For the longest time I wanted a trench coat but not the classic kind, something with a bit of a twist. When I came across this ruffled little trench buried in the Anthropologie sale racks I knew it was exactly what I was looking for! Beige was a bit too blah for me so I chose the navy. Lately my favourite colour combo has been a mix of blue, grey and white, I like it almost as much as wearing stripes and polka dots together!
Usually I lug a pretty big purse around, but have learned the key to using a small clutch is having a partner who carries a satchel. Sometimes it's nice to put my camera, keys and other odds and ends in Jay's bag, because usually it's me holding onto his stuff!
Also, I keep forgetting to mention this article (How to Shop at Forever 21 Without Looking Like You Shop at Forever 21) because it does a great job of explaining what to look for and what to avoid when shopping at Forever 21. I think most people intuitively know these things, but it was interesting to see it explained in detail.
