LoveBrownSugar Chic: Easy Being Green

I'm the type of girl who rolls out of bed on a Saturday and throws on a pair of leggings and a sweater with no regrets. Weekends are my "me" time, so when heading out for weekend brunch or grocery strolls, I like to be comfortable. So it's imperative for me to find statement pieces that are both stylish and comfortable. *thanks the fashion gods for sneaker wedges*

This collarless tweed coat was sent to me by the lovely folks of Simply Be (now $139.00 on sale!). I've been proudly wearing it all season. 

I'm obsessed with leather-sleeved jackets and this one has a great classic shape. It adds instant glam to any outfit. The H&M sneaker-wedges from this post are still going heavy in the rotation. They're so comfortable. I can tell I'll be living in sneaker-wedges this spring.

A peek of neon adds a dimension of color-blocking to the mix.

I topped off the look with my vintage leather shoulder bag. I think I paid something like $7 for this purse. I love thrifting. Once upon a time, I posted a Guide To Thrifting Trends and dished on some of my thrift store secrets. I've been at this thrifting game since Junior High. Practically a pro now!

The makeup this day was minimal. Just a brush of gold on the eyelids, and a nude lippie.

  1. I've always been a huge fan of your style! And this look is no exception. I'm loving the collarless tweed coat with the leather sleeves. This coat is great! And I'm loving how you paired with the leggings and hidden heel sneakers.
    I'm currently in the market for a nice coat and I've been looking everywhere for a pair of sneakers with the heel in my size. Looks like I'll be stopping by SimpyBe this week...I actually just ordered a Floral Blazer from there.

    1. Thanks Janae! Simply Be has a great selection of coats. Also for sneaker wedges in your size, have you tried Nordstrom? I heard they're great for carrying a wide range of sizes in shoes.
