When I look at this coat I instantly think of summer.  What an oxymoron right, a coat making me think of summer?  It’s the aqua blue color that has my head swimming.  I love the slightly oversized menswear feel to it but still having that little feminine touch to it.  The cropped sleeve is perfect for transitioning into those days when it’s cool in the morning but by lunch time it feels like summer.  The length is perfect and hits at just that right place for wearing with pants or a dress.  The perfect transitional piece! The only thing that could make this coat any more perfect would be to add a bow in the back!

Now for some real talk that I wish I didn’t have to bring up but… after lusting after this coat for so long, I dare to say that it was incredibly hard to photograph.  I think it’s due to the fact that yours truly is so petite and even though it’s an extra small it kind of dominates me.  The fit got the best of me.  I love it but I’m banning it from future blog appearances until further notice.  It’s always hard for my mind to grasp the concept of it looks better in person.  Like what?  No.  I guess I need to grow a few inches taller because I can’t bare to part with it.

Anyone share my pain in not being able to photograph some of your favorite pieces?  For me,  stripes can be a little tricky.

Have a happy weekend! 🙂

    I have the same problem. I have trouble finding pieces that don’t swallow me in height/length. I like the coat, but would love to see it in a pink or charcoal color.

    I know exactly what you mean!! Something looks great in person but when you photograph it, it just doesn’t look the way you want it to. That being said, I think you look great in this coat and I LOVE the colour!!
