I love a little Forever 21. I might be way beyond the target age group but every now and then they come out with a classic gem that defies the price-tag.

This time round it's the draped trench. I spotted this sandwiched between some cheap and nasty stock last week and proudly marched out with the khaki version.

It's that perfect transitional "piece". All light fabric and draping that I sling over any outfit involving jeans or a short dress.

I love it so much that I decided to go back to Forever 21 this morning and look for the same style in other colours. In all honestly I was looking for the one that LisaLisaD1 has been sporting - a light grey shade - but couldn't find that in my local branch so plumped for the charcoal instead.

I'm so happy with it - and I think I might have to buy my mum a version of it because I think she would love how easy it is to wear during Spring.

I wore it today with my lazy Saturday standard outfit of jeans, tee and flats. The flats are actually new and are Miu Miu rip offs from Senso. I'll tell you this though - 100% more comfortable than the real thing :)

I have had the laziest of weekends and have mainly focussed on watching the latest season of House of Cards and reading my latest book. Sometimes you just need to hibernate at home and recharge for the week ahead, right? As soon as I post this I am going to resume the House of Cards and I am contemplating re-dying my hair - it's all gone a bit too warm up in here :)

See you tomorrow! :)


  1. I love finding hidden gems at Forever21 - I have a few dresses that are decent quality and work appropriate (!!) and a faux-leather jacket that I've had for more than 5 years and it just keeps on giving. That trench looks fab though - I wonder if it's available in Canada? I'll have to brave the gaggles of tweens and have a little peek in-store next time I'm out.

    Love the shoes too!

  6. I love casual outfits as they're super comfy and require little effort. I love that you've rolled up the bottoms of your jeans. Lovely outfit :) X


  7. wow! i havent checked out forever 21 in ages, but your coat looks awesome! i'm going to have to check it out

  8. Yes I spotted this on LisaLisaD1 too. It's beautiful. I wish shipping wasn't so expensive to Australia. I am paying just as much in shipping as I am for the jacket!

  9. those shoes though! Gorgeous outfit :)


  10. Looks very comfy, but yet polished. I always look like a slob in jeans and a tee...
