Oversized Wool Coat & Chunky Knit Sweater

On of the things on my to-do list for my Thanksgiving trip back home, was to hit up some thrift stores. Since time went by so quickly, I ended up going to just one store but that trip was definitely worth it. When you think of Miami the last thing that comes to mind is coats or winter coats for that matter. However, I have found my best winter coats in Miami and that has a lot to do with people from the North moving down south and realizing they really don’t need coats. That is why one of the first things I did when I walked into the store was head over to the coats section. While several of the coats were either too large or too damaged, I found THE ICONIC MaxMara wool coat just hanging there waiting for me! You can just imagine the excitement on my face when I realized that I found a $3K+ coat for only $8.00, score! The coat is in near perfect condition, all it needed was a fresh dry clean and it was ready to go. I will say though that sadly, the belt was missing but that can easily be fixed.

Outfit Details

This coat evokes comfort, so I decided to wear it for the first time with a chunky knit sweater, that was also purchased at Goodwill. The coat has the prefect amount of room  for layering or for wearing those really big chunky sweaters. It is extremely warm and I can see myself wearing it for those really cold winter days. Since this was a casual look, I wore a pair of light blue jeans, a pair of black booties and one of my favorite Gap purchases, this beautiful lambskin hobo bag. To complete this look, I accessorized with my favorite accessory of them all, my dog, Sir Teddy.

Fighting The Monday Blues

Happy Monday!

Most of you have already gone back to school or today was your day back. Today was my first day back and it went totally wrong. I woke up late, got lost trying to find my class and arrived 45 minutes LATE to class. On top of that, I totally forgot I was taking statistics this semester and I am so not looking forward to it. So in honor of my misery, what better way to express it through my clothes. All black everything.

The Outfit

I bought this midi dress at Zara this weekend for $19.99; as some of you might know Zara is having a major sale right now so I got me a few pieces. I tried to get as much summery clothes as I could, since lets face it, I live in Florida. The dress has a zipper in the middle which adds a bit of edgyness to it. That is why I wore these kick ass boots with the dress and of course my killer backpack. To keep thing awesome – purple lipstick and my super cool sunglasses.

Outfit Total: $64.99

  • Dress: $19.99
  • Boots: $40.00
  • Backpack: $5.00

Happy Fashion.
