Outfit Highlight: A Pink Coat and a Quilted Bag


I’m back to layering, my friends. Temperatures were in the 30s and 40s this past weekend. Who’s surprised? Noboby! Needless to say, I’m not too excited about the weather but I am ecstatic about my pink coat and Rebecca Minkoff bag. These are two items that I’ve been wanting to add to my wardrobe for a while.

Besides the fact that I’m crushing on anything pink these days, I always find myself swooning over pink coats and jackets whenever I see them, but I’ve been telling myself that they’re impractical. When I saw this coat on clearance at Forever 21, I had no more excuses. The price was right, it was just the right shade of pink and light enough for chilly spring days. I just love the softness that it adds to this monochrome outfit.

I was waiting for this Rebecca Minkoff crossbody, that many a blogger has featured on their blog, to go on sale and when it finally did, I pounced. Now if I can only add the Chanel boy bag to my wardrobe. Sigh. As much as I want one, I don’t think I could ever bring myself to spend that much money on a bag. But if it happens to come in the form of a gift, I won’t refuse!

PS. I wanted to send a big thank you to Jen of Fashionably Employed for featuring me on her Sophisticated Style Spotlight series. You must check out this awesome series, if you haven’t already!

  1. Love the light layers on top. 3 Layers and yet it all looks so effortless. Your bracelets, necklaces and that coat are all beautiful, Cynthia.

    Happy Monday my friend!

  2. What a beautiful pink coat! Love the contrast with the blue top. That bag is so amazing. Like you, I don’t see myself spending so much money in a Chanel bag, but I have learnt to never say “never” 🙂 You never know, maybe I can win the lotto lol. You look so beautiful!

  3. Such a pretty pink coat! I am finding myself drawn to lighter pinks and blush currently. Your combination with the grey and black is a perfect blend of hard and soft. Great look, Cynthia!

  4. You and me both when it comes to a Chanel bag…but I don’t think I could ever bring myself to do it either…I will keep dreaming! Ha!! Hope the weather turns warmer sooner!! At least you look cute….super score on the coat!! 🙂

  5. When you’re young, beautiful and in great shape, everything looks gorgeous on you. Sigh…lol. Thank you for linking up to Thursday Favorite Things and we hope to see you again next week!
