Some changes to my schedule have kept me on the go. When the cold sets in, so does the temptation to grab uggs and a down jacket every day. In order to keep my personal style in check when it’s chilly – I can’t really roll into business meetings looking like the michelin man- I went on the hunt for a sweater coat that isn’t just pretty but actually warm. I ended up with what I think is the perfect solution. The aptly titled “blanket-coat” kept me warm and met my personal style standards. Hard to find these days.
I found it at Peruvian Connection: “artisan apparel for nomads and romantics” sounded intriguing. I wore it with all black to keep things feeling chic. I would advise motorcycle pants and a ribbed black turleneck (a must-have for the season, make sure you have one on hand at all times.)
I have been in need for a basic black leather tote so I grabbed the newbury tote from the site as well and got a surprise when I found out that a little strap inside converts it to a bucket shape. Two-in-one! It was one of those items that I got and didn’t know how I lived without it beforehand. A few other things I added to the mix include a big-brimmed black hat, a southwestern-style belt, and black boots with a stacked heel (I’ll put a few suggestions in the widget below).
