Jacket – Barbour, Bag – Coach, Boots – Topshop

Just a few things that’s become my everyday grab before wheeling the Chinawoman out to work. In fact, they’ve become this ‘shell’ I slip out from when I get home in the evening, then it’s go get a cup of tea and sit in front of the washing machine till the episode is over and the credits go up… and in the morning I just slap some ‘makeup’ on and slither back in. Pretty exciting crustacean I make I must say.

Khaki quilted Barbour jacket - Perfect light windbreaker; Coach suede bag (massive thanks to tcs & Coach) – Otherwise known as Mary Poppins bag, i.e fits the Canon camera so it must be magical (must try lamp…); and Topshop Ambush chelsea boots – best heel height for cycling! I’ve actually considered saving up for the Acne Pistols but I think the conclusion was that I prefer 103 kebabs for the money…

  8. These are some pretty sweet go-to items :)

    Ahh, the debate over fashion or food – like you, food always ends up winning for me and boy, is my stomach ever grateful for that.

  9. I’ve been looking to Barbour for a fall/winter jacket – nothing too long in length – is this one as warm as it appears? I know they’ve got a classic legacy for functional outerwear.

    And, hey, creatures of simple habit are the most harmless and the best of their kind. (At least, that’s what I use to validate myself) :)

  10. argh!! i’ve just fallen head over heels in love with that bag! does it still have a lot of structure when you hold it Shini? or does it sorta slouch in the middle?

    Yarrh there’s more structure than slouch but when you don’t put so much in it (i.e fat CAMERA) it hangs really nice! x

  25. Shini! i was so confused when I read “chinawoman” haha. good think i backlinked! Barbor has gotten so much more popular lately. I first heard about it from a fellow thesis student in college. He wore his grandfather’s hand-me-down barbor and I understood that it was a hunting/outdoorsey brand (i thought of Eddie Bauer). But I saw some of their women’s jackets for fall and I love the quilted fabrics. Great post!

    p.s. I’m so glad you didn’t fall victim to the Ipad trend. My family and I are all ASUS users too! ^_^

  28. HA! brilliant, kebabs instead of Acne, you put a smile on my face, sometimes food is really the be all and end all

    Gorgeous picks. Comfortable things tend to make me feel attractive! You can have more swagger in a pair of tough-sexy boots than a pair of high heels. That sounds a bit ‘pistols at dawn’, but you know what I mean ;)

    Nothing wrong with pistols at dawn! I have also discovered a love of cowboy since going to burning man in the desert :)

    Your boots are adorable (just purchased a similar pair myself, my lack of flat shoes was really killing me) but I am LOVING that jacket. Something about nylon quilting is oddly mesmerizing to me in a way that reminds me of being an Outdoor Warrior Queen. And I’m down for that.

    -Love always!
