though these days i find myself gravitating toward a more neutral palette in terms of my wardrobe, i don’t think i’ll ever be able to quit color completely. i find neon pinks, vibrant blues, even a good citrine every now and then to be instant mood boosters, especially when i’m looking to add a little punch to my otherwise demure outfit.
so today’s happy-maker comes in the form of a jacket i snagged years ago (we’re talking maybe a decade?!) at banana republic outlet. i’ve never been too keen on red (at one point in my life i was in fact a redhead and have always had a complex of how i look in the crimson hue), but this coat convinced me otherwise. it makes a statement while remaining timeless with its sweet peter pan collar and bell sleeves. for a very parisian-inspired look, i paired my coat with a striped tee, my favorite black high-rise jeans, and of course a bold red lip. all that’s missing is a croissant, a cafe au lait, and a view of the eiffel tower.
