One of my favorite things about blogging is introducing you all to the brands and designers that I feel lucky enough to partner with. Today, I am featuring these incredible statement separates from my friends over at Karen Millen. I have often seen Karen Millen's store whenever I visited Westfield Shopping Centre downtown San Francisco and for some reason I never ventured in until now and I am SO glad they invited me to view their fall collection.
With all this rain SF has been getting lately, I decided it was finally time to invest in a trench coat. Can you believe that until now, I've never owned one? With our London-esque fog you would think that I would've bought one a long time ago but for some reason, I never had one if my collection! Luckily, Everlane came to my rescue with this beautiful and classic trench coat. If you're a newbie to Everlane and have never heard of this incredible company before, you are in for a treat. Everlane's pieces are high quality without the high price tag. I also feel like every single thing in their collection is something that will both last forever but also last through trends for years to come. I mean, I love me a trendy item but I do find that I am leaning more toward classic pieces as I make my way through this 3rd decade of mine (get it? Because I'm in my 30's?! Ha!).
I wouldn't say that I shy away from color, but I do find myself in a very muted and neutral style comfort zone most of the time. It just seems easier to pull together an outfit with neutral shades more than an outfit with bright colors. To be honest, bright colors never really felt chic to me. I loved statement colors on everyone around me but I just felt I couldn't really pull it off in the way that I wanted to, therefore neutral and muted tones became my jam. However, over the past year, I have myself more drawn to bright colors (read bright, NOT neon). I am especially loving different shades of the same color family pulled together to create one kick ass outfit.
