ALL GROWED UP ....


HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE !!!
GUESS WHAT ? I ACTUALLY HAVE GROWN-UP CLOTHES ;) ALTHOUGH MY WONDERFUL MOM CALLS THIS MY 'ELVIS' COAT ;)  - THOUGH IN HER DEFENSE I WAS WEARING MY GIANT WHITE SUNNIES AT THE TIME.
WHEN I SAW THE STYLEUNDERDOG , CREATOR OF STYLE NATION, HOO-YA !
 ( One of my newest favorite fashionista's ~ I compare her to SJP, effortlessly chic) ~
SPORTING A CREAM TRENCH AND LAYERS A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, I LITERALLY WISHED I COULD GRAB THE OUTFIT RIGHT OFF HER BACK ( but in a nice way....)


SO I IMMEDIATELY RAN TO MY COAT CLOSET........
IT DOES HAVE A CREAM BACKGROUND ;)
I'D NORMALLY PUT THIS BAG AWAY FOR THE WINTER, BUT AM THINKING IN BROADER STROKES THIS YEAR. THANKS, GUYS :)

attire:
Trench: Rena Rowan, Sears, 3 seasons ago.
Long sweater & pink turtleneck: Sears ~
 ( i used to work-ish there )
Black skinny stretch pants: Basic Editions, $7.98-K-Mart
Bag: TJMaxx, old.
Hat/Scarf: Isotoner, Sears,clx.
Boots: Banana Republic Outlet (gift from hubby)
Sunnies: Dollar General Store $3.00 .
 Belt: Kohl's,clx.

were cheap ;)
A COUPLE QUICKIES:
1. WHY I ONLY LOOK AT THE PRETTY PICTURES :
MARIE CLAIRE ON WHAT'S OUT : 
CLOGS, OVER-SIZED PONCHOS AND BANGS. WHAT ?
THEN, THE VERY NEXT ARTICLE TALKS ABOUT HOW BANGS ARE 'IN'......

2.  AND HAVE YOU EVER GOOGLED YOURSELF ?

I am oozing with jealousy over that coat. It is seriously amazing.

Oh, and don't get me started on Marie Claire. I've never actually picked up a magazine, but I protest them after a few TRULY hateful blog posts.

Happy Monday back at you!! Since I started reading your blog, this is one of my top favorite outfits! The coat is incredible and you make a great defense for the color pink...not usually a favorite of mine, but this looks amazing!
Hope your week is as joyful as your outfit!

happy monday! your coat is absolutely fabulous!

I love the Happy Mondays (and normal mondays, too). That coat is fabulous.
I never read fashion mags, they thrive on making us feel out of date and desparate for the next clothes fix. Stick to what makes you feel good, you can't go wrong. xxx

Retro Reva, delighted to discover your blog and that coat is rocking! Loving cream or white or off-white for winter!

you look just great and completely YOU! that's what i love about 'shopping your closet'. you can get inspired to use your existing pieces in new ways - you can get a great new look, & since you're using your own stuff, it has your own personal flavor to it. i really like the green of the hat in this look, it sparks the pink and keeps it from being too 'sweet'.

mags...it's just so influenced by $$$, instead of a personal vision. you do come across the great editorial now and then, but generally it's pretty useless.

esp. now that we have BLOGS!!! steph

HA! You look fantastic in your grown up clothes. Love it all! We are so on the same page, I used to own those boots (gave them to a friend). I'm really glad we've "met", you have become a daily must read for me. Thanks for the shout out, I'm honored.

That coat is AMAZING!! I love it! I want to get out my spring pink trench coat. Think it's too late?

And I so want those boots!!

Louise said...

I love the coat, it's so bright and ... bright. Fabulous. x

What a creative print on that coat! I'm so glad you gave us a close-up. Love the green beret--like a leaf with the floral print--lol.
