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).

  9. 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 :)

  10. 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! :)

  14. Well that coat is perfection, so it's okay! I love this outfit!
    (I have 4 coats but I really only wear one or two....the other two are old and from forever 21 so they stink, haha)

  18. 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 :)

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

  21. 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!
