This cute 1960s A-line vintage coat could be considered one of my best finds. Most of the time, vintage coats from charity shops are too big for me but this one fits me well like it was especially hand-tailored for my body. It's just roomy enough to layer a wide variety of clothes underneath according to the climate. Versatility is key when having to deal with a four-season climate and if there's one thing I can do to avoid over-consumption, it's to make sure that my clothes can me worn all year long instead of having a different set of clothes for each season. A three-season wardrobe is probably more realistic since summer and its high temperatures could be quite limitative sometimes. As I am looking at these pictures while writing this post, I can't believe how alien it feels to see green grass because everywhere around me is now covered with snow. This winter's going to be a long one, I'm afraid.
