Hooray! Ten days of inspirational style prompts. God knows I need some! Check out Kayla’s post explaining the challenge here if you would like to play along.
So I mentioned previously that I only have one coat, and what do you know I already wore it the other day! I was quite stumped this morning about how to dress up a coat because along with only owning a single coat I also do not have:
A) Any broach or pin or broach/pin-like accessories
B) Scarves that aren’t cotton-y and don’t really dress up my coat as much as they dress up my outfit
C) Any desire to put a belt on a bulky pea coat
But as I sat in my closet pacing around I remembered a trench coat that a friend sent to me as a hand-me-down. I had never worn it but I thought hey — I could put a belt on that, right? I mean it comes with a belt. Why do I have to leave THAT particular belt on it. I don’t!
And while I don’t LOOOOOOVE it, it definitely took me out of my comfort zone, and the whole process demanded more creativity than I am used to putting into coats. And honestly, it was kind of fun!
Can I get some extra credit for pattern mixing too? Boy, this entire outfit was exhausting!
Anyway, like I said, I don’t feel like it’s an 11 out of 10, but I will tell you that belting a coat is something I WILL try again. So, victory I think!
