On Monday, Dallas experienced the most perfect spring day. The sun was out and shining, it was just over 70 degrees, and there was not a cloud in the sky. Although we don’t have cherry blossoms blooming here like they have in Los Angeles (and hopefully soon in NYC), I did manage to find a few streets in Highland Park lined with trees covered in pretty white blossoms – so heavenly, don’t you think? They’re certainly a great backdrop for this outfit! While some of you may consider 70 degrees warm, trust me, it’s not. If you’re not from around here, it gets above 100+ (sometimes even above 110) in the summer in Texas. That’s why I’m taking advantage of this mild weather and flaunting a lighter spring coat!
I scored up this pale pink gem by Karl Lagerfeld at NET-A-PORTER last week – isn’t she a beauty? The color of this coat is so subtle, it’s practically a neutral – which we all know I love. I know I’ll wear this coat a lot with more casual pieces (like these jeans), but there’s something so polished about it paired with a delicate skirt. Karl’s eponymous line is actually much more budget-conscious than one would guess – especially considering he’s been the fashion director/creative director at Chanel and also creative director Fendi for years. The pricing is more aligned with more elevated contemporary brands (this coat is under $700), which I think we can all get on board with! In his current collection on NET-A-PORTER, you’ll see an abundance of neutrals (hallelujah!) and wardrobe classics like this precious little black dress, this sexy satin-trimmed blazer, and a sleek pair of tuxedo pants. If you haven’t discovered his namesake collection, do it today!

These pictures are beautiful! Love the entire look, especially your Aquazurra heels!
Stunning! Can’t get over the varying shades of whites and creams, along with that phenomenal chanel.
Wow, I love all the pastels in this look. How is the fit of the Celine sunnies? I have the Caty and think they are a bit heavy. Thanks!
