Another day to be grateful for! I hope you guys had a great and fun weekend. I did enjoy mine; It was busy, fun and productive.
Let’s talk about this oversized two tone trench coat! It’s definitely an eye catcher, and has also been a conversation starter whenever I wear it. If you need a one of a kind oversized trench coat this Spring, this might be it. This trench coat features an oversized, longline silhouette, V-neckline, wide, notched lapels, drop sleeves with fitted cuffs, double breasted button closure, layered design at top, pockets at sides, and tie belt at waist. I love it! You can style it over jeans, dress, shorts… you name it! It’s such a versatile trench coat and very stylish. I had fun styling it a few weeks ago with these jeweled wedges gladiators, also shown here, and I love how this outfit has turned out. It’s fun, classy and edgy. I can tell you that this two tone trench coat will be on heavy repeats this Spring.
I have to share this amazing Style Event Sale Shop Bop is having with you! A few of these beautiful pieces are on my wish list; I love their new Spring collection and it’s always a plus when you can take advantage of a good sale. So, if you’re looking for some nice Spring dresses, they are currently on SALE up to 25% Off with code: STYLE.
We shouldn’t have to break the bank to look good… I’m sure you have read or heard of this phrase before, but I wanted to let today’s look serve as a reminder of that mantra.
There are many ways to elevate your look instantly, especially your lounge wears, but one of the easiest ways to do so is to keep it monochrome or to throw a nice coat or jacket on it.
To elevate this loose fit soft brushed fleece white V-neck sweatshirt and pants set, all I had to do is add this wool blend long white coat, and keep my accessories in the same color scheme. Truth be told, this sweatshirt set is beautifully designed and you can’t go wrong whether you dress it up or down. I have worn the top untucked with denim and white sneakers and it was simple yet stylish and beautiful… At least, so I have been told. 🙂
When I was putting this outfit together in the late Winter, my intent was to create a clean and polished look without feeling the need to reach out for my most classic or expensive pieces. A monochromatic white or black outfit will usually give you that effect, but it’s also about the choice of accessories and shoes. You would want to keep everything classy and simple, whether you choose to wear a nice pair of heels, a cute pair of sneakers or your cold weather boots for comfort without losing style.
As always, thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
I’m one of those people who don’t necessary wear their new clothes right after they purchased them. It’s not for any particular reason, but again it could be for any reasons you may find in the book; plus I’m not too keen on returning items, unless I really need to. Well, I said all that just to say that this particular dress is one of those pieces that have been sitting in my closet for over a year now.
Some people may argue that if you haven’t worn something for that long, you should have gotten rid of it… which is a de-cluttering rule of thumb that I agree with. However, there’s always an exception to every rule, right? 🙂
Now that I got that out of the way, let’s talk about the dress, shall we?
I wouldn’t say it was love at first sight, but I was intrigued by the unique design. The color blocking combination has also drawn my attention. The dress looked bossy and oversized on the model; it wasn’t a style I would usually be drawn to, but I have been stepping out my comfort zone a lot more lately, and I knew I would make it my own. If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know my love for classy and unique pieces. Even though I don’t completely shy away from the trends, I love that this dress is a combination of both.
As I mentioned earlier, the color blocking colors work for my taste, but I’m also pleased with the rushing details in the sleeves and across the front to the side of the dress. The overall fit and quality of the dress is amazing. It’s lightweight and breathable enough for Spring and will certainly take you into a cooler season as well.
There are so many stylish ways this dress can be styled: With sneakers or boots, with flats or heels. You can dress it up or down, you can layer it up in fall and Winter… but I chose to style it with these Shoedazzle jeweled gladiators wedges. These shoes have been a hit when I shared them first on my Instagram! Such a beautiful and statement pair of shoes. I love them and I think they compliment the dress in an elegant and classy way with a hint of glamour. What do you think of this outfit?

As always, thank you for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day!
It’s fair to say that Spring has been in full effect these past few days. Even with the intermittent rains and rain showers, we were lucky enough to experiment some bright and sunny days. When the temperatures hit the 70’s, you don’t want to be the one missing out on the beautiful weather, so shoulders and legs were out on the streets, and this green floral jumpsuit is definitely one to be taken out for a spin.
The floral prints and silk fabric are such a breath of fresh air; and I love that the jumpsuit is lightweight and breathable. You probably can’t notice it, but I purposefully wore the jumpsuit backward to create an open collar line and a little bit of an off-the shoulder vibe. I love how it turned out; and it also gives a pants set vibe, which many have commented on as a set. Best of both worlds right? As far as accessories go, I went with white and off-white with my bag and shoes to compliment the underlying neutral tone of the jumpsuit, but most importantly to keep them at the minimal. These ASOS woven cross strap heeled sandals complimented the bamboo stripes of my bag beautifully. This is a nice Spring outfit for brunch or a Sunday outing; and one of my favorite recent thrifted pieces. Yes, you read it right! I thrifted this brand new Fashion Nova beautiful number from a friend. The jumpsuit runs at least one size large, but I made it work, and I’m glad I snagged it. What do you think? Are you ready for more Spring looks? I picked a few similar floral jumpsuits for you to shop from, below.
Thank you for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend,
