Stripes + Toggle.

Burberry Toggle Coat 1

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you all had a great weekend. If you follow me on insta, then you know this… but mine was extremely food centric. I usually spend most of my weekend working on the blog and this weekend I did no such thing. Lots of brunching, lots of cooking! On Saturday I went to barre class and then had brunch at Good. I spent the day reading and cooking (I finished The Girl on the Train – so good. People are calling it the next Gone Girl and I can totally see that) and made bacon jam (post about that coming soon.) Yesterday was another brunch (this time at The Dutch) and an Oscars party. Whew! Now it’s back to work today.

This outfit is a favorite combination of mine. Stripes and a toggle coat. I bought the striped dress last year from Theory and it was such a good purchase… their dresses are always my favorite. The fit is always awesome and the pieces last for years.

And a funny one for good measure. I’ve been working on stepping up my outfit photo game a bit… but sometimes you just have to laugh at the ridiculousness of posing in the street. Blogging is awesome, but this part is sort of awful.

  7. Hi Grace! As awkward as you felt, the pictures came out beautiful. I agree though, taking blog photos in “the wild” is a challenge for me too. The good news is that NYC has a sort-of anonymity about it- people are so used to the daily sidewalk freakshow that they tend to ignore most photo shoots (and almost everything else) and walk/drive/bike right past it without a second thought. Now, in CLE (I moved here 3 years ago)… I AM the (stylish) freakshow. Lol.
    Stay warm! XO, Stella

  12. Perfectly stylish and functional — great winter outfit!

    Uniqlo has a couple of great toggle coats — they are mostly sold out right now (a few left at super sale prices), but definitely worth checking out next season if you’re in the market. I picked up a bright red one last month — I don’t wear it all the time, but when I do I feel a bit like a grown-up Red Riding Hood 🙂
