I can't begin to describe how exciting it is to work with brands you've known and loved forever. I'm talking about the brands that you loved before getting into blogging all together! & Other Stories is one of those companies for me. I'm obsessed with their evolution over the years and how there is a modern look to every piece. With all of this said, imagine how happy I was when I came across the physical store in Amsterdam! It truly means so much to now be able to interact with their team and showcase a couple of awesome items!
It was an absolute no brainer when I saw this AMAZING trench that I wanted to feature it on my blog. It honestly couldn't have come at a more perfect time as I have been on the hunt for a good trench for the last few months in preparation for spring! The color and shape are perfect and I love the oversized feel of it. The size gives it that menswear inspired, minimal look I love. Something I didn't know I wanted or needed were the deep pockets. Super helpful especially if you have a bugger phone like I do! This trench looks and feels super high quality. There is a soft silky lining with a strong wind blocking material for the exterior. What I'm trying to say is you need this trench! It has all the looks and functionality you must have this spring. Plus, it's super easy to throw over any daytime look (especially jeans with sneakers or flats).
The second Stories item in this look is this pink t-shirt. It stood out to me because of the writing on the back. I love simple sayings and I am currently trying to beef up my t-shirt collection. They have grown on me in the last few months and are the perfect go-to top for under a light jacket. All we can do is find the coolest graphic t's we can! I chose this color because it's a great light and springy pink that I love with charcoal, blue and white pants or denim. I obviously went with white, but went back a forth about wearing a pair of blue jeans or not! The simple white pant made the complimentary pink socks pop in relation to the t-shirt because they are the same pink. LOVE a good ankle sock!
I went with a tailored and cropped pair of Aritzia pants that are some of the most useful pants own (have them in two colors). In case I haven't reminded you enough times, it's spring, so I wanted to go with a light pant with subtle details like the double pleat in the front. This pleat made the look slightly more dressy, but is balanced out by the light hearted t-shirt, pink socks and sneakers. Speaking of these sneakers, they're dope (haha). Velcro is the move and look even cooler with nerdy tall socks!
I had so much fun building a look around this t-shirt and trench coat. They really mesh so well with my style in general, but this did not surprise me with & Other Stories since I love everything! Thank you to their team for sending me these items to try! If you have not had a chance to shop with & Other Stories, I highly recommend you take this seasonal change as an opportunity to throw some of their pieces into your wardrobe!
