Casual Collar and V-Neck Sweater

After lots of holiday parties and dressing up, I just wanted to wear something casual for a trip out to the suburbs this weekend.  But of course it’s me, and I have to add something fancy to the whole look - I added a layered crystal necklace underneath my black button-up collar shirt.  And you’ve seen these oxford shoes recently, but they are so fantastic - I’m completely obsessed with them.

And the trip to the suburbs was great…there was a short stop at IKEA and i got some of my art framed and we bought lots of japanese candy at a huge asian market.  A really sweet Saturday overall.

The Oversized Winter Hooded Coat.

I waiver between wanting to wear skin-tight clothing and wanting to wear giant oversized drapey things.  There’s something so fantastic about enveloping my body in warm things - especially in the winter.  

When I saw this vintage camel coat at the thrift store a few weeks ago, I just knew I needed it in my wardrobe.  It’s rich warm luxurious camel colored wool, lined with peach satin.  I love that it can be more fitted using the drawstring toggles.  I’m also a sucker for a giant hood.  It’s just perfect.
