Easy Does It :: Camel Coat and Sneakers

Saturday, February 27, 2016 Simone - Your Style Architect 9 Comments

Happy Saturday everyone.

What a week...weather was gloomy, back to routine after the Chinese New Year holidays and husband was travelling.... all sort of dampened my spirits.

Been researching more on how to take better pictures for my blog and was particularly inspired by a fellow blogger who had written a great post on self-taken pictures. Do check out Liz Morrow's post on her blog : Delightfully-tacky.com Will probably take me awhile to perfect my pictures as Liz has done hers. Slowly but surely I am sure I will get there.

Before the weather starts warming up again - here's a quick take on my favourite colour " Camel" and this coat which arrived in the mail from Shein.com.( Thank you!) Bought a couple of things recently from them too and will showcase them shortly in another Haul Video.

For those of you who know me well, I had never really been a sneakers person. But lately I decided to (again) break out of my comfort zone of ballet flats and decided to try trending sneakers. Seriously, even Victoria Beckham in her latest Fall 2016 show ( check it out here) is now trending sneakers and given up heels altogether. There must be something subtly sexy about sneakers.

Back to this versatile camel coat from Shein.com, I decided to put together 3 looks in trending this coat. The first being over the shoulder but not worn ( very celebrity / fashion blogger style). Second, pairing it with leopard print accessories which is sooo me. I love my animal prints. Third, belting it up for a different look. This particular coat is a little " box-ier" in cut ( if there is such a term to describe it) and so tends to fall a little square on the body. Therefore by belting it up, it creates a little more figure and again a more feminine touch to an otherwise masculine style coat. And finally, just simply worn on it's own!

Not forgetting mini bags  are the next " IN" bag style to own and so my beautiful Fendi Peek-A-Boo has been pulled out to complete this cute outfit.

If you were to google online, many bloggers have styled camel coats with mostly black accessories and clothing items. However, I wanted to keep this light and more in line with a Spring/ Summer colour palette than a Winter palette. So paired it with a white clothing items and accessories.

Ha ha found the ladder on the rooftop and why not? Decided to add this as a prop to my pictures - starting to think a little out of the box now... you see it, you see it....Thanks Liz for great tips!
