One thing that’s been on my wishlist all winter has been a short puffer jacket. I actually ordered an olive one online earlier this year, but it was way too big, looked ridiculous, and I returned it. After that I figured they weren’t for me, but still continued to search for the perfect one (because when you have something in mind, it’s hard to get rid of the thought!). When I came across this one in such a gorgeous coral color, I had to have it.
My favorite thing about this jacket is that the coral color is so unique. The coat is actually really warm for cooler days, but the color is SO spring forward and gorgeous. If you haven’t noticed, most of my clothing is neutral, so the jacket actually goes with a lot of different outfits. It’s definitely more of a statement piece, but it also comes in a bunch of other colors (including black and a beautiful light blue) if you don’t want to be so bold.
It’s currently Carnival (also known as “Fasching”) season here in Germany, which is why you see a bunch of colorful banners behind me in these photos. Basically, there’s a ton of different festivals and parades throughout the weeks leading up to lent. Everyone is in costume and it’s usually a lot of fun (I did have an uncomfortable experience last year though, you can read about that here). I especially love the colorful decor – most towns around us have banners strung along alleyways like this, and it just puts me in a good mood. My sister is visiting in less than 2 weeks and we plan on attending some of the festivities together! I cannot wait.
