Style File 12.19.11


Rowan and I are out running christmas errands today. It’s getting so close to Christmas! One thing that I do love about winter in the Northeast is that coats make up your outfit for a good portion of the year. Throw on jeans, shoes, coat, a scarf and you are out the door. Of course, you have a shirt on underneath, but your coat is never coming off, so you don’t have to put much thought into it. A nice coat is an excellent investment piece to add to your wardrobe.

Are you done Christmas shopping? I am trying, but it isn’t working out so well. Christmas shopping+malls+babies=disasters and bloody knuckles.


Outfit Details:
Plaza Wool Coat: J.Crew (c/o Shop it to Me)
Fur Collar: Vintage (it’s been in my family forever)
Belt: Forever 21 (similar)
White Button Up: jcpenney
Grey Skinnies: Target
Bismuth Booties: Seychelles
Bracelets: J.Crew, Vintage, handmade

  1. The skinny belt is truly the perfect finishing touch! Love love love this! <3

  3. I love this look, it’s so casual and comfy, especially the boots, I’ve been dying to find a pair that is not over 3″” heels, unfortunately for me, I don’t think that’s going to happen. By the way, I just notice this things but you are supposed to remove that little cross thread from your coat holding the two ends in the lower back, just thought I’d share that with you. =)

  4. great coat! It’s so flattering 🙂

  5. The booties are adorable! Perfect shopping outfit!

  20. Great point about the coat. I thought at first, WOWZA! but then you finished your thought by saying of course you need to wear a shirt underneath. That second to last picture I was thinking “Do you hear what i hear…?” I’m breathing Christmas music every second at this point. You look great! xo

  21. the pop of fluorescent color is so great! 🙂

  22. I was inspired by this post and found myself a faux fur stole at my local thrift store. Yay! And thanks for the inspiration!
