I talk about the weather a lot in my outfit posts. This is because 85% of the time my outfits are assembled based on the temperature and precipitation. We Minnesotans are ruled by our temperamental climate, and although we had one unexpected 90+ degree day last week, it’s been a relatively cool spring. So I’m still happily layering, and wearing this eBayed jacket often. I love the shape and lack of giant moto lapels, but man, is it ever a cat hair-magnet. read more

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. read more
