Please, keep off the grass.



I'm wearing:

1. Fusion of two coats, Maison Martin Margiela for H&M.
2. Plaid shirt, from Zara.
3. Green basic t-shirt, from Zara.
4. Super skinny jeans in black, from Asos.
5. Green oxford shoes, from Pull & Bear.
6. Zebra socks, from Top Ten Korea.
7. Pokemon necklace, from Pokemon Center.
Get this look for $197+ on Lookastic: Black Skinny Jeans, Olive Crew-neck T-shirt, Charcoal Plaid Longsleeve Shirt, Grey Overcoat, and Brown Suede Derby Shoes
The weather has been crazy lately: raining all night, drizzling in the morning; unbearable heat and sunlight in the afternoon. It's quite terrible. But, I choose to look at the bright side and see this as a chance to wear my coats. This one's pretty special, it's the fusion of two different coats and it was created for the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M collaboration. It's oversized, longer on one side, has different textures for the two fabrics and it's a great piece to look at.

I layered the coat with a thin wrinkly plaid shirt and a viscose tee. My shoes are perfect for the colors of the coat and I wanted to spice them up by adding crazy zebra socks. When it comes to the jeans, as I always say, they're a nice balance to the oversized coat; I gotta make decisions like these, otherwise I could look like a midget. I'm only 5'8 ):

The necklace has a special place in my heart. During my trip to Tokyo, I went to the Pokemon Center to fulfill a childhood dream and I also ran into the action figures. I had to buy my favorite Pokemon, which is Espeon, and (cleverly) turned it into a necklace (it was originally a phone charm or a keychain or something). I know it may sound geeky but I'm not ashamed to say that I like Pokemon and I know their names. Espeon is cool and I don't care if y'all don't like him. Just kidding. Let me know what you think in the comment section, I really do care.

// El clima ha sido una locura últimamente: llueve toda la noche, chispea en la mañana; hay calor y sol insoportable en las tardes. Es una cosa horrible. Pero yo decido ver el lado amable y tomar esto como una oportunidad para usar mis abrigos. El que traigo es muy especial, es la fusión de dos abrigos diferentes y fue creado para la colaboración entre H&M y Maison Martin Margiela. Es extra-grande, más largo de un lado, tiene texturas distintas para las dos telas y es una gran pieza visual.

Usé capas para este atuendo: después del abrigo, hay una camisa a cuadros delgada y una playera de viscosa. Mis zapatos son perfectos para los colores del abrigo y quise darles un extra añadiendo calcetines de zebra. Cuando se trata de los jeans, como siempre digo, son un buen balance para tanta tela en el abrigo; tengo que tomar decisiones como estas, de lo contrario podría lucir como un enano. Sólo mido 1.73 ):

El collar tiene un lugar especial en mi corazón. Durante mi viaje a Tokyo, pasé al Centro Pokemon como forma de cumplir un sueño de toda la vida y también me topé con las figuritas de acción. Tuve que comprar a mi Pokemon favorito, que es Espeon, y (astutamente) lo convertí en un collar (antes era un adorno para el teléfono o llavero o algo). Sé que puede sonar ñoño pero no me avergüenza decir que me gusta Pokemon. Espeon está buena onda y no me importa si lo odian. Broma. Cuéntenme qué opinan en la sección de comentarios, en serio me importa.
 Love always,
Henry.
