Today was actually a bit too warm to be wearing a coat but I’ve learned not to be fooled by the sporadic sunshine in this state. The temperature was much cooler in the shade, and let’s not forget the night time chills after the sun sets. Oh the joy of transitioning!

Distressed denim + Olive Calvin Klein coat (2)

This is one of those looks for the days where you couldn’t be bothered and boy have I been having a lot of those lately?! You throw on a pair of seriously distressed denim with a tee, add your favorite coat, a pair of sky high heels and hope your accessories will do all the talking. Handbags by Le Gendre to the rescue! When you meet a clutch big enough to fit all the items you typically pack in your carry-all tote, in a gorgeous print and color and so effortlessly chic, you rock it as often as you can. Paired with this olive coat, this watercolor beauty added just the right touch of Afro-Caribbean goodness to elevate this look from basic to chic.

If you love this style as much as I do, then you’re in luck because Handbags by Le Gendre has partnered with Versicolor Closet to gift any Le Gendre Handbags to one lucky winner.

        I know! I had to take a break for awhile. Have you been posting on Facebook? I know they changed a lot but I usually see your posts in my feed.

        • 04/14/2015 / 10:04 AM

          I’ve been MIA on the blog and social media as well during the winter. It was extremely cold and I had zero motivation. I’m trying to get back into it now so hopefully we’ll see more of each other’s posts during the next few weeks.

          I suppose you had your baby by now. Hope everything went well ?

            Yes! He is almost 6 months. ? Time flies too fast!
            I understand. It takes more than expected to write and edit a post even if it takes only 2 minutes to read.

          • 04/14/2015 / 10:08 AM

            Oh my! Time sure does fly!

            And you’re so right girl. At the end of the day, I figured if I wasn’t feeling inspired then I couldn’t inspire anyone via blogging. Sometimes u just have to take it slow and just be, right?! 🙂 it was a well needed break

          • 04/14/2015 / 10:12 AM

            I agree! You have to be able to inspire others. I hope everything is well with you and I look forward to your posts!
