Happy weekend, my friends! I had enough of winter, even though there is no sign of it going any where, I decided if I put on some spring colors, it would at least brighten the mood. 🙂
Outfit today is pale pink faux shearling coat and gray over-the-knee boots. Last time, I draped the coat over my shoulder, as you might have seen in a lot of street styles. It is picture-perfect for sure, but as soon as you started moving, the coat may or may not move with you. 😀 The more practical way is to put your arms through the sleeves, that is right, the usual way. The unfortunate news is this coat is oversized and cocoon-shaped, after I wrap it around my petite frame, I would & should look like a sheep pillow pet, unfolded.
What’s a fashionista gotta do? Ha, simply belt it! It’s the fashion world’s answer to the trend of oversized coats, put a belt around it, and that is another trend. Get it? If there is a fashion trend not everyone can handle, some trendsetter will start another one to ‘correct’ it. The petite fashionista love and hate the Adidas trend, so platform heels and espadrilles come back in fashion, now everyone is comfortable and happy. ;D
“Hidden” beneath the fluffiness, is a denim shirt and a floral skirt (last worn here), both have tiny yellow dots / flowers, should I remove the coat, the yellow of my bag will pick up the yellow on both pieces nicely.
Why the scarf? It adds a hint of whimsy as well as warmth. Did you see the lips on the scarf? Those are my lips. 🙂 My friend Alessandra, an amazing artist, painted this scarf with a photo from this post, isn’t that super cool?! You can see more of Alessandra’s work on her website.
One more thing, I learned about this milliner in Pennsylvania, Jenessa Leone, her hats are of superb quality and right-on-trend designs. You bet I won’t be buying more Maison Michel hats anytime soon. ^^
Thank you so much for reading! Until my next post!
