Houndstooth








Coat: c/o Choies (less than $40!)
Sweater: Loft (on sale with extra 40% off!)
Jeans: Jolt (old), similar here
Shoes: Nordstrom Rack (old), similar here
Bag: thrifted, similar here (on sale now!)
Ring: Madewell (old), similar here

I'm back from Florida and it is bittersweet. Bitter because it was so nice just to relax for a few days and be in the sun and actually not be stressed out. So it was definitely rough when I got back to work. No doubt it was the opposite of relax. It was sweet because Chicago was surprisingly "warm". I came back to 50 degrees and I really really hope it stays this way! I was able to shove my puffy coat aside and wear this Houndstooth coat (again), comfortably. Honestly, getting this coat was one of my best decision. It has the perfect classic look and versatile. I can wear it with almost anything and it will look great. The best part is that it is only $39.90. I know, I was freaking out about the price too. You'd be surprised that the price did not affect the quality of the coat at all.

  1. I love the way you styled this coat within the shades of the houndstooth pattern. Black and grey will always be classic shades when paired together. Love this coat and this look xo

  3. I love that coat! Plus that bag is so cute, you stole my heart when I read Thrifted. (; It's been on the upper 50's here too this week. So sad when we consider that "warm."

    I hope you had a lovely vacation and find the motivation to make it to the weekend. (:

  23. That coat is amazing, it must be hard to think about putting it away soon when the weather beings to warm up, and honestly 50 doesnt sound too bad.
