Sunny with a Chance of Stripes

DSC_7450_2Apparently, my subconscious self is having a moment with stripes! ¬†I know my last post consisted of jailbird stripes as well, but considering the stripes have migrated to my lower half AND varied in width, I deem them to be different. ūüėČ

This striped tube skirt is really versatile as I considered quite an array of colors to pair with it before ultimately settling on black. ¬†However, to make sure I didn’t disappointment and to ensure this look is ‘blogworthy’, I cocooned myself in this yellow coat which altogether resembles a bumble bee!

Now, I use the word cocoon deliberately here as this coat effectively insulates via a process called enveloping! ¬†The oversized cut envelopes, shields, and insulates so well! ¬†Down to my fingertips, in fact, as the sleeve length is also exaggerated! ¬†Apparently, the extra long sleeves are the latest trend to hit the runway at Calvin Klein’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week which just wrapped last week!

Hope you are still riding the high from Valentine’s weekend. ¬†Have a great Monday!
