Do It Yourself – On a Budget
It’s getting colder here in Sydney! Therefore I feel like I need to start showing ideas for creating chic warmer outfits on Fashion Blender. So, this post is my next outfit post which features my Blue Classic Burberry coat that I bought while I was in Shanghai attending one of their events.
This Burberry coat is what you call a boyfriend coat. So with that in mind I decided to dress it down for weekend wear and show my lovely readers how chic they can look whilst being comfortable. There is nothing worse than running around busy on the weekend and having sore feet AND/OR being cold. I have paired my Burberry blue boyfriend coat with my white Bassike top and a great pair of VINCE Leather track pants. Now you may remember these track pants suggested in a previous post? VINCE leather pants are quite expensive – however since I am always looking for a bargain on quality classic pieces that will last me a lifetime… I got mine on eBay.
Quite a few people have commented on my white ACNE STUDIOS Sneakers too. You can get the look for a fraction of the cost by searching for white sneakers on ShopStyle.
The main purpose of this outfit post was to show you that you can find some great colourful warm options for your casual winter wardrobe. Head to the end of this post for my QUALITY wool coat picks for keeping you warm. They are discounted heavily, which is one of the huge bonuses to living in Australia. We can buy coats when they are on sale. Every coat that I have picked is a great one – remember the Fashion Blender mantra of buying classic quality items that will last you season to season? That by no means means boring though!
