A Green Trench Coat

002
I hate to say it, but it’s starting to get a little chilly around the edges of the days now. Really I don’t mind one bit, because I’m a layers-girl. Layers give so much additional visual interest to an outfit, especially the opportunity for a texture switch, which I love.

This green shortie trench coat (trench. coat. green. short. just making sure you got that) has been in my closet for awhile, but I wasn’t sure how to wear it. The cut is odd with jeans and a top and it’s a heavy piece that can overwhelm other floaty dresses. Luckily, this thick textured dress from Tibi was the perfect foil. The cinched waist (isn’t this such a fun vintage belt?) creates just the right resting spot for the short jacket.

This outfit would transition well into fall…can’t you see it with my knee-high blue suede boots? But since it’s still summer, I’ll keep wearing my summer faves: my basket-weave Blowfish Shoes wedges. 
Do you have a piece lingering in your closet that you aren’t sure how to wear? 
Let me hear about it and maybe we can come up with some ideas for it!

Go-Getter

Some days, you have to get up, get dressed, and go make something happen.

Or, at the very least, get a cup of coffee in a hot pink cup that really makes you smile.

And by “get dressed” I mean…borrow clothes from my mom. Let’s not discuss how much I want to “permanently borrow” this gingham shirt of hers.

I have to say, I had a really great day while wearing this outfit, and while I didn’t necessarily “go get” anything super awesome today, at least I tried. Points, right? 

This & These & That

This is my super-tired face. And sadly, this was the best of the batch of photos. Yowza. 
We’re back to gray skies, too. I need some chai STAT.
But I think the rest of the week is supposed to skyrocket into the high-80s. Ew.
These are my stripes rolled up over the spring green.
These are my lavender fingernails.

These are my chevron socks in my cheetah flats. 
And that is my casual Monday outfit. 
xo!
