J.Crew-Pink-Coat-Burgundy-Pleated-Skirt

Coat: J.Crew. Blouse: J.CrewSkirt: J.Crew. Clutch: Henri Bendel. Shoes: Joan & David. Rings: Coach, Kate Spade. Necklace: BCBG. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I’m taking a short break from my Fashion Week posts to share this outfit and guest post I’m doing today for the super sweet Tash at her blog, Style-Isle, while she is on vacation.  I must confess that styling this burgundy skirt with this bright pink coat was not my idea.  I copied this combination from a J.Crew ad. . . the very same ad where I first laid my eyes on this beautiful fuschia coat.  I already owned the skirt, but I knew that once I bought this coat I would definitely pair them together.

 

Speaking of a vacay, I’m pretty excited to be heading to Chicago this long weekend with my family for a few days of fun, great shopping and delicious food.  Heading to the Windy City for Easter has become a tradition for our family, minus my brother.  A weekend of shopping is not exactly what he considers to be “fun”.  Oh, boys. . . what do they know!?  I’m also looking forward to indulging in what I think is the best cheesecake out there, after my Mom’s of course.  I think I’ve tried nearly every flavour of cheesecake on The Cheesecake Factory’s menu, my favourite’s being the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake and the Lemon Raspberry Cream. . . yummmm!

 

Today, I’m also linking up with the fabulous Lauren at her blog Style Elixir, for her Style Sessions series.  Thank you to both Tash and Lauren for allowing me to share my looks on your blogs!

    You look like you should be on the cover of J Crew catalogue! Enjoy Chicago & The Cheesecake Factory. I only live about 5 minutes away from one but rarely go there (probably my subconscious telling me it’s too dangerous). My favorite is the chocolate raspberry truffle one too but I have not tried to many – I always order this one.

    I’m pretty sure the smartest thing I ever did fashionwise was invest in a hot pink winter coat. Love these leopard accents too!

  • Rachel

    I love this bright color- it pops so well on camera (or mainly your camera, my photos NEVER look this good!)

    • Jenny
      March 26, 2013

      Ha ha ha, thanks Rachel! It took many camera setting changes, and a little brightness adjustment on my computer to get these photos to have a similar colour to real life.

  • Rachel

    I love this outfit so much, especially the gorgeous coat! 🙂 Looks so great with the leopard additions!

    I also have this coat and haven’t thought to put it with a deep tone! Love this look!
    And I have to say, I just went to Cheesecake Factory in Boston… you should try the Farfalle w/ Chicken and Raosated Garlic … it is delicious! 🙂 Or if you just stick to their cheesecakes, those are all to-die-for too! 🙂 Anywayyy, love the look!!

    Chicago is only 5 hours away from me and I NEVER go 🙁 I’m jealous. I love that you wear this huge necklace and it doesn’t seem HUGE. It’s like…a muted statement necklace?

    • Jenny
      March 26, 2013

      Funny, Chicago is about 5 hours from my parents house as well and we go once a year! I LOVE that city! You should definitely visit more often. 🙂 Thanks so much Ashleigh!

    I remember when everyone was wearing “bordeaux” and “oxblood” at the start of fall, and then it seemed like we inexplicably went back to burgundy…except it’s the same color. Haha. Anyway your title made me realize that! I love this pairing of pink and whatever color you want to call that deep red 🙂

      Ha ha ha, you are so right! Bordeaux just sounds pretty, so that’s why I usually use it, but Burgundy is definitely my back up. Thanks so much Sarah!

    I love this color combo! I’d say I would try it with my bright pink coat, but I don’t think I’ll be needing my coat again until fall. Sigh! I am always on a different season than nearly every other blogger out there (that season being hot year round). Anyway…I love this look on you Jenny! Sorry for the tangent! 🙂

    • Jenny
