For some reason, I wore this exact outfit three times before remembering to get a photo of it. The tunic was a birthday find way back in January, but didn’t get much wear until the weather started warming up since it’s pretty thin and can’t be layered terribly easily. But I love that it’s a ready-made outfit – just add leggings – and has  a sort of post-apocalyptic fashion plate vibe to it. At least, when the aforementioned leggings are leather …

Luckily it’s also voluminous enough that the hole can be easily disguised. Or so I hope!

I’ve got a Pinterest board dedicated to camel coat outfits because this color and style of coat is one I’ve admired for eons and always struggled to style. This coat was a steal on eBay and I loved it for its simple cut and subtle faux leather accents. It is, however, a little bit lightweight for outdoor wear and a little bit thick for indoor wear. Since I’m always cold, regardless of the season, I’ll probably just wear it like an indoor jacket and ignore any side-eye I might get.
