I was skeptical about this coatigan (coat + cardigan hybrid) when I bought it, so I am happy that this outfit came to pass. The piece itself is beautiful — so many neat details — which is why I couldn’t resist it; but, at the same time, it’s quite a bit quirkier than my current style. While it’s true that on weekends, I sometimes swing towards the boho end of the style spectrum, it usually happens when I wear dresses or skirts — almost never with pants. But why not? Somehow, the juxtaposition of the “frilly” topper and the jeggings/moto boots combo works. Maybe it’s all in the attitude?
By now, you guys know that I am addicted to coloured skinny jeans; I have a bazillion of them. They are *so* easy, though — and comfortable too. Currently, my favourite brands are AG, Pilcro, and Rag & Bone. I was thrilled to find this burgundy pair (along with an olive one!) at Goodwill. Nothing beats finding premium denim for under $10, especially when it comes in one of your fave colours. My skinny jean rainbow is one step closer to being complete.
