Lumi Sherpa Coat

 




I'm loving everything about this look.  We have a little cold front happening now,
which makes me what this outfit and braid to happen now!
The coat looks like a blanket, in a good way.
I would style the coat with this Growing necklace for some visual interest.

Rainy Day Boots: Rag & Bone + Hunter




It's been raining quite a bit here lately so rain boots have been on my mind.   I love to have any excuse to "hunt" any kind of boot ever.   Rain boots in particular are elusive because they need to be comfortable, practical, and also be disguised as a regular boot when it's not raining.

To my delight, this morning I got an email introducing me to Rag and Bone x Hunter's toned down and sophisticated version of wellies. They come in tasteful combinations of navy, army green, and black.   Although I'm a sucker for navy on black, I think I'd get these in black in the mid-calf version because I like a deceptive rain boot.

You can find them at here.

A Lesson in Styling: Humanoid FW 2013

Winter is coming.  Based in the Netherlands, Humanoid's new collection is oh so cozy, textured, and full of subtle prints.   Sometimes I want to wear these layers outside in the *high* of 60F degrees here because a Texas girl can only dream. 



I got these boots.  I'm quite honestly jealous of myself.  They are somewhere in the mid-Atlantic right now and I can't wait to get them.  Look at that metallic sheen-- that's just crazy!

Ray Ban Wayfarers


I'm pretty sure the ray ban wayfarer thing is completely over... which is why I just bought some.  It happened with the J. Lo sunnies, does anyone remember?  Nonetheless, I recently bought myself a pair.  It was mainly motivated by the fact that I mainly wear black but I have about 4-5 pairs of brown sunglasses, which makes no sense.

I noticed that Ray Bans made an unusually dark tortoise colored one, which made me cave in. (see below)  They gave me one of those $20 off for your birthday coupons, which was basically the tax, but every time it's sunny out now, I can't wait to wear them.  Also it's really hard to see my eyes through them so I can basically stare at them without their knowledge.  See, I'm doing it right now in this picture and you can't tell.
