To me, it seems as if coats always come in the same old block colours: red coats, bottle green coats, black coats, camel coats, navy coats. I’ve always been on the hunt for interesting coats in more exciting colours, prints and textures. For example, right now I am looking for a bright yellow coat, a baby blue coat, geometric printed coats and a duo/tri-tone fur textured coat. It seems so hard to find these sorts of coats without breaking the bank. So needless to say that when I saw this coat on ASOS I happily (and impulsively) snapped it up. Finally, a coat in a print. Now to look for that yellow coat and tri-toned fur coat as well..

      thank you ester! i was so excited to see it on asos, there was a point in time where my size went out of stock and a pang of regret hit me – it came back in stock again and i snapped it up right away.

    i also bought a yellow coat last year but i think it’s too warm for it now ;(

      oh, where did you find this wonderful piece of yellow from? i would most definitely like to own one.

      thanks natali :-)

  • kirbybee

    Loving the classic colour combo and the extra radness that ASOS gem adds to the look. Gotta love an impulse purchase that works! Geometric print coats are so great, and such an easy way to add a little interest to a look.

    Oh Connie, looking for yellow again!
    I guess they’re going to look great these season.
    Growing out your fringe seems to be going well!

      the fringe catastrophe looks better than it really is. every gush of wind sends the bobby pins flying!

      Thank you Lydia! It was a surprise gift from my boyfriend for my 21st :-)

  • Siarra

    Oh my goodness, I’ve never even commented here before but can I just say that you bear a striking resemblance to Keira Knightley here? The angular jaw and face structure, the petite figure AND your new hairstyle make you two uncannily similar!

    • http://twitter.com/kisforkani Connie Cao

      This is the first doppleganger comment I’ve received since my new hair – so no, I have not heard that before!

  • Adeline Yang

    i seriously love your coat & dress! they’re perfect for each other. and your previous post was absolutely darling <3 ;)

    • http://twitter.com/kisforkani Connie Cao

      thank you adeline :’-) it was by chance i put these two patterns together after seeing them hang next to each other in my wardrobe!

  • Maxine

    i’ve been following your blog for quite some time now, so seeing your new hair, I just had to comment! I love the new hair Kani! You look beautiful!

    • http://twitter.com/kisforkani Connie Cao

      thank you maxine! i’ve said it so many times but i still feel very odd without a fringe. only time will help settle the feeling, but i am embracing the change :-)

  • Hannah

    Love the outfit, you look so different without a fringe, it really suits you!

      thank you hannah for the encouragement to continually persevering to grow it out. i always have the urge to go back to old times everytime i see someone with bangs!

  • Diva In Me

    I’m sure parting with bangs can be a little hard at first and even seeing you with a different hair style take me some time to get use to it. It gives you a very different look actually. You look more settled and sophisticated. I like this red heels. It’s gorgeous and definitely matches your Alma Bag =) We definitely seldom bump into printed coat but it is definitely more popular these days. You look good in it =)
