I got my new autumn/spring coat today! When I saw this pretty pink trench coat in the window at New York and Company, I knew it was perfect for my outfits this autumn. It’s so unlikely to see a coat in pastels in the fall! This pink looks almost ballet pink or neutral in person, and I love the chunky black details. And it cinches with a thick belt so I don’t look like I’m drowning in it. Click here to pick one up for yourself! (And no, this isn’t a sponsored article :P)

My theme for this winter, I think, is going to be “Barbie” – not exactly sure how to define that yet, but definitely elegant, very feminine classics with plenty of pink and black. I’m considering staying blonde a while longer – it’s been kind of fun! I’m really feeling inspired by Barbie’s new webseries “Life in the Dream House” – watch it if you haven’t seen it. It’s a lot like the Barbie and Ken segment of Toy Story, and really tongue in cheek. Highlights? Barbie learns how to drive (“Wait, weren’t you a Nascar racer?”), Ken has the best lines (“It looks like a bakery pooped its pants in here”) and Skipper resurfaces as scene kid. Trust me, you’ll be hooked.

And if you loved the dreamy look of these photos, let me confess that I did all the color editing and Photoshopping on my PHONE – with iPhone apps. And it saves so much time to do most of my blogging mobile. I’ll be featuring my favorite photo-editing apps later in the week, so make sure to check it out!
