Lipgloss and Lace

Coat: H&M | Tunic: The Mint Julep Boutique | Denim (similar) | Heels: Kate Spade (similar) | Glasses: old, (similar) | Bag: Rachel Zoe
This was the look I wore when I was lucky enough to meet the one and only Rachel Zoe a few weeks ago (if you missed that major post, it’sΒ β†’ here!).
MyΒ originalΒ plan was to possibly wear this dress, but when it arrived inΒ the mail, I immediately realized it was going to be way too short. Total no-go. So as I was scrambling in my closet to find something else, I decided to try it as a blouse instead and opted for a lighter color coat. This one from H&M ended up being perfect! I love the zipper detail and the exaggerated collar.Β Unfortunately, my BFF Rachel didΒ not comment on my outfit like I had been secretly hoping, but I did have someone ask if I was a style blogger because they thought I was so well put together. Uhh…heck yes, I’ll accept thatΒ compliment! πŸ˜‰
It’s almost the weekend ladies, Friday is just around the corner! Hope you have a great one and thank you so much for reading! XO-
