Double breasted coat

double breasted coat Esprit

Hej cuties! Hope you’re having a great week so far! If I could only wear one item this Fall, it would obviously be the coat. Not only because it’ll keep me most warm, but mostly because it’s all about the coat this Fall and Winter. Of course the fluffy, teddy and faux fur coats are a huge trend as we speak, but also the tailoring trend is one I really like. I used to have a good tailored black wool coat until it turned bad after washing it myself (DON’T, please DON’T!) and I got rid of it and decided that the tailored coat might not be for me. Until I saw this one from Esprit, clean, tailored, double breasted with gold details, and then I decided to give the tailored black wool coat another try. So far, so good, and I really plan on keeping it good. So no doggie walking with this one and keeping it fresh for the exciting events and dates. Love the contrast with my blonde hair as well. What do you think? And how have you been? I’ve been feeling not that good as of lately to be honest. Mostly due to the way I see my body. It’s still so hard to gain confidence on a healthy weight. Screw you eating disorder!! Positive vibes for the win!

Taking a leap of faith, making a career transition, leaving a known and charted career path is scary. But if the only actual obstacle blocking me from doing what I’m truly passionate about is ‘fear’, I hereby conquer my fears and go forward with my passion.
