The Coat

I bought this coat at a flea market several months ago and I have been waiting for the right time to wear it on the blog. It has the most beautiful silky lining and the outside? The buttons alone I could write a book on, or at least a very loving love letter to. The shortened bell sleeves are stunningly executed with green trim and the actual texture of the coat is wonderfully rough and keeps a person so warm. My gosh.

My favorite nail polish right now, Essie in Lilacism! Pastels have been looking really good to me lately, which is odd, because I never used to. As my boyfriend has told me "Wow, you really like pastels." I seem to be wearing them too much.

Look at the texture!

The bracelet I am wearing is a gift from my friend and her mom as a late christmas present. I had admired her mom's bracelet last winter, and they decided to make me one. They collected a bunch of antique catholic charms from flea markets for several months and compiled it all onto one chain. I am in love with this bracelet, I still haven't gotten over the shock of receiving it... and I got it a couple weeks ago...

Vintage coat, Hudson cargo pants, Urban Outfitters suede heels, Yves Saint Laurent gold ring, Sowat Paris silver wing ring, gifted catholic charm bracelet, random red shirt, vintage black purse.

Nice coat :) I love your bracelet too and I'm absolutely infatuated with your sowat ring. I've been admiring from afar ever since you got it.. and ever since Lulu got one too. Sadly, she sold it a couple weeks ago and I missed out! If you ever decide to sell..!

I don't think you wear too many pastels. That coat isn't pastel and the shoes aren't either! The ring you are wearing is so beautiful. I love the jewelry you wear!

That vintage coat is so beautiful on you, especially the texture, and I adore the shortened bell sleeves. Those poppy red UO shoes are a perfect touch of color. Pastel nail lacquers do look great on you; I love that shade from Essie.

I love the olive with red color combination. The coat is wonderful as well. And as a regular reader of your blog, I have noticed your boyfriend notices what you wear which is SO cute. Mine is pretty much blissfully ignorant of my fashion choices.

those red shoes are so divine, i cannot handle it. generally, i steer clear of the tee strap, but damn girl, amazing. also maddeningly coveting that catholic charm bracelet! i love jewelry and devout iconography, but all in one... too much.
