Bus Route

sandro coat

Love these trousers. I originally paired them with a black coat but much prefer the red. There’s enough black going on with everything else.

platform shoes

Coat: Sandro. Trousers: Zara. Try Topshop, Each x Other or reds from NastyGal.  Platform loafers: Mango (dye them black). Bag: Coach. Shades: Ray-Ban. Lipstick: Topshop ‘Beguiled’ (so good). 
It’s funny because the trousers can go from preppy to retro mod/punk depending on how you wear them.

The loafers worn with them are so damn comfortable.  You saw them before in this cafe post? I walked a lot that day including catching the bus per the above and you feel zero problems with ’em.  They come in white now but I say wear them as is then dye them black later (two for one).

ps.  A few weeks ago I was thinking of selling this coat in my shop.  I would’ve been kicking myself.

pps. How gorge is Natalia from Friday’s post below?  Her coat with those sunglasses is so good.

    Love the outfit and adore the Mango loafers, but is it possible to dye them at home or better to have it professionally done? Thanks Karen!!

      I’m sure you could but I wouldn’t. I like pro jobs for something like shoes that will be worn a lot.

    • Mara says:

      I really appreciate that you take the time to answer! Thanks a lot for your answer Karen and hugs from Italy!
