Breezy Parka

{Photos by Pom, wearing Choies parka Alexander Wang shoes, Zara trousers, ASOS beanie}

It's been a while since I've been excited over new clothes but this parka from Choies is different. Maybe it's because this is the perfect weather for it, maybe it's because this jacket is so versatile or maybe it's because I can just throw this jacket in the washing machine without having to worry.

I finally got my own cubicle at work so it's exciting. With the whole "no company is certain these days" I want to keep so that if something does happen, I can just grab my coat and never look back. But I do have 1 personal belonging in my cube: a photo of my loving family back home my basil plant because 1. Fresh basil leaves in my lunch is nice 2. If it ever starts to wilt I can just eat the entire plant in one sitting.
