Every week on my social media stream I present a Style Of The Week, usually a street style but sometimes it’s a print ad that’s caught my attention. A few weeks ago it occurred to me that it would be a lot of fun to add a “Shop The Look” segment on my blog, and, given my large amounts of extra time ha ha, the first one is done. That said, let’s get to it!
It’s spring and for many people it’s a time of anticipation, getting out of your winter routine, and enjoyment of the bright colors you’re starting to see in nature. I was reading online recently that orange has been on trend more so this spring season. It’s an exuberant mood boost so after last year that makes complete sense to me. Chartreuse, deep hot pink, and orange are colors I’ve always enjoyed so when I saw this incredible, orange trench I immediately fell in love. Besides the color, I like how the shorter length works for many body types and is easy to adjust if needed or desired.
This trench was online and it caught my eye due to it’s figure enhancing cut, bold buttons, and of course the color. Online I found a great trench with a hood, great in case you get caught in the rain minus your umbrella! It’s a rich orange with a smidge of red in it and gorgeous! The military style exaggerated lapel and bold pockets make it extra snappy. You can scoop it up online at Light In The Box Orange Red Trench
I’m crazy about these skinny high jeans from H&M! On the jean jacket embellishment video I made, it’s the second one on my YouTube channel, I talk about how they recycle materials and also create clothing from recycled fibers. That’s amazing because why toss something if it can be repurposed? You can check out that video here. Margi Reed Enterprises Jean Jacket Embellishment Video.
These have the right amount of Lycra, 3%, so they don’t get too stretched out as you go through your day. These will fit in your wardrobe everywhere. Date night with a sexy tee and denim jacket, check. To the office with your pumps, jacket, and shirt (I love bodysuit blouses), check. With your orange trench? Check! H&M Skinny Black Jeans
The sandals are a nice way to lighten up the look, but if an unexpected colder Spring day pops up feel free to grab the short boots again! These from Macy’s are pretty, and will work well with dresses too. The heel height is tall enough to add interest but not crazy high if you’re going to be on your feet all day. Plus, they come in more colors if you really like them! Macy’s Black Strap Sandals
I’ve shopped these vendors successfully and would also like you to know if you purchase from them I may receive a commission.
So remember, enjoy the process of exploring and making this look your own. If you have questions please reach out, I’m here for you.
Bye for now!
