Do As I Say... (See Jane Wear)


J Crew coat, Gap sweater, French Connection skirt (old), 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, Enzo Angiolini boots,  ScoopNYC neck warmer, CatbirdNYC rings (c/o and an awesome gift idea!)
Do as I say, not as I do is the old adage we've all heard.  I always tell my clients at work that when you live in a freezing city like Chicago, that the more coats, the merrier.  They're essentially an outfit in itself and you spend more than enough time wearing them.  Well, from what you've seen, I only wear this coat.  That may be true, but do as I say, not as I do (I do wear other coats, though--I promise).

This coat is absolutely gorgeous. I need a warmer one though for when winter really hits Austria. Like one with down feathers... :)

Completely agree with you about collecting coats - when we moved to NY two years ago, I decided I needed one in almost every color/shape/style. It definitely comes in handy :)

i could not agree more! my husband gave me the nickname "coats" because i have so many. my argument is that in a cold boston winter, your coat is essentially your outfit! :)

i have an entire half section of a large closet devoted to blazers and my winter jackets.... it is freezing here as well, and i definitely take advantage of changing it up!

A sea of gray and I'm in love. Super cute and I also love that you threw in that pretty blue purse.

Samantha said...

If it were a less awesome coat, I'd consider being mad. I'm not ;)

I have the exact opposite problem here in the South. I always want to buy cute coats in the winter but I just can't justify buying them! I have coats from high school (I'm 24) that look brand new because I only wear them once or twice a year. Maybe I'll take your advice and splurge on one anyways :)

I love the structure and simplicity of that bag! It's masculine in a way but at the same time oh so girly!

I can't blame you for putting that coat on repeat - a great coat (particularly J. Crew coats) are such an amazing wardrobe staple that should see the light of day again and again. I STILL wear the J. Crew coat I bought in 2003...I know it will stay in style forever, too! You look gorgeous!
