My parents were in town last weekend, and we did our best to show them a good time. After the St. Paul Gangster Tour, we headed over to Hudson, WI, for a little shopping and exploring. I scored big as you’ll soon see.

I first saw this coat back in February, when Audi and I visited the Eileen Fisher showroom. I kept my eyes peeled for it, waited for it to go on sale, and then pounced. My plan was to wear this coat like a fancy hoodie, a la my Prairie Underground models. And I may still … but it’s a bit crinkly and loud for regular indoor wear, so we’ll see. Perfect for a day of hopping about town and activities that don’t require coat-removal, though.

The main event in Hudson is Abigail Page Antique Mall, as far as I’m concerned, and I’ve scored a good 25% of my costume jewelry there. So, naturally, I took the ‘rents. And although I’d promised myself I wouldn’t buy anything, these fringed boots were a mere $28, fit perfectly, and were far too fabulous to leave behind.

I wore the boots on Sunday, along with this kangaroo scarf, also purchased at Abigail Page on a previous Hudson trip. I tied it up like so with this horsey scarf that Audi sent me. Because, you know, horses and ‘roos are meant to be worn together.

  • I love those boots! they’re so unique and fun :)!

  • I love both outfits, but am especially drawn to the second one, perhaps because it is more casual, which is where I am in my life at the moment. Or perhaps it is the fringed boots that I am drooling over! And the double scarf is brilliant. I am trying to analyze how you tied in on. I am intrigued by how people can make a scarf-around-the-neck look so stunning, and SO EFFORTLESS/1 I feel like my attempts at wearing a scarf look so contrived, but I think I will try your ‘two-scarves-in-one’ idea today. Thanks for the inspiration.
