand why she was selling it) in a oversized boxy way but looks super cute when you pair the two together. Let’s be honest, I really only bought this because it’s pistachio green. And because I desperately needed more tops in my life. I have a lot of clothes (way too much clothes) but at times it seems like I have no basic tops to wear. Plus, shirts are the only things that matter now that 90% of my colleagues only see the upper half of my outfit. On that same note, leggings and sweatpants are officially my best friends.
With this cardigan co-ord set, I paired my grey trench coat overtop. An advantage that also comes with this surprisingly mild September weather is the fact that I now finally have a chance to wear my spring and fall jackets. Usually summer flows right into winter with a weird freak snowstorm that hits at the end of August and just doesn’t stop until mid-March so I never get to pull out my lighter spring/fall jackets. It’s usually just a transition from a tank top to a Super Puff. Ooomph, I’m really selling Edmonton winters, hey? BUT, this year, we got lucky and I finally have a chance to wear this trench coat. That was quite the tangent just to say that I like this trench. I hope you enjoyed it!
