tricks {up your sleeve}

Jacket: Topshop; Dress: Modcloth/Swapaholics swap in NYC (similar style here); Shoes: Zara; Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: J. Crew necklace, Michael Kors watch, H&M cuff bracelet

A few short weeks ago I had the chance to spend a lovely afternoon in NYC with two of my favorite bloggers, Alicia of Cheetah is the New Black and Helena of Brooklyn Blonde. After a relaxing brunch (sipping bellinis no less!) we headed out for a bit of shopping in Soho, eventually getting lost into the depths of Topshop (you're not surprised, are you?). About a half an hour later, reconvening in front of the fitting room, we couldn't help but laugh: we ALL grabbed this same Burberry-esque trench coat. 

Now how's that for great minds thinking alike?

And today for your viewing pleasure, do go check out Helena and Alicia, to see how they've styled their jacket! I'll meet you over there!
