thrift thriving ~ styling a bright statement coat

textured thrifted layered outfit 08Time for another thrifted outfit, styled by me and modeled by the lovely ShaKari.  Scroll down to the end to read more about how I styled this look, or just ignore my blabbering and look at these pretty pix and go put yourself a fun outfit together! :)textured thrifted layered outfit 02textured thrifted layered outfit 03textured thrifted layered outfit 04textured thrifted layered outfit 05textured thrifted layered outfit 06textured thrifted layered outfit 01textured thrifted layered outfit 07textured thrifted layered outfit 09textured thrifted layered outfit 10textured thrifted layered outfit 11This coat is sort of an olive green, although it definitely reads more yellowish in these photos.  I found it at the thrift store forever long ago, just like everything else you see in these photos – except for ShaKari.  She did not come from the thrift store.  But the rest did.  Including that amazing scarf.  So pretty.  Anyway.  I think this coat is so perfect for a mild winter day or a chilly spring day.  The great thing is, this color plays nicely with just about any earthy or citrus-y shade.  I love it with the green tones in the shirt { Michael Kors top I thrifted, holla!}, the stone color of the skirt, and the juicy tones of the scarf – but, I think it would look equally cool with a bright raspberry or deep eggplant color.  In fact, we did add in some purple tones by way of ShaKari’s eye makeup.  I just love how it all came together.  Hope this inspires you to throw together some bright, gorgeous colors this winter.
