Plaid and Flare Jeans

Hello, everyone!

Here are my flare jeans again. They’re so comfortable and such a great change from my skinny jeans. Pairing them with this flannel shirt gives this outfit a bit of a country/Western feel, but being a Tennessee girl, I’m OK with that.  I also thought a hat might be cute with this outfit. I think the hat looks OK, but I’m still not sure if I’m a hat person. What do you think? Hat or no hat?

Black Coat Roundup

Hello, everyone!

I was going through my coats a few weeks ago and realized the sad state of my black wool coat. I bought it years ago and have resisted replacing it because I like it so much. Unfortunately, the lining is completely ripped in one of the sleeves, and I can’t quite button it anymore (boooo for aging and no longer fitting into all my clothes), so it’s time to retire my coat and find a new one. A black winter coat is a great staple to have in your wardrobe, and while I also encourage having a coat in a fun color (I have a red one … no surprise there), I consider a black coat an essential item. I’ve included a roundup of some of my favorite options below. As of this post, all of the coats below are $225 or less, and most of them are $200 or less. I imagine they’ll all be on sale as the holidays approach, so keep an eye out if you’re on the hunt for a better deal!

Faux Leather Dress

Hello, everyone!

I snagged this dress when Piperlime closed earlier this year, and I’m so glad I did. I love the rich camel color, and the fit-and-flare silhouette is my favorite. I was a bit wary of buying it because all of Piperlime’s inventory was final sale at the time, but I’ve been really happy with this dress and have worn it several times. It pairs perfectly with a white button-up shirt underneath and my leopard print pumps for a work-appropriate look.
