unspecified-20Happy hump day, friends! Although the weather has been fairly spazzy as of late, I still gravitate towards this coat. It’s cute, inexpensive and allows me to layer as much or as little as I want. That’s something to think about when buying a coat: Do you need it super warm for the coldest months of the year, or do you want a medium weight so you can wear it Fall/Winter/Spring? This is NOT my “it’s snowing and -5 degrees outside” coat. Haha, at that point I stop caring how cute I look and put on my snowboarding jacket. Who cares if I match when it’s that cold.

Ok, back to this look. Stripes are the best thing ever. They’re classic, timeless, and you can wear them with a print (gasp, I know,) if you’re really feeling daring. Style Tip: The easiest way to “mix prints” is pick one that is a stripe. Consider it your neutral.

Paired with my favorite ankle boots and the LV for the complete look! (Side note, I didn’t realize that LV leather handle/strap colors darken as the years pass. It’s called patina. (Interesting post about that, here btw.) Regardless, that freaks me out. The idea that if I wear lotion and touch the handles it will darken faster is not cool. Stupid problem to have, no?

I digress. (As I do.) I must also note that these pictures are taken outside of a favorite doughnut place of mine. There is always time for doughnuts, people.
