All Black Everything.

J.Crew Wool Melton Swing Coat

So…. I’m not sure why I look so pissed off in these photos, but it’s kinda funny. Maybe it’s my super static hair… or maybe my ankles were cold. Who knows. I was not actually pissed, for the record… I just look it! I really love the oversized silhouette of this coat. The fabric is stiffer than that of my other coats so it holds its shape quite nicely. Also… my shoes just went on sale and are now half off. I can’t say enough good things about them… comfy + the glitter sole is so fun.

Hope you guys had a great weekend. Mine was jam packed with activities. A pedicure date with one best friend; dinner with another best friend (and her adorable 2.5 year old) much needed highlights, Hitha’s baby shower, and yesterday: afternoon tea at the St. Regis with ten blogger girlfriends. (Have you ever gone for fancy tea? It was so much fun!) All of that excitement would ordinarily have me a little bit exhausted, but it was actually quite the opposite – I’m energized from having gotten to see so many of my close friends.

PS – I’ve updated both the homepage and the Stripe Shop with a few new faves.

    How warm is that coat?? I’m considering buying it to go to college in a snowy mountain area, but only if it’s actually warm enough.

      Hi Kerry, It’s not very warm to be honest. But I think it’s sold out, as this post is from last winter!
      J.Crew does have other (much warmer) options, though.
