Boots: vintage, thrifted
Bracelet (on bag): thrifted
Wine + cognac is one of my favorite color combinations. It is so warm and rich. It always makes me feel pulled together. Add in a few gold accessories and you're done.
I wore this comfy get up to run around all day looking for a new wool coat. You see, I have a great light-weight wool blend trench that I love and, although it is terrific for autumn and spring, it just doesn't cut it for winter. While we've enjoyed and amazingly mild winter so far, I'm fairly certain that winter will not always be so kind and a good wool coat is great for one to have in their arsenal. I don't suggest wearing a donning a shirt with rolled up sleeves to try on no less than a hundred coats. It makes for a lot of unrolling and then rolling back up. The lessons you learn, people, the lessons you learn. One day, I will pass this knowledge down to my daughter and I'm sure she will be forever grateful. Kidding about that last part, of course.
