Bite of the Chill


Coat - Need Supply, Top - Free People (borrowed from my friend Cheryl), Corduroys - Raven Denim, Flats - Pour La Victoire, Bag - Velvetine

I have a million things on my to-do list on the moment, but there just doesn't seem to be enough time to get to do them all (even the most simple of things, like pick up a new tube of toothpaste). I'm surprised a lot of the times that I am even able to update this blog as regularly as I do. With work, my social life, and everything else I try to take on in-between, I can sometimes be left feeling burnt out. But in the end, I know that I love being busy and working on projects that keep my creative juices flowing. I wouldn't have it any other way. I always like to say, let's bring on the next thing and see where we can take it. How is that to start your Monday off?

Okay, back to fashion. Coats, coats, and coats. Back in Cali, I never had a real reason to wear a coat. Last December, there was a week that I was literally in shorts and sunbathing in my front yard everyday. Today, I'm basically shivering in my boots. But I love that I now can wear a coat because the weather persists on it, and not just because I want to (even though this reason is just as legit). The retro pattern on this one leaves me head over heels. I could live in it all year long if I could. I just picked up my first real winter coat yesterday. I gave in and got myself a down puffer jacket because I know I will die without one once December rolls around. Come on winter, bring on everything you got. I'm ready for ya. I think.

I like your pants so much, and your lipstick color.

Lucky you, in my country the autumn, winter and even spring can be very very cold.
Your coat wouldnt help ;)

The shoes you wear, we can wear only in summer.

I love the look of the nude flats-they always trick me into thinking someone isn't wearing shoes (even when I'm wearing mine)!

Marie @ Lemondrop Vintage said...

I have far too many coats and not enough cold! I am a little envious of people with winter (I say that now, but later might change my mind...)

Gorgeous jacket and I also love the colour of the pants!

Bianca said...

Good look! I hope youre ready for snowpocalyspe like last year haha! They said this year would be worst. Regardless, isnt there something so womanly of owning a real coat. Its so 1950s, getting a coat from your love and so forth...ah, maybe im too romantic

Nice colours - perfect for autumn, or as you guys call it fall. I love the bag too. Can you carry an ipad or yoga top and shorts in it? It seems reasonably sized and your favourite.

Pearl said...

I love this outfit! The burgundy pants, the jacket and your lip color - they are perfect! I just graduated from law school and moved across the country and not working is a huge shock to the system. I have given myself a lot of project to keep me from going crazy and to work towards something - I love that you bring up this topic! It is always good to have goals, conquer them and then take it to the next step :) And on a less deep note ;) I love that the weather is cold enough to layer and wear heavy, gorgeous coats - your jacket here is amazing! Definitely has that menswear element to it. Wow - this is more like a letter than a comment ha!

I love your coat and shoes!! You are so adorable!

vonilicious said...

There's a crispness and a certain feeling winter brings and something about putting on a coat that I like. Though not for too long (guess that's why I'm back in Florida and not even trying to go back to NYC).
