I used to be vehemently anti-print, when it came to my clothes. I can’t recall the reason, but I remember having visceral reactions to floral dresses in the spring, stripes in the summer, and leopard any time I saw it (and this was before the Jersey Shore / Jerseylicious phenomena).
I dipped my toe cautiously in the print pool, with a floral blouse from Zara (that was sadly worn to shreds). It took me a few weeks between purchasing and wearing to don the subtly striped J.Crew blouse I picked up one afternoon. But it was this Mango dress that turned me into a bona-fide print enthusiast.
I would have never worn this coat a few years ago. Now, it’s my favorite thing to pull out when the weather gets cool. And it looks oh-so-chic when paired with all black and dark lips. The beret – well, that’s just my Francophile self trying to break out.
