Winter Coat

All photos by me
Outfit Details:
Black Gloves
Black Coat (Similar here and here)
Navy Sweater (Similar)
Brown Riding Boots (Similar here, here and here)

I took these outfit photos when it snowed in Portland a few weeks back. It rains so much here that I hardly ever get to change out of my rain jacket, so I quickly jumped at the opportunity to don this military style coat. My favorite part of this jacket is the shiny gold buttons in the front and back, because they make this piece look very elegant. Another thing that I love about this coat is the way it flares out at the waist, which gives the piece more feminine shape in my opinion. Since my outfit was pretty dark, I decided to wear my brown riding boots to break things up and add a subtle pop of color.

Since I was absent from the blog last week,  I missed out on blogging about my blogiversary and birthday. I can’t believe that I’ve managed to keep this blog running after starting it two years ago on my 25th birthday. I started this project when I was in a very weird space in my life, and it’s been so wonderful to have a creative outlet and have the opportunity to be part of a supportive community. I’m looking forward to another year of connecting with my fellow bloggers and readers, and continuing to grow my little corner of the Internet.

As always, thanks for reading!
