Ever since the camel coat arrived to my life, nothing has been able to top it. Thats how much I enjoy a good camel coat. And you guys know how much I love coats! Last year I went for a more traditional styling whereas this year I’m playing more with colors.

The combination of red and camel wasn’t obvious at first but once I threw on the camel coat it made perfectly sense. You know that moment when you think to yourself ‘Why haven’t I been combining these two together before?’.In my case there’s a pretty logical explanation, I’ve been on a monochrome path for so long.

But as we grow (older haha) its fun to get to know yourself and explore what you like. The other day I was thinking about how I used to dress in my late teens, there’s a few similarities in terms of my basic philosophy yet I was more about be on trend. As the year passed, trends have become more irrelevant whereas the notion of my own personal style have been growing. I’m looking forward to look back on my 32 years self in five or ten years to see what’s changed in terms of personal style. And that’s one of great things about this platform that I can go back and it will always be here.

Hope you all are off to a lovely start on this week and happy first December!

Winter Essentials

sara-che-wardrobe-fall-coats-mansur-gavriel-bucket-bag-mini-acne-studios-scarf-dagmar-faux-colorful-jacket

A coat or jacket can set the tone of a look, just like shoes which makes it fun to play around with different styles. This season, I’ve changed lanes from monochrome to adding colours. Since my goal is to create a sustainable closet I’m trying to be mindful of my choices and what purpose they serve.

1. Biker Jacket

Needless to say that its a timeless piece, therefore do I advice to invest in something that will pass all the point for the perfect jacket.

2. The Classic

Instead of black, a blue coat felt more fun yet classic. Especially with its sophisticated cut. Another thing that makes it modern and up to date is the oversized and boxy feel to the coat. Let’s face it, Swedes know their outerwear.

3. In Retro-grade

Since the 70’s is one of my favourites eras in terms of fashion (amongst other things) it was long overdue to add burgundy piece. What I love about this one in particular is that its faux leather, the cut is timeless and add that perfect retro feel to any attire.

4. Faux-real

Speaking of colour, did someone call in the cavalry? Well the answer is yes, this jacket my go-to choice whenever the weather is grey and dull. Its faux fur, keeps me warm and makes me happy whenever the weather doesn’t.

I’ve also added a few of my favourite pieces, I hope like them because I use them on rotation. Finding any other favourite piece? Tell me below!

48 Hours in Brussels under lock down

sara-he-48-hours-in-brussels-under-lockdowm

Everything started as a trip to a unknown destination, my friends an initiative to go somewhere in Europe for two nights whiteout knowing the destination until we arrived to the airport. Once we we arrived to the airport I was informed that Brussels was our destination. We boarded the aircraft happy and excited, neither my friend nor I had been there before.

As soon as we arrived to the hotel, the staff informed us to not get worried if we were to see armed men walking on the street. They also told us that the situation in Brussels had been affected from the last weeks events in Paris. Happily informed, my friend and I left the hotel after checking ourselves in to get a glance of Brussels.

Our first impression was that there weren’t much people on the streets, especially for a Friday night. And yes, there were police and army men walking around which made us feel more secure.

Unfortunately, it started to rain and the streets got emptier which made more then sense. We found a cute little restaurant and order a couple of mint tea, it started to get late so we decided to take the subway back home.

The following day, the hotel staff told us that the subway was closed and that we could only take the bus. Great opportunity to see more of the city was out first thought, but when my family and friends start to send text messages to be careful followed by phone calls from reporters from various news outlets I started to wonder “whats going on?”.

Yes, there we’re less people out on the streets. But it was a Saturday morning and the rain poured down. I finished off my first interview while we were on the bus headed to our breakfast spot, the second (TV) interview after we’d finished off our breakfast and the third while leaving the café.

People didn’t seem worried and we thought everyone was very friendly and had a positive attitude despite what was going on. Only thing was that the city was basically on lockdown, there were no people out, the shops that were open were told to close up. Since Brussels shopping mall was closed I looked for shelter from the rain at The Plaza. I tried to order a cab back to my hotel but the taxi company that they work with had no taxis out. So I walked back, for 30 minutes which was very lovely (as soon as the rain stopped). So I decided to charge my batteries and hop on a train to Antwerpen because Brussels had turned into a ghost town. It was quite nice to arrive to Antwerpen, there were people out. The shops and restaurants were open. After spending a few hours there I decided to head back before it got late, the status in Brussels was the same. Ghost town, echo!

As I’m writing this while waiting to board the aircraft I cant help to think about how media can affect us, its such a powerful medium. And in times like these, we really need to filter and read between the lines. A reporters job is to report/write objectively, which seams rare nowadays because the news outlets are more concerned about creating headlines. Read the full article here (its in Swedish) and see for yourself if you the same conclusion from my own written words. What do you think? Tell me below!

Layers upon cropped flares

sara-che-weekday-flare-crop-pants-whistles-silver-mules-proenza-schoulder-ps11-mini-bag-mlm-the-label-knit

Playing with layers is always fun, however when the temperature starts dropping below zero the fun part fades away and becomes more of a necessity. Since I am firm believer that fashion should always be fun, I’ve found a few tricks to get through the cold temperatures without  having to compromising on style.

  • Focus on choosing items with natural textiles to keep the heat
  • Layer, and layer under the layer. I am for example wearing a ribbed top under the white long-sleeved top. Nothing you can see, yet helps me a lot.
  • Go for a cropped flare trousers instead of a skirt, adds that little extra to a look without having to expose the legs to the cold.
  • Mules instead of pumps or sandals. I don’t know if its only me but a mule allows me to not get as cooled down as pumps.

 

Many of us tend to go for darker shads at this time of the year, if adding colours isn’t your thing I’d suggest adding some metals. Accessories to make the look more interesting and vibrant.  The accessories are as good for daytime and nightie, plus adaptable to different season so make sure to invest in something sustainable.
