Remember what I said on Day 2 about coats contributing to the outfit instead of just being a warm cover-up? Well, I think in this case, the coat IS the outfit. It’s my all-time favourite coat, bought from an American online vintage store. I loved it so much I just had to have it shipped across the pond!

The lush electric blue velvet emits a buttery glow in movement, and to keep that highlighted I built the outfit with earth colours: khaki cargo pants and a cookie brown satchel. Also, to balance out the intensity of the coat, I kept to casual basics.
