Totally Coral

striped sweater pink coat wide-leg jeans by 14 shades of grey

After the freezing cold of the past week, I’m ready for some spring colors, so I pulled out this coat even though it’s still a bit too chilly for it. It’s not until I looked at these photos that I realized nothing in this outfit really go together. Well, maybe the coat and the striped sweater do. I should’ve worn my darker trouser jeans, but these are warmer, and this scarf has a permanent home on my neck now, so I didn’t feel like taking it off. I guess my winter outfits are just a constant battle between being comfortable and being put-together… and comfort usually wins.

P/S: Anybody caught the SpongeBob reference in the title? Because the coat is, you know, coral-ish… no? I’m just a dork then? OK.

  1. I really like the vibe of this look — the lighter, flared jeans give a casual ’70s feel to the whole thing. And the light pink and bold blue stripes look great together! 🙂

  2. I love those wide legged jeans…You look great! Thanks for linking up to Sunday Style…be sure to join the fun again tomorrow!
