New Coat Tackles Winter Blues

Hip hip hooray its Friday!
You guys know I am a sucker for pretty scenery, but sometimes time doesn't allow for a trek to a scenic backdrop just for outfit photos.  I snapped these in my back yard before heading to work earlier this week, because I wanted to show off this pretty vintage coat I thrifted last weekend! There's nothing like a new coat to help tackle those winter blues! It's warm and its plaid and it has gorgeous gold buttons and blue velvet pockets!  I am pretty sure it was actually a children's coat because it is marked as a size 14 XL and the arms are a tiny bit too short.  But for $12.99 and my dream print, I'll take it!
 Outfit Details:
Plaid Coat & Boots: Vintage // thrifted
Tights & Scarf: Target
White Blouse: Converse
     I wanted to thank everyone for your nice words and helpful advice about the lull in my Etsy shop I wrote about in the last post.  It's seriously so nice to sometimes use this blog as a virtual sounding board to bounce ideas off of and get advice from all you lovely gals, and the shop is already starting to look up again!  This adorable little red corduroy jumper is one of the items I recently added to the shop for valentines day! It even has a tiny polka dot print on it and little pin-wheel flowers. Pairing a collared shirt over a sleeveless dress or jumper has been pretty much my favorite thing to wear to work this winter as the collared shirt makes it a little more dressy and the layers add some extra warmth!
     Any fun plans for the weekend? I am planning on going on a little adventure either into Rocky Mountain National Park or a day trip to Denver, we haven't quite decided yet! I just feel like wandering around a bit going into shops, exploring, and eating yummy food! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. That dress is the cutest! I love how it's corduroy with a print, you don't usually see that. I cannot believe you thrifted those boots. They are magical in every way. And what a fabulous find with that coat! It definitely fits your style perfectly. Looking lovely friend!

  9. Such a cute coat! I'm very jealous. I got a new coat in the modcloth sale, and I can't wait for it to come! South Carolina is currently experiencing it's first ice of the season... no winter wonderlands for us, just people who don't know how to drive in the cold!

  16. I can't believe you are selling that jumper! We are twins today - I am wearing a navy cord jumper with a bird print blouse underneath. I have recently become obsessed with jumpers - so cute and easy. :) Love your new thrifted coat too! :) Nice find, my friend! xo

  26. What an awesome find on that coat & I that dress is too cute! I can't picture a child in such an adult-looking coat but I then I remember how they always dressed the little ones up more back in the day. great find on those boots too, I always hope to thrift some awesome boots but it seems like it's been years now. can't wait to hear about your weekend, either of those plans sounds awesome! & thank you for your super sweet comment on my last post :)
