Hanging On

Top: Love Culture // Parka: Hollister Co. // Pants: Wilfred from Aritzia // Shoes: Charles David // Shades: Ray-Ban // Purse: Sanrio Hello Kitty 

It was a beautiful day yesterday. The kind of day when it isn't too warm or too cool. Perfect. 
As you can see, I jumped on the let's-hang-our-coats/jackets-over-the-shoulder bandwagon. I know. I tried not to, but it just makes you ooze chic. Try it! See? Told you so. I chose the parka (thanks sis!) because I like how it's laid back feel contrasts with the more dressy, corporate-ish button-up shirt and tuxedo style pants. This top was actually another find from Crossroads. Speaking of, I think I'm due for another needed visit to stock up on Spring finds. Because after my package that is due to arrive today shows up, I'm putting myself on a super strict shopping diet. So stay tuned for it's reveal! 

Happy Friday and I hope you all have a great weekend.

  8. So cute!!
    The patent heels and bag dress up the outfit, and the parka makes it more chill. And girl, I definitely feel you on the coat over the shoulders fad!
    At first you swear to yourself you'll never do it, and then you try and it's très chic!
    Overall a perfect outfit for one of those spring days.
