Lanvin Chic

As the sun shines more these days, my blessings have just been overflowing! I am so thankful to God right now (I am always thankful but now I'm just on cloud nine). He is amazing and I do not know what I would do without him. If any of you are reading this and are going through troubling times, just pray, work hard, trust God's timing and I assure you it will ALWAYS work out in your favor!!

I also love the spring, as the sunshine is an automatic picker upper for me. Once the sun comes out I feel I can do any and everything, it gives me superpowers!! My energy levels increase and I'm so optimistic. This why I believe I need to live in a sunnier climate! Or at least take 3-4 vacations a year to warmer countries, it's good for my soul!

With that being said. I have been wearing the heck out of this Blue COS coat. It literally goes with everything. The sun may be shinning but it's still a little cold in Edinburgh so this coat is the perfect addition to any outfit I wear. A pop of colour and a chic cut to make me feel awesome! Plus I'm getting my monies worth! *wink wink*
 These Lanvin Sneakers are so comfortable! It's like walking on air...literally!!!

Capetown Spring

It's Officially Spring!!! The weather was amazing on Easter Sunday! However, this week while the sun continues to shine brightly the temperatures have dropped again. I pulled this Cape Coat out my closet (I honestly forgot I had it) and wore it with these Open Toe Primark Boots (I forgot I had these too! Sad, I know!!) I bought these open toe boots almost 5 years ago for £20.00. Why doesn't Primark make good quality heels like this any more?

Accessories Edit: Marni SS2015

Marni's SS and Resort 2015 Jewellery is simple, yet very captivating. The combination of perplex, wood, wooden beads, rope and brass give the pieces an expected yet welcoming 2D and 3D composition. My favorite pieces are the wooden bead and bracelets.
Spring 2015 is definitely a time to update your accessories and a Marni piece would be the perfect choice!!!

Thrifted Coat

I cannot explain how much I wholeheartedly miss finding amazing coats in the thrift store in the DMV area. I scored this coat about three years ago from a thrift store off 450 in Maryland for around $10.00, if I remember correctly. Vintage in the UK is a bit different, I definitely cannot wait to be state side again and find amazing treasures in the various thrift stores around the DMV area... And since it's still cold in the UK..side eye.. It looks like we'll be wearing coats a little while longer.
Outfit Details:
Vintage Lapel Long Forest Green Coat similar (here) + (here)
COS Long Sleeved Top
H&M Midi Skirt (SOLD OUT) similar (here)
 H&M Chain Shoulder Bag similar (here)
Carven Bow Heels floral version (here)

Now to the outfit. I decided to wear one of my favorite skirts of the moment this a textured Midi H&M shirt with carven ankle bow heels and my long vintage coat. It reminds me of the television show 'Designing Women.' It was perfect as it is chic yet kept me warm against the Edinburgh winds and dropping temperatures. When will these winds return to the North Pole? I'm tired of wearing coats!

Blue Favorites

Right now I have so many favorite things. You know that saying of Women having a wardrobe full of clothing yet wear the same three items over and over again. That has been me these last few weeks, and for whatever reason they are mostly blue pieces.
 Outfit Details:
Zara Long Sleeved Top
COS Cobalt Blue Coat Sold out, similar (here) + (here)
COS Ankle Trousers 
Miss Selfridge Double Finger Ring LOVE this (here)
Ankara Quilted Shoulder Bag 
Salvatore Ferragamo Varina's (here) + similar on sale (here)

I've been wearing this blue coat, and blue Varina's constantly for the last several days, They are just so easy to coordinate and throw on.

I wear the following pieces constantly at the moment:
1. Blue COS Wool Classic Coat
2. Cobalt Blue + Red Ferragamo Varina's
3. Banana Republic Cropped Trousers
4. Whistles Neoprene Skater Skirt
5. LeyeLesi African Print Quilted Handbags

These are in heavy rotation at the moment. To those saying, 'Dang she stay wearing those pieces' yup, because I plan to get every cent out of everything I buy.' I'm definitely a repeat offender.. Wink Wink!!!

What are the five pieces you are constantly wearing at the moment?
