Oversized and Underrated
The other day, a friend asked me what my favorite color is to wear. It didn't take me very long to shout out the word, “Pink!” For as long as I can remember (even through those dark, hair-spiking, Tokio Hotel blaring days in which I was a Hot Topic regular), I've favored light pink over every other color in my wardrobe.
My boyfriend, Forrest, bought me this lovely coat at Zara in January after I had repeatedly dragged him into the store to see if it was still there. I've worn it nearly every day since, even through this warm Texas winter. Incidentally, Zara only had the coat left in a large, which ended up working in my favor, as the oversized “boyfriend” jacket is one of my absolute favorite trends!
Though it's bright, the coat actually works well as a neutral (which is what allows me to wear it with literally every outfit I've put together in this new year)! I often match it with Steve Madden sandal heels when going out, or some Adidas sneakers for that daily five minute cross-campus haul I make between French and Accounting class.
