A few weekends ago I travelled with my friends to Amsterdam. I didn't know what to expect with the weather so I packed layers of easy things that could all go together - my obvious choice was just about everything black. All of these pieces are things that I've had in my closet but the jacket is a NEW favorite. I saw it in Zara when I first arrived in Madrid and knew that I would eventually go back to get it. (I had to wait until it got cold to justify it in my head).
I was initially drawn to the shape of the coat (it has a cape-like feeling and hood) but soon loved it for its warmth. The jacket comes in this black as well as a really pretty grey (that I'm trying to convince my friend to buy). The weather here has quickly changed and it is FREEZING so I have been wearing the jacket often! I don't think I'm quite used to the cold yet because by freezing I mean 55 degrees -- but for Madrid, thats chilly!
The other parts of my outfit include, black Supergas, 7 for all Mankind leggings, a cashmere sweater from Aqua, and my favorite Mango bag.
