Dressed Down



This week warmed up considerably (almost 50 degrees!), which meant that I quickly ditched my wool coat in favor of a lightweight trench + a few layers to keep toasty for a day of running errands around town.  While I know that the snow will return at some point, I'm enjoying this shift of temperatures for now and taking full advantage...which means you'll be seeing some "lighter" outfits from me as long as the weather allows.

*As a side note, if you don't already own one, now is a great time to buy a classic trench because most of them are on sale.  I've included links below for 3 options, including one London Fog style that's under $75 (a great price for that brand)!


 


What I'm wearing:
H&M sweater (similar here or here), Old Navy vest (similar), Forever 21 scarf (similar here or here), Pelle Studios trench (similar here, here or here), Levi's jeans (on sale here), Dorothy Perkins belt (similar), Mango booties (similar here or here), R&J Handbag (on sale here), Michael Kors watch (similar), Bracelets: H&M, Forever 21 & Vintage, gifted Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar)

Great layer look! I love the neutral colors play so well together in this outfit and the pop of color from your purse.

I'm so glad I scored my khaki trench on sale at H&M last year. It was normally $70 and I got it half off! I love this look. That scarf is so pretty and I love your ankle boots! <3

I remember living up north and getting those litter warm spell teasers and everyone would be outside and where something not so bundled up. :) But in the back of your head there you knew that another snowstorm was around the corner. Living up north you have an appreciation for good weather. PS... I miss it!:)

Kimberly, you look beautiful in this trench coat.

We're about to get a weather warm-up here in Indiana over the weekend, and I can't wait to pull out my trench coat now (thanks to your inspiration!). I got it on sale a F21 for $7 (half-off the clearance price—score!).

I love the Old Navy vest. I almost bought it but then hesitated and now I'm really regretting it! :) The boots are great too!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I have been obsessed with layering my old navy vest under jackets. Well blazers and cardigans, mostly. I think it is the best way! I never really thought I would wear mine as much as I have been! Love your look!
