Almost there

Though we’ve had a really mild winter this year, I still can’t wait to pack away the heavy winter layers. I’m already thinking of new spring outfits to wear in the coming weeks, including this one and though I’d normally top this off with a black shoe  (because hey, that’s mostly what I have), I decided to go with a cobalt blue suede wedge, because why not?

Pleated blouse + Skinny Pants + Boyfriend Coat Pleated blouse + Skinny Pants + Boyfriend Coat Pleated blouse + Skinny Pants + Boyfriend CoatAnn Taylor pleated bib blouse (old) / Club Monaco Emily Pant / Banana Republic Boyfriend Wool Coat (Spring versions here and here) / Pour la Victoire Mai Wedge Heels (similar) / Daniel Wellington Sheffield Watch / Forever21 Rings

If anyone is wondering about the status of my Five-Item Challenge, it’s going pretty well (see widget to the right). I made a three-item purchase from J.Crew’s sale, but I actually used a store credit. In past challenges, I always excluded items I purchased with gift cards and store credit but this year I made a rule addressing it because I forgot I even had it! In the interest of being transparent, I’ve included it in the widget even though I’m not fully convinced that they should count. Slippery slope, I know.

    Love this look especially the coat and pop of color from the shoes. I almost got the coat on sale at BR but the only size left was a bit too big.

      Thanks, Vickie! Isn’t it frustrating when it’s the last item of its kind and it doesn’t quite fit?! I’m sure you’ll find a great alternative next fall though!
