If there’s ever a competition for watching the reruns of FRIENDS then I’d win hands down! My TV lives, eats, breathes nothing but FRIENDS, it’s always on in the background irrespective of any eye balls being pinned on it or not! I have a special place for FRIENDS (just like most of us), I feel it’s so much better than watching a lot of other shitty things that either give me a headache or make me feel terrible! No, I mean don’t get me wrong, there some amazing series out there too but if I ever want to feel happy after a bad day, I turn to FRIENDS and now I am smiling! If you actually notice, FRIENDS as a show was way ahead of it’s time! At least to an Indian teenager like me it was and that is why it did not make much sense back then. Anyone else feel the same? It’s only much later that I began relating to the storyline, the emotions, the jokes and in no time fell in love with every character in the series. Now since the time I started my blog I’ve begun paying close attention to everyone’s style and certain details. In FRIENDS although Rachel was the ‘fashionista’, Phoebe really was the one who stood out for me! I absolutely loved her bohemian style mixed with a vintage vibe and her accessories were always one of it’s kind. If you watch some episodes closely, Phoebe has killed it by making fashion statements so effortlessly that some actually went on to become a trend later on. She loved her maxi dresses, bright colors, big fat slouchy bags, stacked rings, statement jewelry pieces and her adoration for florals was unhidden. So when I received this dark floral winter jacket it reminded me of Phoebe’s long winter coats and her floral obsession.
Who says florals can only be worn on warmer days by the beach with a margarita in your hand? Darker floral hues are perfect for the winters/fall and also whenever you want them to be. Although there are certain colors we love and stand out in specific seasons, I personally do not limit myself. I don’t mind flaunting bright shades in summers AND winters, I mean if you love a color the seasons shouldn’t stop you from wearing it! Florals is a versatile print which can be experimented with bright shades and darker moody hues based on the changing season. This particular coat had the perfect balance of dark background with a pop of neon pinks here and there. You can pair this with almost everything; if you want to keep it casual, pair it with a plain white t-shirt and light blue jeans, which by the way was my second option. But I really liked the olive colored dress with the coat and it was perfect on the confused weather day where it was warm and kind of chilly too.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, thanks for stopping by. Have a great day ahead!
