Ruffles & Sparkles

 Coat // Similar Dresses: (1), (2) // Similar Shoes: high end, affordable // Earrings c/o // Watch // Bracelet c/o 

The moment I saw this red ruffle sleeve coat I knew it had to be mine! It's the perfect coat for spring with it's three quarter sleeves and lightweight fabric. It can be a challenge to dress for daytime events in the spring (brunches, baby showers, etc.) because of the finicky weather. Adding a lightweight coat is a must! 

I decided to pair this statement coat with an old cream colored dress and some accent jewelry. I love this statement bracelet. I really like the look of bangle type bracelets but I just find them so impractical / uncomfortable to wear. This bracelet is, therefore, perfect because it is bound by an elastic so I can wear it without feeling like it's getting in my way all day. (...Which is very important when trying to brunch real hard and drink mimosas haha)

I wear these shoes all. the. time. and for good reason - the mary jane look is a classic, but it can actually be unflattering as it cuts off the elongated line of your legs. These mary janes are thus one of my most-worn pairs of shoes because the strap that makes them a 'mary jane' sits lower on the foot than usual. This helps avoid the 'cutting off' look, and maintains the elongation that heels give to your legs. These exact shoes are sold out, but you can get a high-end similar 'low cut mary jane' here, and a crazy affordable one, here. I SO recommend everyone get a pair!

In other news, 5 more days until I head to New Orleans for a quick vacation! I cannot wait. If you have any suggestions for places I need to go, restaurants I need to eat at, etc., definitely let me know in the comments below. And be sure to come back to the blog on Wednesday for a peek at what I'm packing and some tips on traveling light!
