Fancy Friday

Trench Coat: Ann Taylor LOFT  /  Dress: Ann Taylor LOFT  /  Shoes: Steve Madden via TJ MAXX (similar here)  /  Sunnies: Anthropologie (similar here)  /  Earrings:  Bridesmaid gift via Etsy (similar here)

I wasn’t sure about this dress, but I tried it on while my mum was over and she insisted that I keep it.  She insisted on me keeping the dress so much, she offered to pay for it!  SOLD, to the lady with curly blonde hair (that’s my mum).  I know a good deal when I see one and a free dress?  What better deal is there than that?  Done and done.  So, thanks mum!  You truly are the best.

I don’t care how old you are, it’s always nice to have your parents buy clothing for you.  It reminds me of going back to school shopping when I was little, my favorite!  All the new crayons, with their fresh tips that had never been used.  But I digress, I could really go off on a back to school tangent and getting a lunchbox, backpack, etc.  I will say, I rocked several lunch boxes throughout the years which included, but were not limited to: Fraggle rock, Jem and the Holograms, Sheera, and Strawberry Shortcake.  And they all had a matching thermos.  So much for not going off on a tangent.

Anyway, remember the color blocking trend from yesterday?  This dress would apply!  The coat however, it’s definitely stripes.  If you are looking for a new coat this fall/winter, this one is lovely!  I’m partial because I have an undying love for stripes, but this coat is a good weight and has nice detail.  It also adds texture and interest to lots of outfits!  Note to self about the dress though, find a better undergarment.  Panty lines and bra lines are never cute, neither are side bra straps showing.  Sorry:(  Hope you enjoy your weekend!

P.S.  Like what you see?  Use code FALL1 for $25 of $50 at Ann Taylor LOFT, good till 9/25.  Plus get free shipping on orders over $125.

  1. That is EXACTLY what happened with my mother and me over the J.Crew scatter dot dress! And this Wednesday, my dad popped into J.Crew and picked up the a-line ponte dress for me (although I’m paying them back for that one). My parents rock!

    I looooove that coat!!!

  2. I love the way you styled the LOFT trench with the dress! I bought the same trench last weekend during their sale and it is suppose to arrive soon in the mail. I can’t wait to wear it! Thanks for the styling inspiration!
