worn and weathered








Meet the oldest thing in my closet. Actually I am exaggerating, but this jacket has been there and back (and around the block) throughout my high school years and for the past three winters. Honestly, it is not the warmest thing I own, but has stayed with me through even the coldest, sub-degree weather. Crazy I know, and it might just be the reason why I despise the cold so much -- well maybe not, but something warmer could possibly help my cause. This jacket endured countless trips to the cleaners, and it might need to be retired in the near future as I am getting a new (warmer) replacement for Christmas. But secretly, I don't think I'll ever stop wearing it.

  5. Probably you'll have withdrawal symptoms when it goes, and won't know how to style a winter outfit without it! But seriously, it's all about being warm!

    Love that picture where you're sitting on the edge with your sunglasses looking blissed out, # 5 I guess!

  8. I'm an advocate of keeping items around for a long time and reusing them year after year. It seems there are always new ways to work in quality or well loved older items. Sometimes I keep things beyond all reason and logic, when I haven't worn them for years but remember how dear they were at one time, and then they end up coming around again. Like my Doc Martens I wore to death in high school, sat in my closet for almost ten years, and have made a couple of reappearances lately in the midst of the nostalgic renaissance of the brand that has been building lately.

  17. Adorable! I would never guess that your coat is older.
    Everyone is doing outside photos! Bravo - I know the feeling of totally freezing out in the cold.
    I despise it too :(
