Denim on Denim + Brown Oversized Coat

If there is one outfit you can never go wrong with is, denim on denim. Just like denim, it’s a classic and classic never goes out of style. I wanted an easy no brainer outfit for work because (and if you’re office allows) go ahead and pull out your denim shirt and rock that denim on denim look. It’s effortless and a no brainer AND you can practically accessorize it in any which way you feel.

I don’t really know what era acid wash became a thing but all I know is that in 5th grade, I started the trend. My mother accidentally bleached my favorite pair of blue jeans. My options were either I wear them or donate them. Being the rebellious, fearless and fashion risk-taker I’ve always been, I said, meh, I’ll wear them to school. The next day at lunch time, Lesly, an oversized flunked out 5th grader had A LOT to say about my “poor girl” jeans but I laughed it out. I admit though, my cheeks got extremely red and I do remember being embarrassed but I got over it and wore them over and over again. As an adult, I’m still wearing acid wash but of course, I traded in the jeans to a top. In order to keep this casual cool, I added a pair or leopard heels and an oversized coat for warmth.

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.

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.

Coat: MaxMara, purchased at Goodwill: $8.00 / Jeans: Gap, $7.99 / Shoes: Gap, $50.00 / Handbag: Gap, $100.00 / Dog: priceless 🙂 / Outfit total: $166.00
