Blue / Gray / Orange

In my world, tees and jeans are a combination that never gets old. Play with colors and/or change up accessories, and I could probably have enough blog content to last me a long while. But... that would get boring pretty fast, so I'll just sneak in these posts every now and then. Today's color inspiration comes from Piperlime's styling of the "Furthest Thing Coat" by The Fifth Label. Orange clutch, blue suede pumps, gray top -- check, check, and check!

An Update: Everlane Swing Trench

I bought my Everlane swing trench jacket back in April of this year. I only wore it a handful of times before putting it away until fall. In the middle of the summer, I received an email from the Everlane team saying that while the trench I bought is water-resistant, it isn't as water-resistant as they'd like. They've fixed the problem and is sending me a new one free of charge. Wait, what?! This kind of customer service is unheard of! I was completely.blown.away. I already valued Everlane's business approach, but standing behind their products like this? I'm a customer for life.

So now I have two almost-identical swing trenches in my possession. From what I can see, the only difference between the two is the color. The current trench is one very slight shade darker than the previous version. Everything else remained the same -- black buttons, material used (fairly wrinkle prone), lined in the sleeves only, nice craftsmanship.

For reference (not included in my April post), size XS measures approximately: 14" shoulder-to shoulder, 24" sleeve length, 27.5" collar-to-hem along the back.

Along with the sage green color, the 2.0 release of the swing trench also comes in navy and tan.

Mustard Yellow Worn 10 Ways

I was looking through archived photos the other night when I realized a whole year had passed since I've made a compilation post. I'm rectifying that today with 10 outfits featuring the same mustard yellow pleated top.

Due to its lack of sleeves, I mainly wore the top from late spring all the way to early fall. So for three seasons, I was able to transition the top between work to weekend and casual to semi-dressy outfits. That's pretty versatile, I'd have to say.

My LOFT top is from last year, but this season's version (extra 40% off w/code FALLSTYLE!) looks to be the same as mine, aside from the front pleats. For other similar tops, try: Equipment, H&M, LOFT, Max Mara, Modcloth, and Shoptiques.
