It's Handled...

How about this beautiful wrap coat - my first item from The Limited's Scandal Collection! Like many other women, I've idolized Kerry Washington's character, Olivia Pope, since watching the series premiere of Scandal in 2012. Aside from Olivia's ability to avert even the most critical of crises (all while remaining calm), she has impeccable style. Often dressed in chic pastels (or white), Olivia's style is very different than that which traditionally defines conservative office style. With her feminine, yet sophisticated style, Olivia Pope has changed the look of the professionally strong woman.

While I don't tend to share my professional office looks on the blog very much, I often mention that I like to incorporate items from my personal wardrobe into my professional wardrobe (or visa versa) as much as I can. This rose colored wrap coat is the perfect example of this practice, as it is a great statement piece for my professional wardrobe, but also pairs nicely with skinny jeans and creates a chic, feminine look that is perfect for a night out on the town!  

If you're thinking about ordering this coat, I recommend sizing down 1 size. From my experience, it runs on the larger side. Also, while there are limited sizes/quantities available online, I recommend stopping into your local Limited store(s) to see if your desired size is available. I've noticed healthy stocks of this coat at several Limited stores over the past couple of days. A special thanks to my amazing Mom who found this coat in my size at her local Limited store in Minneapolis - you're the best, Mom :):)

 Thank y'all so much for stopping by. May your day be as beautiful as you are!
