There's this playground on the outskirts of my apartment complex that I never see people in. After a year living of so close to it, I've barely seen anyone use the playground or baseball fields at all, so every once in a while I'll sit on a bench & do some reading or my friends and I will use the swings like responsible twenty-year-olds.
Did you ever have a dress or a pair of shoes or a coat that you LOVED to wear as a six year old? That piece of clothing that your parents only let you wear on "special occasions" that you just wanted to dress-up in and wear everyday? This coat totally reminded me of those good 'ol days. Much like the glittery mary janes that my mom only let me wear to my uncle's wedding and not to school when I was eight, I've been DYING to break this jacket out all season. It was still on the warmer side, but as soon as I saw them clouds this morning, that sucker was getting worn out the door. Cynthia Vincent makes the greatest jackets & blazers, I swear, and this guy is no exception. I love gaudy faux fur coats, but this has a 70's-glam flavor to it, so I had to give it a little edge.
I've been really digging this Bodhi bag too. Drawstrings are usually kinda hard for me to style, but this piece has really great hardware to go with the paneled leather & calf hair. Not to mention enough pockets to keep my stuff organized for class. All in all, it was a ready-for-anything kind of ensemble for a day that started i class & eded up in the playground with a George Harrison twist, I guess.
PSST- That eye necklace I'm wearing is a part of my upcoming collaboration with Byboe! They're still in the works & not out yet, but I'll keep you guys posted!!
