It occurred to me that I have not worn this jacket this season as often as I would like. I think we all fall into the habit of wearing the same things over and over again. This season I am going to try to change that a bit by rotating things around my closet. Speaking of seasons, this is the last week of winter and I am ready for spring. Are you already spring cleaning or do you wait a few weeks after the official date? I usually change right at the beginning of every season because I like to change my color palette.
It’s been a rough few weeks and on my friday’s I like outfits that require minimal effort. I knew I wanted to wear to this tweed jacket but I wanted something simple. Since its still cold out, I decided to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt with my black satchel. A pair of black heels and a red lip to finish off the week.

I’m a clothes girl so if you ask my what era of fashion is my favorite, I might have a hard time answering. I’ll never be able to choose a specific era because I love something about each era. Today, I’m taking you on a trip down memory lane to the 70s by wearing a pair of wide leg crepe trousers and a peasant top. I have alway loved bell bottoms and wide legged pants because coming in at 5’4, it immediately elongates me.
I’m not the widest person when it comes to wearing white but there is something so crisp about white trousers. I’ll admit I own several pairs because I always have accidents on them but I own quite a few pairs of white trousers in different cuts and styles. I wanted a bright and cool outfit so I decided to pair the trousers with this pretty floral peasant top. I knew that I needed one more piece to take this outfit over the top and to give that 70s look, I added the fur coat. I added the orange faux-ostrich oversized clutch as another pop of color so that it stood out with the pants but kept the shoes simple by matching them with the blouse.
