Marianne: What I Want

Let's just start by saying I would like to look like Carla Bruni, s'il vous plait:.

Lacking both that figure and a certain j'nais se quois, here are a few things that I think I need for spring.

Confession time: I actually bought this trenchcoat this week, and have worn it twice already. I wore it right out of the store! But seriously, I had a 40% off coupon and this coat is really lovely. Great details and a classic silhouette.
I am fascinated with the fuller skirts that are out right now, but have not yet tried one on. I like this dark indigo denim flouncey skirt. I'd wear it now with my favorite vintage brown leather boots, and later with chunky heeled sandals.
On the same denim lines, I love this denim pencil skirt. Since I can wear jeans to work, denim skirts are a natural! Ideally I'll love both of these styles, but it's really more likely that only one will work with the copious junk in the old trunk. Which do you think will work better?

  1. Love the coat! I think the first skirt is too short for work unless you wear tights and you won't want to do that soon.
