What I’m Wearin’…

So, above is a shot of me at work.  I saw a photo in an Instyle magazine a couple of months and I just had to create the outfit.   It incorporated the color-blocking trend that is so hot this season, while still keeping a neutral bottom.  Plus, green and blue are my fav colors!  Let me know what you think!

LOL, the sun was sooo bright that day!  I bought this trench coat so many years ago during an awesome sale and purchased a yellow one and a red one just like it for about $15 bucks each!
