Hunter + Lilac

What won’t I wear these lilac hued demi bootcut crop pant with?

the Smythe wool duster coat

It has already been said several times on this blog but I love outerwear the way most women love either shoes or handbags. While select neutral coats have a place in my closet, I favor statement coats in bright colors and / or fun patterns. Upon finding this gem of a coat at Smythe, I knew I needed it.

I am wearing a large in this coat. The sleeves were initially cuffed, though I unrolled them as the cuffs were not sewn down. Perfect for the tall gal!

I believe this coat immediately sold out on the Smythe website; it has since been restocked. However, I know that the Smythe items that I tend to covet are stocked in other retailers shortly after stocking on the brand website. With that in mind, after noting that it sold out on Nordstrom, I checked Intermix for my size. Lo and behold, it was available. Ordered.

the J.Crew lilac demi bootcut crop pant

Another day, another appearance of my lilac colored demi bootcut pant. The lilac shade looks fantastic with many bright and bold colors. I last wore these with a red lace shirt but I like them just as much with a hunter green wool cable knit turtleneck sweater.

I am wearing these in a size 31 long. In addition to these pants, I also have the style in white denim and three blue denim washes. That said, the washes vary in sizing. Beware of a final sale situation when ordering from the online store.
