This Week’s Favourites – Checkered Clothes

This Week’s Favourites – Checkered Clothes


Rain, rain, rain please stop falling. Seriously I can’t take this rain and grey weather any longer.  I feel so much better when the sun is out. Even when it’s freezing cold outside, as long as the sun is out life is good. People smile at you and you even may end up chatting with a complete stranger, while waiting at the bus stop. With me it is usually retired people who decide to chat with me. I don’t know why, but it’s true! And I actually enjoy those often quirky conversations. After all, older people have life long wisdom and funny stories to share.

Even though it is cold and rainy I’m already on the hunt for lighter clothes. This checkered coat caught my eye on the Top Shop page. I love how they have combined a classic checked trench coat with the bows on the sleeves. The best thing about it is though, that it is from Top Shop’s petite range. I didn’t think twice and ordered it and absolutely love it. I’m already wearing it all the time although it is definitely too cold for it as it is more of a coat for spring weather.

I feel that checkered clothes always ad that classic touch to an outfit. I’m wearing a cropped hooded sweater, a white shirt, boyfriend jeans with sneakers. The coat makes the whole look less casual.





Coat – Top Shop petite (size UK 4)
Jumper – Petite Cropped Hoodie – blue  (size UK 4)
Shirt –  Uniqlo (size xxs)
Jeans – Bershka (size UK 6)
Sneakers – Vans (size UK 2.5)

I absolutely agree with you, this check coat is so lovely with the details! I have already started to refresh my wardrobe too and I have bought a check baker boy hat and a check skirt. Looking forward the spring! 🙂
Have a lovely day,

Wenn ich den karierten mantel an dir sehe, würde ich ihn am liebsten sofort nachkaufen… Ich liebe die Schleife-Details an den Ärmeln. Die ganze Outfitzusammensetzung ist sehr gelungen und sehr inspirierend. Du hast einen tollen Geschmack! Layering on the point! Liebe Grüsse Martina

Ahh, danke dir Süße! Ich hab mich auch sofort in diesem Mantel verliebt. Als er dann noch in Top Shop’s petite collection war, gab es kein zurück und ich musste zuschlagen 🙂 xx
