Expect to be seeing a lot of coats on the blog now that the weather is finally cooling down. This has got to be one of my favorites. I thrifted it awhile ago and it has been so versatile and comfortable! I've been wanting a jacket with a belted waist for a long time, so this was a no-brainer. I have worn it with everything from jeans to fancy dresses and it works so well for both!

Yes, I did match my tights to my hat, what of it? :) In my wildest dreams this hat made me look like Ingrid Bergman. I always wish I could exude that much effortless class and mystery ever day.

I have had this dress for a long time. It was one of those Target clearance finds probably over 5 years ago. I bought it because I thought it would be great to teach in. It is super comfortable, easy to layer, and even has pockets! Perfect timeless plaid and matching skinny belt never hurt either.


I hope you all had a great Monday! So blessed to have all of you in my life...speaking of which, I just noticed I have over 70 followers what?!  How in the world did that happen! Thank you all who read my little piece of the internet, it makes my day :)

God Bless!

Plus there are those of us who don't follow the blog, but check it every day. I have all of the blogs that I read bookmarked into different categories (you are in my folder of "RL friends".. I also have medical friends, food blogs, etc). I check each group of blogs every night, but I won't show up as a follower. So you probably have more than you even know. :)

Lovely vintage cuteness! And that last photo is fantastic!

You are so lovely in this. As for Bergman, I think exotic locales like Morocco and South American help with the mystery bit! ;)

Such a cute coat!! I love it! I just saw a similar one at Target over the weekend and kind of wanted to buy it. I'm such a sucker for a good tweed pattern! And I'm kind of addicted to coats!

Lady, I could never judge you for matching your tights to your hat. ;) I'm all about matchy-matchy outfits! I think it's rather awesome when you find two things to match like that, don't you? Hehe <3

Glad you're getting to start wearing your coats. And I adore those gloves and that necklace! Such lovely little accessories they are.
