Hi guys! ♥
Sometimes I want to put aside all the try hard, show stopping pieces in my wardrobe and stick to the basics. I almost always feel more comfortable & confident in my outfit when I don't have a mish mash of competing pieces vying for attention. This classic red trench coat is a favorite item I've had in my wardrobe over the years. I bought it when I was in high school (so probably around 6 years ago!) and it has been a loyal staple ever since. Red trench coats are just so flattering & the color adds sophisticated personality without being over the top.
I thrifted the cozy cream sweater about a month ago & live in this thing! A skirt seemed too fussy for this outfit so I opted for my worn in pair of skinnies I bought while working at Aeropostale. These low kitten heels are also wardrobe piece well worn. They were a steal from Payless and I wore them throughout the summer at my internship, & continue working them into my outfits to dress things up. Bella Hadid kind of inspired my outfit with this look of hers. I've always wished I could work that model off-duty look, so this outfit is a college student's twist on that.
Hope you are having a great week so far! Oh, and thanks so much for the encouraging words on my senior project. I'm going to try to keep you all updated with my progress as the semester continues on! x
With much love, Lauren.
