Styling a Puffer Coat | Winter Marshmallow
I feel like it's too late for this post seeing that it's now become warm in Macau again. These images were taken a few weeks ago when it was unexpectedly freezing out here. If you must know, Winter in Macau doesn't necessarily mean temperature falling down below 10 degrees so when that happened, and mind you, consistently for a couple of days, I decided I needed a puffer jacket or coat for that matter, finally having a reason to own one.
Don't fret, I didn't break the bank for this one as I know puffer jackets can be quite pricey. However this one was on sale so I grabbed the second last pair on the sale racks of Bershka without thinking twice, went straight to the cashier and paid. It's not so often you find quality puffer jackets for a steal price you know and if I were living in a city where temperature really goes down, I'm willing to invest in a really expensive one. But since I only need a puffer occasionally, then this is definitely a great deal.
Speaking of sale, I am going to film a Chinese New Year Sale Shopping Haul Video for my youtube channel soon, where I will show you guys the stuff that I got when I raided the sale racks of the nearest fast fashion stores we have here in Macau and Hong Kong so watch out for that!
Moving on to the styling part of this post, I just wanted a relaxed, casual outfit for that day so I threw on this mustard yellow joggers with side buttons that I kept close to keep the cold from seeping in (though it was kind of useless to be honest) and this zip-up ribbed top that I found lying around when I was cleaning my room one day. I'm not sure to whom does it belong to, I'm guessing it's my aunt's back from when she first came to Macau and she was (sorry to say this...) still a lot smaller in size. We'd always shared rooms until she left and went back to the Philippines for good so she probably left this behind among the other winter clothes that we have donated to charity.
Anyways, I kept the colour palette contained with black sneakers, sunglasses, and this velvet Off-White bag with yellow utility strap.
I probably won't be able to wear this puffer again until next Winter but who knows, it might get cold again come end of February. Macau's weather is so unpredictable you just can never be too sure. For now, I leave you with this set.
P.S. My first ever "how to style" video is going up on youtube tomorrow at 11:00AM Macau time so make sure you're tuned in!
