Knit Hat: Forever 21, Sunnies: BSJ, Coat: ebay, Ibex Vest (similar), not pictured), long sleeve tee (not pictured): J.Crew, Knit Leggings: TJ Maxx, Wellies: Dick’s Sporting Goods (similar), Gifted Bag, Mittens, & ScarfThis coat is a lot like my first (and only) car, a 97 forest green Ford Taurus with mint green interior, aptly named Kermit. Kermit was never perfect but I loved it because it was my first car. Eventually Kermit and I had to part ways (near the end stepping on the brakes was a total crapshoot) but that’s neither here nor there.
This jacket, ok so it’s more like a glorified robe, doesn’t just resemble Kermit in color alone; like my first car this coat was better in theory than practice. I’d expected an oversized, “faux” wool wrap coat. What ended up with was an extremely plush, hooded, Robin Hood style robe. Like Kermit it’s not perfect but while it’s working I’m gonna wear it

Jacket: Stowe Mercantile, Blouse (originally my moms), Necklace c/o 6pm, Skinnies: Gap, Ankle Boots: Urban Outfitters
Oh hi guy leaning on the hood of your car three parking spaces away. Your tractor beam like stares really made these photos look and feel so natural. I’m not the least bit uncomfortable. I am however kicking myself over the ten extra minutes I spent futzing with my camera in the hopes that you would leave. Not only did you stick around (in fact you were still there when I left) but my camera battery died after these two photos.
All snark aside, I love this look. My mom’s teal blouse and the leopard booties I bought myself for Christmas provide the perfect pops of color and effectively snapped me and my wardrobe out of the winter blahs.
How are you injecting color into your winter wear?
Knit Hat: UO, Trench: handmade by D’s grandmother for his mother, Sweater: Bass, Knit Dress: Paris, Leopard Ring: Charlotte Russe, Boots: Florence
Yesterday the weather got the best of me. I stepped outside and it started to rain. Now I don’t mind the rain so much it was the accompanying winds that really got me. I was that person on Main St flaying and fighting with their inside out umbrella. The fact that I was in a classic trench made it all the more comical and somewhat fitting. All I was missing was a newspaper and a run in my nonexistent pantyhose.
How do you dress for wind and rain?

Dollar Store Sunnies, Scarf: Carol Maguire Home, Jacket: Wilsons Leather, Blouse: Goodwill, Belt: Target, Jeans: Gap, Heels: ALDOHave I mentioned how much I love this jacket? For the chillier mornings it’s warm and windproof without being bulky. To keep the look from being too dark I added a pop of coral with my Carol Maguire Home peony scarf and ALDO heels. This outfit is just another riff on my favorite look, jeans and a tee. Blue ankle length pants in lieu of traditional jeans, a ruffle front blouse a feminine twist on the white tee, and a leopard belt for fun.
What’s your favorite look to recreate with new pieces?

Dollar Store Sunnies, Blouse: AE, Khakis: Gap, Flats: Target, Gifted Accessories
Sometimes I feel sexier in an androgynous outfit than I do in an LBD and heels. The color, fit, and feel of these khakis is exactly what I’ve always wanted in a pant and I want them in every color. It may look casual but it feels fabulous.
