Christmas Lights.

So, this is the best coat, maybe ever. Every time I wear it, I get a million compliments. I bought it during my last trip to Charleston, at Hampden Clothing (my always favorite.) Stacy, the shop owner, picked it out for me (full disclosure – she did give me a discount) and it’s just so good. The best part, besides all the compliments? You can separate it, wearing the under layer as a long vest or the top layer as a cropped jacket. So great.

Lydia and I shot these photos outside of Lord & Taylor. The windows in the city are so great right now, but Lord & Taylor is really getting it right with the trees and the lights. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year over here in New York!

Happy Monday. I am enjoying the day in Charleston before I head back to the city. It was so nice to be here for a couple days. Maybe I should just move here… who knows… 😉

  2. Jess Zimlich says 12.7.15

    Is that a not-so-subtle hint? 😉 I’ve been saying for the past two years that I’m going to plan a trip…maybe 2016 will finally be the year. Happy Monday, Grace!

    Love the coat. I love that it’s a more muted, blush pink as shown in the photos.

    I also love the interest added by the way the front is!

  12. Merritt says 12.7.15

    I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS! I wish we had cool places in Dallas with an abundance of Christmas trees to take photos in front of. It’s gorgeous, and so is your outfit!

    We both live in great cities( I’m in SF) I love NY ,my sister is there. I absolutely fell in love with DC when I visited a couple years ago. I’ll tell you the major difference is the southern men. Gentlemen, a rare breed these days. Wow, it felt great to be noticed, a lot! I guess I’m just used to the more complacent Bay Area types. ( sigh) I’m going to plan a trip to Charleston soon! It looks beautiful.

    P.S. I miss the Windows. We used to do that in San Francisco too. Alas, no more. You can’t beat the Chrsitmas windows in New York!
