There's something so fresh and unexpected about wearing pastels in cold weather, and today's inspiration photo is a prime example. I came up with a similar outfit using a pink coat from last year and taupe boots from this year. I love the end result and this is something I'll definitely wear when the weather cools off!
I'm also holding a new handbag here. I found it for an amazing price (almost 50% off) and it's exactly what I was looking for in terms of size, shape and gold hardware. I've never owned a handbag this color though so I'll try it on with a zillion things before I decide. I like to spend a good amount of money on handbags (usually one month's clothing budget goes to buying one new handbag per year), so I like to be completely sure!
