This outfit came together slowly over time in a hodgepodge of ways. This is how some of my best outfits seem to occur. Some people can have a look in mind, go out and shop for that look, and combined all of the perfect elements in one day. Me, I like a more organic approach. I enjoy having a few closet staples, things that I can always rely upon, and add in a piece here and there as I collect them without much effort to make one perfect look.
Below is a look that is one of my favorites, but I only recently discovered it! I will tell you how this collection came together over time as we scroll through the photos taken by my daughter.
|Blush Fashion My Favorite!|
Some of you may recall last December that my daughter turned 20 years old. This coat, by Michael Kors was one of her birthday gifts. As much as she appreciated it being a Kors item, the coat just did not speak to her style aesthetic. I know that it will in time, as to me, it is a classic look. She opted to give me ownership, which is fine, I won't turn it down. She received some other amazing gifts for her birthday from myself, and an amazing gift from our entire family, so don't feel too bad for her!
This classic blush pink coat, which is actually called "winter white" was sold at Victoria's Secret, I bought it on clearance. They are sold out but you can find coats very similar to this one ranging anywhere in price from 40.00 on up to thousands of dollars.
|Inviting, and Feminine can still be Bold!|
My black boots are nothing expensive or spectacular. In fact I have owned these for about 2 years now. I think, if memory serves I got them online via one of those shoe clubs. I won't link it as I was not impressed with how hard it was to cancel the subscription and I won't use them again. I believe these boots were right around 40 dollars. I don't think they were worth that much to be honest, although they have held up well, the materials are cheap, and they have no support. Regardless, they are the only pair I own at this time. I am working on getting a better pair in end of season sales coming up soon.
Still, you can see how adding a strong black boot to the sweet color of blush really makes a statement. What is that statement? It can be whatever you want it to be but for me it says that "I am a lady, feminine and a woman, strong". I like wearing the black boots as it puts the strong element of the look at the feet, which shows stability and an air of being well grounded, centered, and focused.

I love the length of this skirt, especially for my short statute. It is not too long, as skirts can often be on me, but it is also not too short, which would potentially look "too young" for my age.
The top is from BCBGeneration and was a purchase from one of my many LeTote shipments. I reviewed this shirt in a previous post. The shirt is simplistic but unique with the back being lower than the front and has a very nice texture to it. I love clothing with texture. I find this top to fit in well with a classic look.
