Fashion Friday – Pale Pink Coat

Hi everyone and happy Fashion Friday!

The weather finally warmed up a bit yesterday and it felt delightful in the mountains.  It’s amazing what 45 degrees and sunshine in February can do for your mood after a bad cold spell.

I met the Hubs for lunch downtown and I wanted to show off this elegantmoder pale pink coat.  My Mother-in-law gave it to me!  I love it for keeping warm, but transitioning to spring colors. I know we still have a lot of winter to get through, but a little pastel pink is just the ticket I needed to feel that spring in my step.  Can’t you just imagine this over an Easter dress?

I kept the jewelry contemporary with some long gemstone earring and a chunky pink gemstone bracelet.

To stay warm I paired black tights with my black ankle booties.

The finished look is a little throwback, but I love it.

A pale pink coat, Carolina blue skies and a Mexican food lunch makes for a pretty marvelous Thursday.  I hope your day was just as great.

This weekend I’m looking forward to celebrating my nephew Owen’s SECOND birthday.  It feels like yesterday I was just meeting him for the first time.

    Your rose quartz wrap coat is beautiful Julie and I love it with simple classic black over that cute A-line skirt.

    You look absolutely beautiful! As soon as I saw this, I pictured you walking down the street in NYC. Black and pale pink are one of my favorite color combinations. Those, along with ivory, were my wedding colors. 🙂

      Thank you! It’s such a classy color combination. I bet it made for a stunning wedding.

    That’s such an adorable coat, and those boots are so cute! <3! (I am so ready for spring. NO MORE COLD. ;_; Although I really shouldn't be complaining since I'm in CA right now, haha. ._.)

    That coat is adorable! I only have plain black coats- I really need to change it up a bit!

    I love the pink skirt! It’s perfect as we start to transition into Spring.

    I want that coat! I love the whole look, and I’m so ready for spring.

    What a pretty coat. I love it, but I fear that I would manage to spill stuff over it every day.

    • JulieWunder February 20, 2016 at 10:22 am - Reply

      Haha! I am afraid of that every time I wear it! I figure worst case, it goes BACK to the cleaners 🙂 I have a cream pea coat that likes to go to the cleaners too.

  16. ooh the pale pink coat makes me think spring might be coming soon 🙂

    LOVE this coat! I took one from your book and shared my latest fashion posts. Of course, they aren’t as glamorous as yours by any means!

      Loved your Fashion Friday! You have such cute looks too!

    That pale pink coat is beautiful! It is amazing how adding a touch of spring (even if it’s only in our clothes!) can be such a mood booster!

    You look adorable. Love it !

    Loooove this look. Reminds me of my favorite light blue French Connection Trench, but more spring ready because of the length. I love having light colored coats in the winter and then in spring!
