On my Instagram account (bonnyssoulfood) you could already see my new jacket from Stradivarius and finally I’m making a blog post about it. Right before New Year’s Eve I needed a winter jacket, the weather was becoming colder and I only had my leather jacket here with me in Malta. So I went in a search for new jacket. And I can tell you, it was tough. All the jackets that I liked were in sizes M, L, Xl and some of them I found in size S but still too big for me. The sleeves were too long, the shoulders wide, and I mean, not wide shoulders like a new trend (they are supposed to be a bit wider) , but rather I was looking like a kid that took his mother’s jacket. Just not right. Ughhh. So I found one like this one, only brown and made from fake leather, but it was big. And next to it was this beautiful jacket that I was too scared even to try it because I knew I would like it, bit it looked just so sensitive. The material and the color, I was just not sure. I tried it and it looked ok, but I was too scared to buy it cause I didn’t know how I’m supposed to clean it and maintain it. I went another round through the shops and at last came back and bought it. Yes, I had in my mind – fu*** it! 😀 I really liked it. And the sleeves were perfect, for once. Later on I asked my mom how to clean it, she said it will be fine in the washing machine, just to revert it. You know, mom always knows the best, so if she said it’s gonna be fine, I belive it. And I relaxed my mind.
What else I like about the jacket is that is completely fitted to the body, there is no much space between me and her ( 😀 ) and inside its some fluffy material and all those things together make this coat extra warm. Not even the strong wind here in Malta can get through it and make me feel cold.
Another thing, the style of the jacket is so versatile – I was wearing it on dress in the evening, every day to go wherever, with sport shoes and leggings, jeans and it fits very good to almost any outfit. And I love to have pieces that are easy to mix and match, makes my life so much easier and my style polished.
So, what do you think of it? What do you prefer wearing in winter, coats or jackets? For many years I was wearing only coats in the winter time, but now with the comeback of the ’90s I like also jackets again. In all the crazy or soft colors…♡
