Favorites | April Showers & Colorful Trench Coats!

How weird is this weather? I thought it was finally Spring!

I am probably the world’s number one Winter and rain hater. While some fashionistas are happy feeling warm and toasty in their rain boots and puffy jackets, I’d much rather be in colorful sandals and breezy tops. But what’s a girl to do? :)

I took it upon myself to try and make the best out of these April Showers (hoping that this apparent storm is the last Beirut will see for the next 4-6 months) by investing in a colorful Spring trench coat, courtesy of Mr. Michael Kors!

What I love about it: Its bright fushia color is sufficient to keep me feeling refreshed all day long. Its soft fabric provides enough warmth for this time of year and the gold toned buttons give it a cool edge and creates a nice mix with the hot pink.

You can wear colorful trench coats over almost any colors; a hot pink trench goes great with basics such as black, grey, and some shades of purple. I wore mine today with a Michael Kors purple Hamilton Satchel and accessorized with my favorite matching hot pink Victoria’s Secret umbrella to brave this crazy rain!

In honor of this day, Forbes compiled a list of the “100 Women Who Run the World”, including ladies from the fashion industry, such as designers Diane Von Furstenberg and Miuccia Prada, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and entertainers like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, and Ellen De Generes. The list also features some big names in politics, among them German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Brazil’s President Dima Rousseff, and US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Technology powerhouses also got their major share, with Meg Whitmen, HP’s CEO,  Facebook’s COO, Sheryl Sandberg , and Yahoo! CEO, Marissa Mayer making the list.

There are so many women all around the globe striving to leave a mark in this world, be it in politics, fashion, technology, entertainment, and the list goes on and on.

I saw the image below on my Facebook timeline today and immediately thought of my favorite woman in the world.

 

Let

 

MY mom. These simple words are such a true reflection of who she is. She really can move the world’s biggest mountains and she’s been doing it since the day I was born. To me, she is the perfect example of what a woman should be; driven, strong, outspoken, firm, and accomplished, yet soft, caring, emotional, joyful, and so very loving, and I am beyond honored to be her daughter today and everyday!

Favorites | The Armani Jeans Varnished Handbag

The Armani Jeans top handle is currently one of my favorite practical handbags around.

With its varnished finished effect, this handbag can easily work for a business meeting, afternoon drinks with friends, or a fancy dinner date.

My favorite thing about this designer bag is that it fits all my necessities; the internal pockets are a major plus since I can easily divide my belongings in them, without having my keys scratch my phone or my wallet. Moreover, the firm double handles make it easy to carry around and the logo detail gives it a sophisticated designer look.

This handbag is the perfect gift for your special someone on Valentine’s day and is available year round (it is a permanent collection item) in a variety of solid colors from basic black to sky blue to plum purple to fiery red to pure white.
