Blue On the Outside

Since the cold and the dark has pushed me inside for most of my pictures I rarely get to share what you would see if you actually saw me walking down the street. Last Sunday afternoon, wearing nothing special beneath my coat, I took a little walk around the neighborhood with Rich. For this reason purposefully pick coats to wear that are a pretty for days that I couldn't be bothered with getting dressed if I'm not really going anywhere.
This coat was an especially lucky find that I bought on Etsy way back in the dead heat of summer. In my head I knew I wanted some kind of Mod, navy blue coat and couldn't get the idea out of my head so I typed in "mod, navy, coat" into an Etsy search and this appeared. It felt like I had willed the perfect winter coverup into existence.

  4. Oh, that coat is just wonderful! I love the gold buttons, too. And from the '60s no less...swoon.
