Blazers to trench coats

IMG_7031

The reason why I wore a monochrome grey outfit on Thursday was because of this outfit I had planned for yesterday. You may also remember this one from my latest Outfit Obsessions post; it was one I couldn’t wait to recreate! (I’m a poet and I don’t even know it.) Navy, white, grey, and black together in one outfit? Sign me up! The only thing I wasn’t sure about were my pants. Obviously ankle length pants with tighter ankles would have looked better. I debated cuffing these so they wouldn’t stack so much around my boots, but I didn’t like how the cuffing looked as much. Oh well, at least I didn’t look like I was wearing PJs all day! This was the first time I attempted dressing down my blazer, and I quite like how it worked out. It was even warm enough in the afternoon yesterday to forgo a coat! I’m going to miss the nice weather; it’s going to snow tonight and tomorrow. Boo.

Sorry for the poor quality pictures from today! It rained ALL day, and we were busy until the sun went down, so a combination of cold, wind, and poor lighting led to blurry photos. I salvaged them as much as possible with my VSCOcam app since I don’t know many tricks on Photoshop Elements!

Since I was expecting a cold, miserable day, I remixed by white tee by layering a cozy cardigan over it. I decided to tuck it into my simple black skirt for no real reason except this is what I had planned in my head, haha. Of course, my trench coat, Hunter boots, and umbrella were necessary to get through the day (and yet I still got plenty wet because it was raining sideways…oh, weather). Sometime soon the rain is supposed to turn to snow. I’ll be bundled up under a lot of blankets and drinking hot chocolate all night!
