My aqua coat is older and was purchased years ago from Saks Fifth Avenue, on sale! I have kept it all of these years because I love its fitted, almost princess cut, and its lively, happy color. It is so well made that there isn't a hint of wear or piling; a true testament to the notion of investment buying. Teamed with a silk shawl in a stronger shade of aqua, blended with a bit more green, I was ready to take on the cold March day.
I am wearing my ankle strap pumps from Nordstrom and my legs are a bit cold, but I am thinking of oceans and seashells. I can almost smell the salt in the air. Still...Brrr. I am glad my aqua coat is pure wool! My theory knit skirt is soft and warm, and I like the combo of marled navy with aqua. I got this skirt at STA recently in the Upper West Side store, on Broadway.
I am also wearing a bracelet from that store as well. This signed costume bracelet boasts two jewel encrusted birds: what better symbol for Spring? It is lively in the gold metal and twinkling greens and blues.. yes, again...ocean colors!
In the event that you find yourself with a yen for a coat in this gorgeous, aquatic shade, I have put together a shopping collage:
