Barbie pink, deep plum, rich merlot, apricot blush …
This is one of those combinations that would’ve been a big “fashion don’t” back in the day, but I’m loving it!
This bright coat is special to me … an old hand-me-down from my mother who passed away. She was my favorite shopping buddy and I miss her every day. I started this blog three years ago when she was sick as a fun distraction from the more serious stuff in life and sometimes I like to think of it as her parting gift to me. The coat is big bit on me, which is ironic since Mom was a tiny thing. In her older years though, she had developed the Mary Kate & Ashely philosophy of fit, the bigger the better!
I paired the coat with what I call my “sweater of the season” (this lace-up style is really on trend right now), my favorite cropped flare black pants (Hudson Mia Raw Hem), and my new boots and Kate Spade bag. I thought the top knot was a good balance with the oversized coat. And I added my favorite sunglasses, lipstick, and new Kendra Scott earrings!
I’ve had my eye on this pretty wall for awhile but no outfit ever really seemed like a good fit. This worked out beautifully though! I think I’ll come back to the this pretty mural in the springtime too.
Another fun wall in my neighborhood!
My fav look from last week was Mary Murane’s chic boho-inspired look ….
I told her that I pinned the #$%& out of it! Hee!
