For coats, I stick to variations of gray, navy and black. I have exactly one coat that's another shade -- light blue.I have worn it exactly zero times.
However, for spring, a brightly colored coat, paired with clean, well-tailored jeans and sharp flats, always looks so crisp and cheerful, so when the warm weather rolls around, I usually find myself craving at least one candy-colored jacket. This version by Marc by Marc Jacobs is adorable and a great little pick-me-up for an outfit that's otherwise suffering a case of the blah-s.
These Chloe 'Maypop' aviators are an interesting take on the current 'ombre' trend. For sunglasses, I usually stick to very classic shades and shapes, so I really like that this pair manages to be unusual and interesting while still understated enough to wear everyday.
