Iconic Coat

IMG_8665-2

..I can’t enough of my current favorite coats right now! It’s beginning to warm up but not fast enough, which allows me to enjoy my favorite spring piece. In honor of this year’s late spring bloom and the semi cold breeze, I’ve paired this jacket with a leopard knit. The two compliment each other very well I think.

Now, are the reoccurring pinks screaming louder? It’s been present in coats, handbags and dancing on my lips in the past few posts, but all for a good reason. It’s so versatile and  I can’t get enough of the pastel hue, like on this darling handbag (a Chloe dupe).

Ohhh Spring … I’m always in awe of all the blooms as I’m sure every floral loving fiend is as well. Though they are flowers I’ve seen before, the beauty never ceases to amaze me.
What is that one piece you find yourself wearing season after season because of it’s iconic stature?

Spring’s Gingham & Pastel Trend

_MG_8856

It’s definitely not new news when Spring is around the corner and pastel colors are coming out to play. I’ve seen lots of it hit the runway for Spring 2018 and which has been labeled ice cream pastel hues. And you just don’t say no to these sweet treats .. ever. But aside from dessert talk, I almost find these hues to be a closet staple. Granted, not all of these colors work for four seasons, but this pastel pink fits right in.

With this pretty pink I’ve paired it with another spring trend, gingham. I see this print pop up every year and I don’t disagree. It’s a closet staple in my humble opinion and it works well as a statement piece when you put it together with a simple, chic outfit.

And sometimes, you compliment the bag with red lips. I’m always pulled into the 50’s when red and gingham are placed next to each other. The retro vibes are flying high!
What are your thoughts on 2018’s Spring Trends?
