a new coat

ImageImage

Isabel Marant for H&M wool double-breasted coat; 7 For All Mankind ‘Gwenevere’ Skinny Jeans in dark grey (old); Steve Madden Hilight Wedge Sneakers in black; Old Navy Plaid Flannel Scarf.

Put together. That’s how I felt as soon as I put on my new Isabel Marant for H&M wool coat. I love the masculine vibe and the slouchy fit. This coat reminds me of my father’s old wool dress overcoat that I wore to death when I was a teen. I loved that coat because it was my dad’s, but I also loved how it provided instant polish to my outfits. I feel like my jeans and sneakers are somehow elevated, even if it’s by a small degree, with the new coat.

Enjoy your weekend! xo

Boden Autumn Breton Long Sleeve Top in Charcoal Marl & Red Stripe (old, but other colors here); Nordstrom Hinge Faux Shearling Vest (old); New York & Company Jeggings in Blue (old); Modern Vintage ‘Frannie’ Cognac Boots (old); J.Crew Factory Flower Lattice Necklace (old).

Vests are great in keeping you warm but without the major bulk. You can still wear your coat over your outfit without sleeves getting jammed somewhere around your biceps. Winter hasn’t even officially started and I’m over it.

Vince striped sweater coat (old); Warehouse turtleneck (very old); New York & Company Jeggings in Black (old); DKNYC ‘Oril’ Wedge Boots (old); Vintage gold pendant double necklace; J.Crew Factory Leopard Calf Hair Bangle; Michael Kors tortoise shell & gold watch (old).

Sweater coats are the bomb when the temps are below freezing outside. This Vince sweater coat has a hood, which I’m using to retain my body heat. So, Obi-Wan Kenobi checking in, lol.

How are you keeping warm–sweaters, layers, a trip to Turks & Caicos?

LOFT Striped Cotton Long Sleeve Tee in Gravel Grey; 7 For All Mankind ‘Gwenevere’ Skinny Jeans in Dark Grey (old); Old Navy Plaid Flannel Scarf (Red sold out but available in Grey); Report ‘Marks’ Bootie in Luggage (old).

I matched the relatively warm but grey day outside. I added a bright red plaid scarf and cognac boots for some much needed pops of color.

The weekend can’t come soon enough!

slouchy lace-ups

Isabel Marant for H&M sweatshirt, leather pants, necklace, cuff bracelet; Steven by Steve Madden ‘Madee’ leopard smoking flats (old).

This Isabel Marant for H&M outfit is crazy comfortable. I could seriously wear this outfit everyday and just change up the shoes. The sweatshirt is cut generously, I bought mine in a medium size. I had to go up one size from my usual for the lace-up leather pants, so they have a little slouch going on too.
