On my mind lately #12

Fall is truly a dreamy season. All the layers, colors, and long coats. I pretty much have only good things to say about fall. I’m so excited that fall is here (only technically, the temperature says otherwise)! It always gets me in the mood of looking at booties, leather jackets, and this season in particular, I have my eyes on the trench coats.

I was never a big trench coat person, I’ve had one and never wore it (and it is now on sale on my Poshmark). But for some reason my eyes are always drawn to them whenever I see someone wearing one. I’ve made it my mission to find the perfect trench coat for myself this season, and honestly it’s been a difficult task to say the least. Because I’m short, it is hard for me to find a nice, drapyey trench coat that fits my frame and looks good length wise at the same time. While the tall models can pull off a nice flowy trench coat, it is near impossible for me to mimic the style. I look like I stole the coat from the adult section and everything is just slightly too wide and too long.

Here are some picks I’ve been looking at, all look so dreamy and comfortable and flow so nicely. I’m hoping I’ll be able to find a few options in store to try on and see how they’ll actually fit on me, and hopefully will find some in petite sizes. Because I suspect the ones that hit the model at the knee will be more like mid calf length on me…

  1. Forever 21 Draped Trench Coat
  2. Forever 21 Belted Drapey Crepe Jacket
  3. Mango Flowy Trench
  4. Mango Zip Trench
  5. J.Crew Icon Trench
  6. ASOS White Pepper Duster Coat

A week in outfits #16

It is almost time to start reviewing items for my capsule wardrobe that I’ve been somewhat ignoring this past few months since I’m between apartments. I was having a hard time following the capsule wardrobe rules because my clothes are scattered around the dresser, suitcase, storage boxes and basement, making it difficult to find the pieces that are actually in my capsule wardrobe. I’ve been just wearing whatever is most easily accessible this past 4 months, but hopefully once I moved everything will be easier to get to and I’ll be able to seriously organize my closet once again!

This week’s outfit is a mix of everything, and I think most of them will be great going forward for fall with the help of some extra layers! Hope you enjoy!

With only one more month of summer left, I’m taking full advantage of summer outfits. Recently I’m really enjoying the loose bottoms in my wardrobe, from comfortable trouser, flowly skirts to broken in jeans! This weeks “A week in outfits” focus on how to pair these comfortable bottoms with different tops to create different looks for different occasions.

Also in case you missed it on my multiple Instagram posts, you can see my new obsession that is the Everlane tanks! I have the Ryan tank in charcoal grey and their regular cotton tank in black. I seriously can’t get enough of them and wear them every weekend since I got them (I know, I know). I also just placed another order for a white tank and am considering getting the light grey one as well… They truly are the best! If you’re in the market for some new tanks, you know what to do!

Another week of summer outfits, this week is gear more towards mixing and matching for comfortable work outfits. I’m really loving the dress under a top look, or using a dress as a top. And to my surprise, skirts has been one of my favorite things to wear recently because it helps cover my legs when I’m in the office but also helps combat the heat when I’m outside. What’s your go-to summer work outfits?

This post I’m going to go over some of my favorite outfits to wear on the weekends (and one workday outfit at the end)! You can see I’ve been a little jorts obsessed lately… I’m loving these 2 pairs I got from Poshmark and they’re truly awesome! What’s your current clothing item obsession?

Dainty jewelry

I’m having a moment with Madewell‘s jewelry range right now and I especially love all the minimalist offerings. I recently got my hands on these tiny earrings, and I just can’t stop looking at them. I have 5 ear piercings so this pack was perfect for me, I love how they’re all different but since they’re so so tiny they don’t fight with each other when wearing them. There are so many more options ranging from necklaces, bracelets and rings on Madewell, it makes me wish I was more proactive about wearing different jewelry everyday, but for now these 5 and the necklace given to me from my parents will be my staple for the foreseeable future.

I am however in search of some good quality rings (no fading, no color transferring, no bending, etc) to add to my collection as it’s something I really enjoy wearing! So if you have a favorite place in mind, let me know as I’m in need of some suggestions!
