Last weekend was the worldwide launch of the new Abercrombie & Fitch here in Columbus at Polaris Fashion Place. They invited local influencers and bloggers to check it out the Thursday before (you may remember seeing some posts on Facebook or my Insta Stories).
If you’re close in age to me, you probably remember the A&F of our high school days – shirtless guys, thumping music, and that overpowering scent. We all loved it in high school, but I can’t say that’s something I would enjoy now. The good news is – all of those things are long gone and the new stores are beautiful!
Also, can I just say how obsessed I am with the clothes?! I like every single thing… When they invited me to the event, they asked me to pick out a few items to wear to the event and this outfit is what I chose.
The first item that I picked was this blush pink trench coat. You know I feel about trench coats and I couldn’t resist the blush pink color. I’ve already worn it out on some of the warmer days this February and I know I’ll probably wear it every day this spring. To me, this piece is the epitome of their new collection – classic, with an on-trend twist. Trench coats are timeless and the blush pink color brings in into 2017 and beyond.
The next item I chose was this blue & white striped peplum top. It’s light-weight and I love the vertical stripes. Again, I feel like the blue and white stripes are very classic, yet the peplum is very on-trend.
The next item that I’m loving is this gold statement necklace. It is a great shiny, neutral with some funky shapes. It adds a bit of texture and pop to the look.
I also wore these ripped skinny black ankle jeans. Again, they’re a great everyday item for a casual weekend vibe.
For shoes, I opted for these olive Superga Classic Sneakers. They’re french-inspired, super chic, and incredibly comfortable. They’re also a great neutral piece.
All-in-all, I love this look because it’s a colorful combination of classic pieces with a modern twist.
