this is not about a train








I continue to insist on wearing this coat despite the cold, harsh reality that it is winter in the outside world. It's a hard piece to resist (note the perfectly defined shoulders and bright blush of red), and I feel terrible just letting it hang in my closet without me. In fact, I felt terrible leaving it in the store after trying it on...but I did (someone had to pry it from my hands, of course). This was a wonderfully, amazing Christmas gift and surprise from my FAVORITE brother. He is my only brother, so I suppose the favoritism is implied, but I'm also his favorite sister. Anyways, I found this coat when I went holiday shopping with him and after we parted he apparently went back and snuck the last one in my size (awww!). The rest is Christmas giving history and I am so grateful he brought this gem back into my life!

  17. Gosh, these photos are amazing, love the train tracks! I would also refuse to wear a proper winter jacket if I owned that red beauty! I know I've said it before but it is just delightful! Those pants are awesome too, I adore baggy harem pants with crazy patterns. They are just so comfy!

  27. That coat is simply stunning, it would have been a shame to miss out on it! I love it paired with the graphic black and white pants, it's something I never would have thought of, but it looks so chic here! And the earmuffs look super cozy, they're still on my list for winter.
