At the beginning of the summer, I shared my fear of wearing white. And throughout the summer I’ve sprinkled a little white into my wardrobe, even recently wearing a white tee to work. Towards the end of the workday, I discovered one small spot on the shirt, but I didn’t freak out. But I know I have completely grown in my feelings towards white when I saw this Grid Longline Coat from Shein and I instantly wanted it.
I immediately started planning all the things I could wear with this coat, but ultimately decided to pair it with another grid print.
I really love how the white and black jacket paired with the black and white skirt look. I was worried about how the jacket would fit because my arms are a little chunky, but surprisingly the arms of the jacket are very roomy, so I wasn’t tugging at the sleeves all day. I normally wear a size 14 or XL in tops, but I ordered this jacket in 1X.
The skirt is also from Shein and actually comes as a set with a matching top, which you can find here for only $12. The funny thng is, when I purchased this set, I also decided to purchase the leggings in the same print because I knew I wanted to wear them on my trip to California today. So I packed for my shoot the night before and got to the shoot the next day and realized I had brought the skirt and the leggings but not the top. See my reaction below
Thankfully, I actually had this control Spanx bodysuit in my bag, so I threw that on and called it a day. I think it actually looked great with the White Grid Line coat and skirt and definitely gave it a bit more sexy feel. What do you think?
