For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile, you know I tend to be more attracted to warmer colors. Most of my wardrobe consists of reds, yellows, and oranges-- so basically any color to match my fiery personality. However, lately I've been falling in love with the lush purples, gorgeous greens, and beautiful blues, because admittedly, I do not see enough of these colors in my closet. I mean, not only warm colors are eye catching right? This being said, when my most recent collaborator, Light in the Box told me I could pick any item I wanted to style, I immediately began to search their site for something with a cooler tone. And due to the weather getting colder here in the 'Burgh, the first thing to catch my eye was an absolutely gorgeous, vibrant blue coat.
I'm sure as you were reading my opening, many of you are probably wondering what "Light in the Box" is. Well, Light in the Box is an online retailer that is similar to my sponsor SheIn in the respect that they sell contemporary clothing. However, Light in the Box also sells a vast variety of other things including (but not limited to) electronics, home and garden supplies, as well as beauty and hair supplies. So needless to say when their manager of Influencer Marketing, Valerie, reached out to me, I was absolutely thrilled that I got an opportunity to work with them!
Though Valerie from Light in the Box sent me two items (I will be showing off the other item here this Sunday!) the first one I wanted to style was this lush blue coat. The first thing I have to say about this coat is that it is incredibly warm. And us Pittsburghers know how important that factor is when it comes to the brutal winters we have here. This being said, I think I will be getting quite a bit of use out of this coat both this season and next year when I am back in school at Point Park University.
The other things I noticed about this coat (aside fro how practical it is) is that it is also very well made. The fur cuffs and collar each button on to the coat securely and due to this, it makes this piece easier to have cleaned. The color of this coat, as you can see, is also very vibrant. So in my opinion, this eye catching piece is fun to style no matter what the occasion is.
Lastly, to style this piece, I just went with a basic white blouse and black jeans simply because for this post I didn't want to take away from this gorgeous coat. I did however pair it with a fun pair of navy, hunter green, and purple plaid flats. Though the plaid pattern doesn't completely stand out right away, when the sun hits these Nine West shoes they really add a fun pop to this outfit!
