You've seen a very similar outfit to this one before, but I had to post it again to show you this coat, which has been a lifesaver during our cold, rainy spring. What's interesting about this jacket is that although I bought it in 2005 (I remember because my sister was visiting at the time and helped me pick it out), it seems to get more and more current as the years go by. The bold, graphic floral print and mix of colors seem very fresh to me, and I've worn it a ton over the last couple of months. If I saw it in a store today I'd surely buy it all over again.

The jacket helped to brighten up this otherwise somber outfit. The colors blended perfectly with the deep purple pants, and helped to bridge the pale pink cardigan with the darker pieces. I hated having to take it off once I got into my office.

Jacket: Liquid
Cardigan: Anthropologie
Tunic: Audrey Cantwell
Pants: Rag & Bone
Shoes: John Fluevog
Jewelry: Metal Pointu

That coat is beautiful! Some things never go out of style and I think that coat is one of them. Lovely!

Agreed! I wouldn't want to take that coat off either - although the tunic is gorgeous too.

Those Fluevog shoes really are the perfect pumps.

Fabulous coat!

Love the purple pants with the pale pink cardigan. It all flows so well.

Agee here too! I have a trench coat I made that is very similar and about the same age. Every time I wear it get tons of compliments.

You post less frequently than other bloggers I follow but your outfits are so interesting and distinctive that they're worth the wait. I always enjoy them much more than the routine clothes other women wear. You have such beautiful style.

What a fabulous coat! I can see why it's become a staple.
