Styling a Statement Coat :: Rich Shades of Red

A statement coat is a must for the fall and winter. It’s the item you can throw over any outfit, walk outside into the crisp air and feel confident. My coat collection is one of my favorites and something I have been building for almost 10 years. This plaid statement coat is a heavy-duty piece with a classic silhouette. The woven fabric is a beautiful mix of rich reds with pinks and a little white to keep everything in balance. The notch lapels give that old-school look but the solo button closure makes this statement coat modern. I’m wearing size XXS in this jacket, which does have an oversized fit. This is handy for when you’re wearing thick sweaters or multiple layers. However, if you’re petite, you may need more alterations. The sleeves are a little long on me but I prefer longer sleeves to keep my wrists warm.

Styling Statement Pants :: Floral Wide-Leg Silk Pants

Have y’all seen Crazy Rich Asians, yet? If you haven’t, you’re missing out and I couldn’t recommend this hilarious romantic comedy more! Plus, it was so nice to see an all-Asian cast. The reason I mention the movie is these floral wide-leg silk pants make me feel like a Crazy Rich Asian! Don’t be too concerned, for silk pants these come at an attainable price point. When I first saw these wide-leg pants online, I knew I had to have them. It’s a collaboration between J.Crew and famous wallpaper designer Abigail Borg, who is known for her quirky, hand-drawn florals. This collection has me swooning. The floral prints are simply whimsical and elegant. I actually got two pieces from this collection, these floral wide-leg silk pants and a shirt dress with pockets (blog post on this coming soon!).

rsTheCon 2018 Takeaways & a Little Red Romper

A few weeks ago, you may recall a stream of photos from me and some of your favorite bloggers in Dallas using the hashtag #rsTheCon. rewardStyle is a monetization platform I use, along with thousands of other bloggers, every single day on Color & Chic and my Instagram. Many of you are familiar with LiketoKnow.It, which is how you shop my Instagram. However, LTK is a tool developed by rewardStyle, which gives me and other digital bloggers the ability to earn money through my blog and social media channels.  The story of the two entrepreneurs who started rewardStyle in 2011 is a great one. Amber Venz-Box, who ran a blog, would hear from her readers they were purchasing the clothes she was wearing. But she wasn’t able to earn any money off the hard work she put in. That’s not exactly a good business model. That’s how rewardStyle was born.

Elegance :: Pleated Maxi Skirt at the Jefferson Memorial

I have had many moments in my life where I feel like a princess and this was one of them, thanks to Johnny. During our trip to D.C., we woke up super early to go Monument hunting. This way we avoid any big crowds and can get these awesome photos, ha! The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is a must-see monument. The majestic and grandeur feel of the tall columns really make you feel like you’re almost in a castle. Plus, there is a beautiful view overlooking the Tidal Basin and you can spot the Washington Monument. I simply cannot believe this pink pleated maxi skirt is only $30! What a steal!
