Bowling in Blue
Mossimo owl sweater (sold out, but adorable styles here and here), Old Navy peacoat (modern version), Else jeans, Aldo handbag, and Mossimo cap toe pumps
I'm trying to channel simple Parisian glamour in a classic peacoat with cropped skinnies and cap toe pumps. While my first instinct on brisk fall days may be to reach for cozy and comfortable ankle boots, there's something undeniably chic about the combination of pumps with cropped skinny jeans.
The wool peacoat is one that's been in my closet for about a decade, which in retrospect, makes it one of my best purchases ever in terms of cost per wear. It's kept me warm on many a cold night throughout the years. The longevity of its classic silhouette and sturdy wool construction has me repeatedly wishing that I'd also bought it in red, gray, and navy.
My style must be evolving; as much as I adore seasonal trends, I'm gaining a newfound respect for simple wardrobe classics.
