Trench Warfare

It's that time of the year where summer is just around the corner. The tease of the long days with everlasting sun. Yet it still can get chilly in the morning and evenings.

The solution for me is the prefect trench coats.



I have been searching for the perfect one for quite sometime now.



How lucky that I've found 2?

This camel beauty is a thrifted piece from Salvation Army.


This Only one with a more modern twist is from a recent rare mall trip I took.


I know the ease of use and versatility of these pieces.

I am always at a loss when it comes to choosing the property outer wear for transitional seasons.

Trench coats are so perfect and I am so happy to see more of them in the streets.

Eco Fashion:: Conscious Roses






I found this rose bush on the side of a street I drove by frequently.

Call it kissmet, I just so happened to have a shirt that matched it perfectly.


What's even more serendipitous, the shirt is from a previous H&M Conscious collection that I found at a thrift store.


Tonight, H&M is kicking off Eco Fashion Week edition 9 with another conscious collection.



I can't wait to see what the new collection has to offer.



I am sure it will be just as rosy.




Check out the fabulous show schedule for Eco Fashion Week Edition 9

Silk and Wool






We all have one of these days. You know what I am talking about, a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.

None of the combos amounted to something presentable.

Usually this happens on my day off, when I don't really know how to dress because I can virtually wear anything. I then get stuck in the limbo of wanting to wear everything.

Part of the dilemma was caused by the fact I just received the new Aritzia items I have ordered. This delicate silk shirt seen above is going to become an outfit whether it likes it or not.

Usually, I would pair this with dress pants for a simple yet polished work outfit. But I wasn't going to work, so I was not going to be dressed in work pants. However, a bunch of other bottoms I have tried on just didn't work for some reason. Frustration is slowly starting to creep up.

Then I remembered this vintage wool skirt that I obtained recently from Pat's Vintage, and voila, and outfit was born.

My spirits immediately went from defeated to elated.

I have definitely had days where I was not digging what I put on and it shows. My entire body language is oozing the discomfort I am feeling.

The right outfit is a powerful thing.
