I purchased this sleeveless trench coat during Nordstrom’s anniversary sale and have been long awaiting the cooler weather. I love how soft the coat is and with the neutral camel color, it pairs well with just about anything. The large lapel adds a statement to an otherwise ordinary sleeveless coat. This coat can be worn open as I have with this look but I can also envision giving it a more defined look pairing it against a monochrome outfit (i.e black top and black jeans) and cinching it off with a belt.

I absolutely love this statement necklace with its different sizes beads and gold links. This necklace transforms an otherwise plain outfit into a fun look. I kept the color palette simple with a black t-shirt and white jeans to not distract from the focal point of the necklace. Paired with some neutral flats and purse, and I’m all set!

The look for less: Kate Middleton

the look for less comment

I consider Kate Middleton’s style very chic and classy. She has been photographed in affordable fashion as well as high-end fashion. Whatever outfit she is in, she always makes it look effortless.

This Erdem lace overlay dress is figure-flattering and has a very feminine feel to it. The detail of lace makes it the focal point of the outfit and she pairs it well with her neutral nude-colored L.K. Bennett clutch and L.K. Bennett pumps. How can you too get this look without breaking the bank? Here’s how:

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen how I styled these pair of green pants before. When I first purchased the pants, I wasn’t sure how I would style them since green seems to be a more difficult color in which to coordinate. For me, I think it works best when pairing with a more neutral palette to avoid being overly colorful. I paired the pants with a polka dot button-down for a little bit more visual interest and a nude-color cardigan. A gold-colored skinny belt and heels help to nicely tie the outfit together.

Save or splurge: Kate Spade vs. Merona

save or splurge comment

I don’t know about you but I always seem to need a new purse. I can always find a purpose for it: work, weekend, because it was cute…the list goes on. However, big splurges can’t always be the case. In this edition of save or splurge, let’s look at the Kate Spade Grove Court Large Maise purse versus the inspired version: the Merona mini satchel.

Kate Spade | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Merona mini satchel // Kate Spade Grove Court Large Maise

The Merona satchel has slightly smaller dimensions than the Kate Spade purse. From the material description, it seems this purse is softer and not as rigid in its form as the Kate Spade purse. However, the Kate Spade purse is made of leather whereas the Merona satchel is made of polyurethane. Which one to choose – decisions, decisions! Share with me via comments which option you would choose and why!
