CocoLion’s post yesterday with her amazing pastels and black reminded me that I have not worn this coat in a long while. It’s a pretty warm coat, and last winter was mild. But if I don’t layer up or wear something too warm underneath, it’s pretty comfortable.

Unlike Denise, I don’t wear pastels well, unless it’s pale green or blue or some shade in between. But I nodded to the black-pastel combo by wearing the pale blue cashmere scarf from Uniqlo last year, and added the blue camo cashmere beanie.

Underneath is just a basic outfit — AG Harper straights (uncuffed for a change, and a black lightweight sweater. Added the necklace my husband gave me for Christmas since the neckline of this top plays well with it, and the lug platform suede booties that I am loving so much. The finish on the ever-present metallic backpack is getting a bit beat-up, but I love this bag, it’s perfect for pandemic era outings. From six feet away, no one can tell it’s beat up but me!

Worn today to go to the studio and make a print for a client, and run to the post office and stop in a couple of stores for some random items (birthday cards and such). I ended up finding this rug for $30 for our walk-in closet. I don’t know why I never thought to put a rug in there until now, but we love it!
