Bollywood Barn Coat

Dollar Store Sunnies, Gifted Scarf, Coat: D’s Mom, Sweater (not pictured): Bass, Hurley Jeans: Plato’s Closet, Bronx Boots & Headband: Stella Mae, Ring: FlorenceIt’s no secret I collect coats, so when D’s mom was cleaning out her closet  and came across this Indian made coat from her late twenties she saved it for me. She altered it a bit creating the perfect cross between a barn coat and a swing coat complete with a cute bell shape.

It was the perfect weight for holding off the rather crisp fall wind while running weekend errands downtown… and by errands I mean a stop for maple lattes at Uncommon Grounds, browsing used cds at Pure Pop (we left with Amy Winehouse & Marvin Gaye), and indulging at Logan’s of Vermont.

what did you wear this weekend?

  5. I’m loving that coat! So great.

  6. You can never have too many coats when you live in a colder climate. I like the scarf!

  7. I really love this coat of yours, the color is so lovely and classic and the shape is so wearable! Plus, it’s amazing with those killer cowboy boots. You just can’t go wrong with an outfit that has cowboy boots. 🙂

  8. Ah, just looking at you in this coat makes me feel warm. Lol.

    • Cjaj, has the snow started to fly in your neck of the woods yet? Our peaks already have snow on them too!

      • We’ve had some snow nearby but it hasn’t really hit us yet. We usually don’t see snow till late December, early January. I’ll be coming to borrow your coat for when that happens
