Martin + Osa High Button Cardigan in Klimt Gold (avail. in other colors here)
J.Crew Watercolor Floral Dress
Hue Cable Knit Sweater Tights
Seychelles "Tall Tale" Cut Out Wedges
vintage Kissing Mice belt
This outfit came about as a result of me painting my nails OPI's Absolutely Alice shade. This sparkly blue color is definitely a standout, but I was having a hard time finding something to wear that wouldn't clash terribly with it. Normally I don't care if my nail polish matches my clothes or not, but this color is so vibrant that I figured I'd have to take it into consideration. So I peered into my closet and saw this J.Crew watercolor dress that I bought for a great deal secondhand, and decided that the blues went together nicely.
Here is a better look at the Seychelles wedges, I think the cut out is very cool, and I love the neutral taupe color.

Review: anthropologie Two Paths Trench
I'm sure that I wasn't the only one to notice Robin's amazing ruffled trench on How I Met Your Mother (I love that show!!). Unfortunately the original coat is Burberry with a very high price tag ($1600 to be exact). When I spotted this anthropologie Two Paths Trench by idra that was posted by Anjali on goldenmeans I knew that I had to have it.
Please excuse the silly poses! I was just trying to photograph the trench to the best of my ability.
It is obviously not an exact copy, the belt is not a working belt and the tiers lay more flat than in the original. I still feel like this anthropologie trench has a very similar look to the Burberry. I love the material of the trench, it is a medium weight and has a slightly silky feeling to it. Sizing wise I took the same size as the anthropologie Inverness Trench, so I feel like it may run a bit big. The arms are a little long on me but most coats are, I wish that this came in petite but it doesn't. For reference I am wearing a size 2 in this trench.
Also love the bright green printed lining on the inside, it's funny how a little thing like colorful lining can make me like an item more.
There are pockets and there are small snaps on the inside so that they will lay flat better. Another feature that I love is the tie that is reinforced so that it won't move around. This keeps you from being able to remove the waist tie, but I don't think I would ever want to wear the trench without it.
What I don't love about the trench are the buttons. They feel a little too plastic-y and cheap to me. But otherwise I am very pleased with the construction of the trench and feel like this fulfills my longing for the now sold out Burberry trench.
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!
