Today’s Outfit: Wearing My Everyday Staple, the Parka Jacket!

When talking about staple items, the words that came to my mind are mostly a white crisp shirt, tailored black pants and skirt, little black dress and also a black t-shirt such as the one I’m wearing in this today’s outfit. Never have I considered a utilitarian looking parka jacket, especially in green army colour, would be a staple item. But if anything, the last couple of days have proven me exactly that. Since the weather is a bit unpredictable, rain and shine with no direction what’s coming next, this lightweight parka is a must-bring item for me. Whenever the weather becomes a bit chilly, I would just put this on. It’s still even bearable to be worn on a normal day. Plus, it has a hoody, so I don’t have to worry about light pouring rain if I have to walk short distance. Also, the colour green is not hard to work with as long as you keep it within the same mood – keep it muted and don’t mix it with bright colours.

This bag is also currently my everyday bag. A friend of mine even suggested that this handbag is more suitable as a weekender bag since it’s so huge. My favourite part is the zipper that you can open all the way until the end, giving a wider access should I want to insert my laptop or documents.
