Mini & Pink

_MG_4034

I can’t get enough of this pink trench!! Though this color may be trendy, I’ve been able to wear it through last season and this. And of course it’ll fit in with Spring. I paired it here with a mini houndstooth skirt. I overlooked the idea of pink and black paired, forgetting that they work so well together.

After I purchased this coat, this color pairing has become one of my favorites. I believe it’s because pink is such a bright feminine color while black and white are more subdued.

What’s your favorite colors to pair together? I also like purple and yellow¬† or pastels. And I’m quite excited for the Christmas because jewel tones will come out to play. The nostalgia of childhood memories is strong when anyone talks Christmas. Funny how I’ve completely jumped over Halloween and Thanksgiving. Two other fun holidays, but they just don’t quite live up to the lights, a winter wonderland and a warm fireplace.
Thanks for reading and Happy Friday Friends!

Dots – Undone // Banana Republic

_MG_1972

Banana Republic has done it again! I usually find myself scrolling pass the trousers section because their 00P are still big on my extra petite frame, but these were a head turner and more. They’re definitely a classic piece and so summery. I can see myself wearing these for many summers to come.

As I previously mentioned about their sizes, these trousers ran bigger than what their petite guide lists. And by “bigger”, the waist in these trousers were 3 inches wider. Since I loved them so much, I had them tailored to my normal 24″. I kept the hem as is because I choose to wear heels with them. But I am actually thinking of buying another pair just so I can have it hemmed to wear with flats. Decisions … Decisions ..

Since I purchased these on a deal, I had them tailored and the sale price + the tailor’s price, came out to the pant’s original cost. So in all, this was a great buy. I may wait for another deal though for that second pair.
What’s your take? Would you buy a second pair you LOVE to wear with flats on occasions like this? Comment below and let me know! ūüôā
Thank you for visiting! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

This year I participated in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (with just about every fashion lover under the sun) and bought these Halogen over the knee boots (one of the few purchases I made). And here I am wearing them for the first time since the purchase. I was waiting on a great piece to start it off with and this body skimming dress did wonders.
I love over the knee boots and the fact that they conceal more leg and let a sweater dress (or any mini skirt/dress) sit a little higher, giving you the feel of sexy without over revealing.
