The winter wool camel colored coat. I wasn't consciously shopping for one... until the husband actually stubbled across this gorgeous thing. And then when I checked my 'Styling Ever After' Pinterest board after said acquisition I noticed I actually had multiple camel colored coats pinned. So for under $70 I scored a 100% wool, made in the US, vintage but new with tags, totally on trend closet staple. The vintage tags calculated with inflation would put this coat at about $400 today…basically what most wool coats are going for these days. Time to do the happy dance.
The camel color is highly versatile. It pairs perfectly with a chocolate brown, navy blue as well as black….and it also works with a bright bag. Win-win-win.
Since these outfit posts are still very new, I feel like I need to introduce you to this bag. It's my everyday bag from the Kate Spade wellesley collection in the Alessa style. It's very structured, minimalist (minus the color) and sturdy, with tiny feet on the bottom so it doesn't touch the ground. And while the 'speedy' style isn't for everyone since you can't be 100% hands free, I'm a fan. The color is bright, but before I made the purchase I honestly went home and evaluated my closet. It worked with 90% of my current wardrobe, so I was in!
To add pattern I threw on a silk scarf instead of a heavier winter scarf. I think silk scarves are seriously under valued in current wardrobes. I'll tie one on my handbag or throw it around my neck. The best place to find silk scarves is online or in vintage shops. Huge selection.
