Pink Coat: Casual


The blogging curse strikes again. Everytime I blog about an item I want…somehow it magically ends up in my hands (mentioned here about Zara heels that were out of my size, and here about Nike Roshe Runs that were so hard to find). I blogged about a Wishlist Wednesday a few weeks back stating that I wanted a powder blue or pastel pink coat. I wrote this post with having no intentions to actually go out and buy a coat because I was hoping that spring would come sooner. I walked into the mall during my lunch break at work and casually decided to check out New York & Company for new work clothes (my favorite store for work clothes btw). Low and behold, this pink jacket from the Eva Mendez collection was on SALE from $160 to $45…I had to get it.

I wanted to style this jacket + bag in a different way from how I normally dress. I usually gravitate towards a more girly-er, chic, outfit but I wanted to give my Chucks some love and incorporate a more street style look. I love how the pink jacket is feminine, but because of the oversize it can still look great with a pair of Chucks. Personally it’s been hard for me to incorporate sporty fashion into my regular outfits. I either do all chic or all sporty, never mix the two. That has been a fashion trend that I love seeing on other bloggers and wanted to make an effort into incorporating into my future outfits. Stay tuned to see part 2 (and personally my favorite) look of how I styled this pink jacket!
