My dear fashionistas and travellers, how are you today? I think this winter has been the mildest for us so far, there was no snowfall that you have to admire. This year, we were alarmed by the Corona virus, which put us all in danger, I sincerely hope that the number of patients will be reduced and that a vaccine and adequate drugs will be found that will reduce the fatal outcome.
As I prepare for the Belgrade Tourism Fair, this year I will be the Destination Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt, which is also the partner country of this year’s 42nd Belgrade Tourism Fair. If you are passing by, drop by the booth of the Arab Republic of Egypt to visit me and to talk about Egypt from February 20 to 23, and I would especially like to invite all those who are able to attend a special conference – a roundtable where Serbian journalists will show their sightings of Egypt. The roundtable will be held on February 22 starting at 12 am in Hall 4 (large conference room). I sincerely hope to see you soon! Drop by and say hello! 🙂
Today I am sharing with you an interesting fashion outfit post where you will have the opportunity to see the way I have combined one of the most fashionable pieces in the world right now – a leather coat. When you mention leather clothing, men first come to mind with some good leather jackets, of different lengths and models, but they are less common with leather coats, because sometimes they are not practical. Hand-to-heart, a leather coat requires a little more care and is not a practical piece of clothing if you have a lot of business to do during the day.
Fortunately, I took a day off before the hustle and bustle of meetings about organizing the Belgrade Tourism Fair to take pictures and write down some of my impressions of this outfit. In collaboration with my longtime fashion blog friend – Burberry, today I am able to show you one “eternal” piece from their new Spring-Summer 2020 collection. When I was picking outfits from the new collection, I tried to be unusual and authentic. Having been cooperating for over three years, I was able to feel the beauty of their famous gabardine, but this year I opted for a slightly different material – leather.
Because of my height, I have become a big fan of over-the-knee coats because I think the longer coats would “eat” me and I would look visually much lower. When you are wearing a leather garment you have to carefully consider the fact that you have to keep an eye on the weather forecast. The leather is very sensitive material and does not have good waterproof abilities, so it is important that you wear leather clothing in dry weather conditions, as some leather types may have water stains (most often in the case of velour type of leather).
Believe me, I learned this the hard way when I ruined my new velour leather trench at FIRST wearing because a terrible downpour hit me. Because the bright and light colour of the trench, dark rain stains remained on it. I wore it a couple of times so, after I painted it in navy colour, don’t ask better how it ended… I’m so sorry for that coat I still keep it in a special dust bag hanging in the closet, I’m just sorry to throw it away…
With this particular coat, the rain would not bother so much because it is a stronger calf box, this skin type is resistant, it is a little heavier, but it is of good quality. This coat is dark colour, so any traces of rain drops would not be easily seen on the surface. I stayed consistent with myself so I combined this “avant-garde” fashion piece with classic trousers and a turtle-neck collar sweater.
I have to admit that my only challenge was choosing the right shoes. First, I had some basic idea in my head that this coat should be combined with classic boots, but in the end my sneakers that I bought a few years ago in an outlet suddenly beat that first idea. I haven’t worn them for years, just tidied them up and placed them on my shoe shelf until they literally fell on my head today… I thought it wouldn’t be a bad thing for this fashion combination to get some casual note and make the combination not too serious.
I sincerely hope that I was able to bring out this iconic piece today. I may not be the Matrix, but it turned out nicely in the end, following my urban elegance style. See you in a couple of days with a new story, it might be interesting to do some cross-section of travel and make one short cross-section of the destinations I visited in 2019. I would love to hear your opinion and if you can give me some ideas.
There were some plans for new adventures in Asia earlier this year, but travel was delayed until the alarm because of Coronavirus disease, because tourism organizations did not want to put us bloggers at risk. I am try to organize some new journeys and I promise you will read some interesting stories on Mr.M blog, so I will do my best to organize something unusual and to please my dear readers with some interesting letters from some unusual parts of Africa and Europe.
