A Printed Coat





 
 
 
 
Happy Friday Eve!
 
Shewl.  It has been a rough week.  November is one of the busiest months at my 9-5 gig, things are picking up with the blog, Holiday shopping and planning have begun, getting back in shape {nope} volunteer projects, etc. etc....  Anxiety is in full swing in my day-to-day and I find myself making list after list to deal with it {please tell me I am not the only one that feels making the same list 6 times a day helps to relieve some of my anxiety about time management.}  But, as much as I like to complain about it, I like busy.  I love busy.  I have always been the girl who signs up for just one more task even though I will be crying at 1:00 in the morning trying to finish everything.  I just feel better about myself and life when I have a full plate. 
 
I also love printed coats.  They are such an easy way to add interest to a typically plain outfit.  I found this b&w one at a local boutique a few years ago for a steal and I wear it more than I ever thought I would.  I paired it with this nude number from my most recent tote and kept everything else a tad conservative for work.
 
If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably noticed a new additional to the daily stack.  This adorable tan bracelet from Chelsea Carroll Designs is handmade and completely customizable.  I chose to add M <3 M charms {Maggie & Matt}.  There are hundreds of options with all of the colors and charms available.  Go check out her website and create one to remind you of someone/something special.  -or to just add to the arm party. 
 
Thanks for reading!  Checkout today's linkups below.  Also - I am very excited to announce that this look was chosen as one of the featured three in the Three-fer Thursday Linkup hosted by Bethany of Perfectly Coutured and Meghan of Every Day Fashion and Finance. Make sure to check out these ladies and their weekly Thursday Linkup.  Besides being two of the sweetest blogging gals I know, they both have a completely relatable style and will help you look adorable on a daily basis!

    1. The booties are still available on the Target website! They are a really good price point for the quality. I love anything with a heel, so I was sold! :)

  7. This is such a great look! The only printed coat I own is leopard print, but you're definitely making me want to invest in another. I also love the way you layered your necklaces!
