Oh Sunday, I love you very much.
“Easy as a Sunday morning” they say and I can’t agree more on that. I try not to do much on a Sunday and to embrace being unproductive. For someone like me, it is not an easy thing. I can easily feel guilty not getting things done and I am sure we’ve all been there. But it is important to take time out, to rest, reset, think, and in the end, be more productive and efficient.
It’s the perfect time to cook – especially pastry – take extra time for yourself, read, go on a walk, watch a movie, play board games or just to listen to a good old vinyl, laid on your bed staring at the roof. Happiness.
I try to not wear makeup on Sundays. Not that I have any problem not wearing makeup the other days, but on Sundays, I just can’t be bothered. Same goes with my clothes. All I look for is comfort and warmth which often ends up with a pair of jeans and sneakers. For the rest, I really don’t try much and if the colours are coordinated, that’s a winner!
Here is one of my go to outfit for a wintery Sunday. The tailored coat is one of my favourite. I like its clean and sharp lines. It can upgrade the most basic silhouette and make every outfit look really put together. This coat is from Comptoir des Cotonniers: it is not in collection anymore but you can find a similar one here. When it is very cold, I can layer it with a men’s Uniqlo vest to keep me nice and toasty.
Underneath, I am wearing a very old pair of jeans. I should probably treat myself to a new one but it is so stretchy and comfortable… The mohair jumper is from the H&M “premium quality” range and it’s a dupe of the Acne Studios Dramatic Mohair, for a fraction of the price! The sneakers are from New Balance, my go to brand for sneakers. They are really comfortable and I always get compliments when I wear them: bonus point.
I always keep accessories to a minimum, as I am not a big fan. The bag is a Trio Bag from Céline. It holds way more than it looks like and has a cross body strap… sold! The hat is something you really need to be considering if you are not already wearing one. Apart from the stylish look it can give you, it keeps you warm (which is nice) and can fix a bad hair day (which is even nicer!). This hat is in cachemire and it’s from Cos.
And you, what is currently your go to Sunday look?
