Good morning and happy Monday! So I have been quite busy working recently and with the COVID vaccine I feel a little more free in this pandemic. I have been mostly working from home because of COVID but have recently started going into the office a bit more. A great summer work look I put together is this old white Bebe blazer, a silk blouse along with a vintage Alice and Olivia skirt (similar here), Steve Madden purse (similar here) and Steve Madden “Kenley” heels. So have you been going back into an office?

So I’m headed to New York next week. Yes, I know. Hopefully all will go well and I’ll stay healthy. But, anyway, I was thinking about the weather and well, it’s a great time to wear a cute trench coat for that in between can’t decide what season it is weather. With all that is going on in the world right now, retail therapy may be just what you need. I found a few coats that I just had to share.
1. Sam Edelman Green Double-Breasted Trench Coat $180
2. Simone Rocha Frilled Trench Coat $2815
3. Alice and Olivia Monique Pleated-Back Trench Coat $660

Black and white is definitely still the perfect color combo for Spring 2014. Cushnie et ochs seems to have made black and white its signature color combo and others like Louis Vuitton have simply done full shows in black or white recently. Balmain sent a beautiful black and white houndstooth coat down the runway (shown above) while Alice and Olivia put together a gorgeous black and white jacket and blouse (shown below).
The moral of the story is keep collecting your black and whites. They are classics and won’t be going anywhere. Check out my Black and White Collection on Lyst here and shop black and white basics from Alexander Wang here.
