This is quite an unusual outfit for me. Don’t get me wrong, the coat, the scarf, the top and the boots are completely “me”, but I just hate tights. I really, really hate them. And for that reason, I hate skirts and dresses too. Also because they’re incredibly annoying when you’re cycling all the time (like I do). But, a girl’s gotta step out of her comfort zone sometimes, especially when she needs to dress up for work. Because my work involves a lot of walking and staircase running (I work in a shoe shop, for those of you who started wondering), I have the tendency to dress too casually sometimes, so I needed to step up my game.
This textured skirt from H&M has been in my closet for ages. I love how it’s just a black skirt, but still differs from the elastic skirts you find everywhere, because of the texture. It doesn’t stretch at all by the way, making it a real bike enemy, but giving it a chique and more sophisticated look. The coat is a dream really. I have it for over a year now (I actually showed it to you before, here), but I’m still not getting tired of it. It’s something about the straight fit, the grey and the patent leather that makes me fall in love with it over and over again.

Tomorrow I’m flying to Istanbul, so next outfitpost will be in front of the Hagia Sophia (or well, some other location in Istanbul will do too). So excited!
