Wrap It Up
The air is surely turning crisp as we watch the leaves change from a beautiful green to an even prettier blanket of orange, gold and red hues. I witnessed the most beautiful autumn leaves storm during recess on Wednesday. It lasted all of almost one minute but felt like an eternity. My young and impressionable students and I ooh’d and aah’d and watched until the very last leaf stood perfectly still on the black top at the end of it all. Applause. Autumn is such a shoowww off. Windy Wednesday we dubbed it as we went back indoors to record our findings on our weather chart. Our deduction? The season gods surely favor Autumn out of all four and that’s a no brainer.
The Autumn feel is undoubtedly beginning to peak even in my usually not too frosty and frigid corner of the universe. The temps are seriously starting to dip. What better to turn to than a coat (duh) and if you love colors like I do, especially if pink/purple are involved, you’d go for this FABULOUS ON A DIME piece perfectly color blocked in black, white, tomato red, blue, camel, pink and black. So much character in one little coat! Doesn’t hurt to bring summer with you into Winter with a burst of colors. But wait a minute. Did I just say ‘Fab on a Dime'? Yes I did, I can’t tell a lie. Hopefully you remember my FOAD series from here and here. This is a FOAD jacket fashioned after one of the Celine Fall '12 pieces. One downside was it getting linty easily. My lint roller never worked harder, but wrap it up around me I did and it kept me cozy.
The length of this jacket is perfect and so is the loose and cozy fit. Perfect for a 54-degree day and totally stare worthy. Oops, are you dealing with cooler temps? Didn't mean to rub my good fortune in, hehe. I paired it with a high waist pencil skirt (that omg hugs in all the right places) and a classic white shirt for a polished and feminine look. The cage belt with a metal plate in front accentuated my waist, the sexy six inch heels elongated my legs and the sparkle I piled on in the form of jewelry created the festive air that this time of year calls for. As street style continues to evolve almost over runway style, I grade this look an A++ for being totally #streetchic.
Well Hello There Style Lovers!
How was your week darlings? Mine was busy but I survived. Countdown to the holidays is on and complaining aka whimpering (hehe) is off my lingua for now. Call me out if you sense the slightest bit of wah wah wahhh, hahaha. Note to self: savor every minute Idu, it’s the holidays! Anyways, I strutted happily even as the showers came down. After all umbrellas have to serve their purpose as do all other things. The universe says so.
I owned this chic street style, ;). Yay or Nay, your thoughts?
