Coach Penny Bag Nine West Yellow Pumps

Banana Republic Monogram Striped Trench Coat

Banana Republic Monogram Striped Trench

Gucci Sunglasses Coach Yellow Penny Bag

7 For All Mankind The Skinny Legging Jean

Coat: Banana Republic (on sale!). Jeans: 7 For All Mankind. Top: Zara. Handbag: Coach. Shoes: Nine West (U.S. link) (slingback version –Β Canadian Link). Sunglasses: Gucci. Rings: Coach.

 

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Banana Republic Milly Collection preview as the guest of the super sweet Iva (from One Chic Mom). Β Besides having a wonderful time, I was also thrilled with the two gorgeous purchases I made that night. Β ONE was a fun pair of printed shorts from the Milly Collection, which I can’t wait to wear, and TWO was this classic striped trench coat that I’ve had my eye on for a few months. Β I was delighted to see that it had been marked down (I only paid $83 for it!), and snapped it up quicker than you can say, “Score!”

      Alice, I can’t tell you how long I looked for the perfect yellow pump! I think it was about 3 years! These ones from Nine West are the perfect shade of yellow and so comfortable. I hope you like them, and can’t wait to see how you style them! πŸ™‚

    I have been swooning over that trench since it first appeared online! It’s STUNNING! My weakness for black & white stripes knows no bounds! And I can’t believe you got it at such an amazing price… it’s still showing as full price online! Great find. Loving the yellow accessories, too. xo!

    • Jenny
      June 3, 2013

      Thanks Kate! This coat would look awesome on you! Yes, I saw that it was regular price online (on the Canadian site) but it’s on permanent markdown in stores, so hopefully it will change soon online. It was marked down to $119, then I got an additional 30% off, so it came down to $83. Way too good of a deal to pass up! πŸ™‚

    You made me want to shop for a gorgeous trench coat just like yours =D The reason why I don’t have that many trench coat is because I’m from a very hot and humid country and it’s all year round! On the other hand, having few more trench coat isn’t a bad thing either. I can use it for travel reasons!! *Much excuses* LOL!!

    • Jenny
      June 4, 2013

      Ha ha ha, yes, any excuse to go shopping is awesome! πŸ™‚ I’m jealous that you live in a warm climate. We have to wear coats at least 6 to 7 months of the year here in Toronto!
