with a cool outerwear winter is not a danger to us

 Winter attracts me only because of the fact that 1) ski-season has finally come and 2) because of the fact, that I can wrap myself in my oversized jackets, masculine coats or baggy parkas.
These 3 outerwear shapes are those I adore and gonna wear for ever.
I adore this wool/acryl/cashmere mix oversized coats that look more like an oversized cardigan or jacket, that's why they're  funnily called coatdigans (love such words!). They make you feel completely relaxed and look very edgy. I pair this kinda jackets with a big scarf wrapped around my neck, skinny jeans and heels or biker boots. Of course, they do more for autumn.
Picked few of my favorite ones this season:


1. Kenzo 2. Isabel Marant 3. M Missoni 4.J.Crew 5. Thakoon addition

Who doesn't own at least one elegant, masculine-like knee-high coat? I adore them. And wanna have them in every possible color. They are my forever favorites as well, and could be worn almost with everything: with heels or boots, skirts or jeans.


1.Chalayan 2.Haider Ackermann 3,5. Proenza Schouler 4.Carven

And, my 3rd most favorite outerwear ever - parkas. They are forever. Adore tiny girls being muffled in an oversized parka with a big fur hood. That looks so chic, so attractive.

1,5. Altuzarra 2.Ermanno Scervino 3. A.P.C. 4. Roksanda Ilincic

Warm up!

O, Barbara bonita

Barbara Martelo is my forever love, when it comes to personal style or a fashion-muse. I've been her devoted fan for many years.
I love her whole, from head to toe. This woman never wears make-up, has amazing hair, perfect skinny legs and ...style, that is so Barbara, so Martelo. I love that she's neither a huge fan of herself, nor those well PRed persons in fashion. It's obviously clear, that she is a good specialist, amazing stylist, and she doesn't need all those interviews or glamorous photoshoots (never heard her voice though!).
It's commonly known, that one loves a person's style if it's somehow similar to that of his/her. Of course, I see a lot of common preferences in style, when I explore Barbara's looks through internet: she is a huge fan of black, she loves heels and skinnies, she loves total black outfits and she rocks them like nobody does! She completes them with any bright detail like a red grunge leather jacket, leopard boots, leather details, etc. I adore her refined sense of simple, not overdone, yet stunning and very personal style.
If we are used to call this a "casual chic", then Barbara is a queen of casual chic, without any doubt.

The only woman, who inspires me this much and whom I tend to copy from time to time, is Barbara Martelo.
