Bright colours for winter

Portland has one of the strangest weathers I have ever encountered. One minute it's sunny and warm and the next it's absolute pouring rain. We captured these pictures right before the rain started and thank god no one got rained on.  This season I have become very drawn to coats. Mind you with the unpredictable weather up here in the Northwest that may not seem like a good idea at first. However I found that if I planned it right (and with help with an umbrella), it seems to work out just fine.
I recently acquired two really beautiful coats which I would love to show you. I am currently waiting on the second one and as soon as it arrives I will definitely do a blog post about them. What is your obsession in fashion this season so far?

Mustard yellow short coat borrowed from mum, Levi's ID curve skinny jeans, Frye's riding boots, YSL Arty ring and Balenciaga City bag in Anthracite.
Have a wonderful rest of the week and thank you for reading :)

At least you get sunny and warm once in a while, we only have grey and rain... :(

Love the yellow jacket, it's so cute! And it goes perfect with red. Nice combination.

Great minds think alike;-) have a similar coat in cobalt blue but I don't really know how to wear it. Yours is truly beautiful and so energizing in these winter days:-)

I also like wearing brights, but sometimes I get distracted and put all the neutrals on. LOL. Brights certainly stand out more.

Such a cute layered outfit! I like the bright yellow coat, so cheerful and it really pops with the red! :)

I'm in opposite seasons, so my current go-to is skirts and dresses, hehe! :)

Oh, tell me about it. Midwest weather is just like Northwest in that it's so bipolar. Monday was gorgeous and warm and the rest of the week was gloomy and bone-chilling! Gah. They say if you don't like Ohio weather, stick around, because it'll change haha.

Anyways, glad to hear that you got these lovely shots in before the downpour. Love the mix of bright colors--that jacket is so glam and I love those red boots. The layering is perfect! I've been obsessed with peacoats too. Just picked up a new one!

Have a great week!
