Everything’s Coming Up Roses

I’ve always loved pastels, so I am actually pretty excited that they are everywhere recently! Specifically, pastel pinks are everywhere recently. I love the fact that they are having their moment in the months that are usually reserved for heavy, dark & rich colors. What I love even more, is that pastels are being matched with heavier textures, which makes them definitely cold-weather appropriate. But, what I love even more, is the fun that can be had mixing and matching soft, floaty feminine pastels with harsher and heavier Fall/Winter gear.

I love the floaty pink top I’m wearing – you can find it at Forever21 – it’s very girly, but less in-your-face than some other pink styles I’ve been seeing around lately.

However, if we’re talkin’ in-your-face pink, I’ll be honest. I am 100% dying for a pastel pink coat. I know, I know, I’m falling for a trend, but just gaze your eyes upon these beauties and try to tell me you wouldn’t wrap yourself up in one of them forever …

You’d think a pink coat would be aggressively girly, but the cool thing about these is that they’re being cut in masculine shapes so they’re a little bit feminine, but also a little bit badass – my favorite way to mix and match!

Would you wear this trend?

Flower Power

Howdy! It’s been a little while guys & I apologize, but things have just been so busy! I hope you’ve all been making lemonade out of the lemons that is this weather! And I hope everyone had a wondrous holiday weekend too!

Anyway, despite the muggyness, today was a bright, flowery day for me – sometimes when the weather isn’t so great, you gotta bring your own sunshine.

Today, I wore two of my favorite items of clothing ever – black skinny jeans (everyone needs to own at least two pairs, in my opinion!) and my favorite ever floral kimono. I don’t even remember where my jeans are from, probably Topshop or Asos, and I got my kimono from one of my go-to boutiques, LF, years ago. I love Topshop’s jeans, they are so comfy and much less expensive than their designer friends.

Talk about double-flower-power! I chose this Chloe & Isabel flower necklace to top off my outfit. It was just the right accent for the bright kimono because it isn’t too big or too small (do I sound like Goldilocks yet?)

You may be thinking “Who wears a kimono in this kinda heat?!” Have no fear, though, I am not crazy! My beloved jacket is actually paper-thin. It’s like a silky, chiffon-y cloud wrapped around your body! No wonder why I love it so much :).

What’s your favorite item of clothing & why? Tell me all about it in the comment section!
