A Coat for Winter

This is my burnt orange quilted jacket. It’s slightly oversized, but oh-so gorgeous. I bought it several weeks ago, but realized I had completely forgotten to share it! It features the cutest duffle detailing. Oh boy I love it. I think it will literally be getting me through winter! I also wore my vintage faux leather peach shorts (my favourite!) and a Katies blouse with navy neck tie detail. The shoes are my vintage winklepicker-esque boots. They are cracking a wee bit now, but I can’t stop wearing them!

I also wanted to mention a wee thank you to my lovely twitter followers who checked to see if I was okay today! Christchurch had two more sizable earthquakes. It was very scary, but luckily everyone is okay – though I can’t say the same for the poor buildings!

  1. Great outfit post. I love how you show enough pictures for us to get a feel for the outfit, but not 10 very similar ones that will just bore us. Thank you!

  12. Although it is summer where I am, I was busily scanning ebay for a coat just like that!! hehe..I nearly found one I love, but I’m gonna sleep on it. It’s not nearly as awesome as yours! Burnt orange and quilted and a duffel coat? Tres Chic!!
