Orange ya glad I’m back with a new outfit post?

At last, I have returned! It’s been a looong month away from the internets. There have been lots of cute outfits worn, numerous thrifting trips, and so many pizzas devoured. But most of this, and more, has been discussed in a video I uploaded on YouTube yesterday.

This post just begins to cover some of the looks I sported during my time off. (You’ll never see all the leggings & oversized tees I wore. #sorrynotsorry)

Now, about this outfit…

AMIClubwear extended an offer to me to try out something from their store. Never one to shy away from a store with “clubwear” in the title, I had a look around the website and was pleasantly surprised with a selection of cool, everyday-girl trends!

I gravitated towards this slouchy trench coat because every perfect moment in every 1980s movie involved a trench coat, right? Most specifically, it reminded me of Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything. (Even if you haven’t seen it, it has that really iconic scene of a guy holding a boombox over his head trying to woo a girl.)

After receiving this jacket – super quick, might I add – it was exactly what I had in mind. Styling it up was a dream! I paired it with lots of bright colors for this outfit but it also looks super chic with head-to-toe black, if that’s more your thing.

Overall, the ordering process from AMIClubwear was quick & painless and the jacket was shipped to me super fast. What more can you ask for from a company? Maybe a free kitten… but I don’t want to push my luck. 😉

I have no smooth segue for this last bit of info but I wanted to announce that I’m starting a newsletter for my blog/YouTube channel! If you’re interested in getting to know me better, and like exclusive things, then sign yourself up here: http://eepurl.com/czwO-D

  • You’re killing it in this outfit – I adore these floral pants! I have a similar pair with a white background and love them but the black version may be cuter!! Love this jacket on you as well – it looks quite versatile, too!
