WhatIWore: Nothing makes me feel warm like a faux fur animal print coat! Ok, not completely true (would rather be snuggled under a million covers in bed, but…life). Ok! So this is a pretty basic outfit but made many times more fun via the animal print coat. This is my second vintage version which I found at an antique shop at the end of the season a couple years ago and got for a really great price. My first one had ripped a huge hole in the lining and yes, although I can sew, replacing the lining was going to be a procrastination project. You know the kind… the ones where you could do that instead of paying someone else but it just never gets done because starting a brand new project would be 100x more fun.
When: January 19, 2016
Shades: Karen Walker ‘Super Duper’
Coat: Vintage ‘Safari styled by Fairmoor’ (I believe this is the same coat for sale on etsy, and this and this are similar the same brand)
High Waisted Flare Jeans: Frame Denim
Booties: Rag + Bone
Where: Coffee Shop Laptop Sesh
I’ve partnered my coat with a classic chambray and denim combo, a pairing I’ve loved for years. I like how these high waisted flare jeans balance out the volume of the coat and I just sort of feel like a late sixties vintage babe today. It’s also my first morning back in the groove with regular babysitters and getting out of the house and it feels great!
