Collage: Winter Wools

This collage made my wrists cry but makes my brain so happy:

wool

1 coat ; 2 cardigan ; 3 jacket ; 4 mini skirt ; 5 dress (on sale!);
6 sweater ; 7 long skirt ; 8 cardigan ; 9 skimmer pant (on sale!)

I tried to find a variety of affordable (especially once they go on sale) items that contained around 40% or more wool that would be great for winter. So I pretty much wanted to include every single coat and jacket from Zara, but made myself only pick one. I hope my restraint was worth it. I sadly own none of these items, but absolutely adore every single piece (especially that coat and mini skirt). Happy shopping!
