Oversized Maroon Dreams

Morning, dear glamistas!

A couple of weeks ago I received in the mail my latest acquisition and I was so excited to show it to you all! I don’t have to hide it anymore and you will probably get tired of seeing this beautiful maroon oversized coat from ASOS popping up on my Instagram and other social media, but I just happen to be in love 😉

When I was young(er), going shopping was a special family tradition for me, my mum and my sister. Twice a year, the three of us would drive to one of the biggest outlets in Madrid and would go on a shopping spree until our feet hurt and our hands couldn’t hold any more bags. Like literally.

I was always very excited about these little consumerist trips to a place where you could get lost in the well-known high-street names (Zara, Mango, Pull&Bear) as well as in less trendy but higher-end shops that nobody in my high-school had heard of.

We would leave the outlet at the end of the day, both excited and exhausted, with the boot full of awesome previous season and factory defect clothes bought at a ridiculous price tag.  And we always managed to find some original statement pieces that were the envy of our friends, our mission accomplished 😉

For some reason, I had this habit of saving my favourite purchases from these trips in my wardrobe for a special occasion. I would wait for weeks on end before releasing THE jeans, or THE top, or THE shoes that would make me feel like I could run the world if so I wished. For me, it was like saving the last bite of your favourite meal for last… Did you ever do the same, glamistas?

It’s funny how we change with time though, as nowadays when I get my hands on a new gem I cannot wait to put it on and flash it before the eyes of the entire world, like I’ve done with this cutie here, ha! 🙂

This oversized masculine cocoon coat is stealing all the spotlight and rightly so 😉 ASOS calls it “berry”, but I think maroon is definitely more like it. I have styled it with all black pieces to enhance the striking colour and add a casual masculine vibe to the whole look. This gorgeous black Dr Martens bag and shoe dupes from Primark complete the ensemble.

What do you guys think? Do you also feel the love? Did you like my new friend the Cocoon Coat?

Have a fantastic Sunday! Xoxo

      A statement coat is the key. Although a nice top knot is always a nice casual touch 😉

      I totally fell for the colour too, and the fact that it was oversized was a plus 😉

    I definitely need to find an oversized blazer/ coat to add to my wardrobe for the upcoming Spring months! I love that you’ve created a top knot with this look too! It really ties the whole look together IMO <3

    1. Saida

      26th February 2017 at 11:46 pm

      Totally, I think an oversized coat is a good staple in every wardrobe (not necessarily in a bright colour!) You can just throw it on when the weather is iffy and sorted!
      I had pictured this coat with a top knot since the beginning, so I couldn’t resist when the time came to snap these shots, hehehe!

      Thanks once again for reading :*

      Aww, thanks Kit you are so kind. My colour is supposed to be grey, depending on the light you see different hues, but this is the post on how I got that hair style, in case you are interested 🙂

      Thanks for your visit and have a fab day!

    I love the colour —wintery, but still bright enough to add some life to the look, gorgeous!

    1. Saida

      26th February 2017 at 11:52 am

      That’s what I liked about it precisely! When shooting the pics it was actually warmish, but seeing that winter is staying for a few more weeks this is my go-to choice for my colour fix 😛

    Algo que no has comentado es que muchas veces nos compràbamos lo mismo y nos tirábamos semanas peleándonos para no coincidir. Todo esto te lo digo porque: ¿me dejas que me compre tu mismo abrigo? 🙂

      Muy cierto, hahahahaha!!! Por supuesto que te lo puedes pillar, por todas las veces que he pillado yo tus ideas 😛
