Budget Buy – The Big Olive

Budget buy is a new section where I will share my favourite picks when it comes to value for money. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it will always be really low priced. It can also be more expensive stuff, but with long lasting qualities that over time gives you much for the bucks.

The first budget find that I’m adding to basket comes in one of my all-time favourite colours olive green. A classic colour that never goes out of style. And it works all year round.

When spotting this long, thick overshirt at Zara I wasn’t sure about how good it actually was. To be honest it didn’t look that special on the hanger.

It was first when trying it on that it’s true powers became obvious.

A perfect companion for a more relaxed everyday look it can serve as a thin jacket as well as a shirt tunic. The corduroy gives it a more dressed down and countryside feeling that I like. But you can for sure wear it with more dressy shoes and accessories if you want. So it’s very versatile.

It also comes with two large pockets. An essential feature when your phone is basically an extension of yourself.

Since I’m really into the “supersize me” strategy I wanted it to be as long and voluminous as possible. So I went for the XL. I’m usually a size small.

The photos btw are taken at Eccleston Yards, a nice little shopping area in Fitzrovia, London. Small independent shops and restaurants in a lovely setting is always a winner in my world. Will for sure go back soon and take a closer look!
