When I was a little girl I loved to wear pink, playing with My Little Ponies and covering my face in glitter. Conversely, my favourite hat was a fireman’s helmet and I joined in the roughhousing games with the boys in the playground. I’m still somewhat boyish in my demeanor; I wish I was elegant and refined, but I’m not. Trying to change one’s fundamental personality is pointless, so I don’t bother. I also haven’t grown out of my predilection for pink and this coat from Zara immediately caught my eye. A spring coat is very handy this time of year, as it covers a lot of bases. If I wore denim, I’d wear this coat with a pair of mum-jeans and Stan Smith trainers. But that’s not my style, so I’ll stick with a flirty skirt (also from Zara) and platforms.
