The Camel Coat

Ever since I laid eyes on this BR camel coat online, possibly as early as spring, I was obsessed with it. But when I finally got in my hands, I was on the fence. In fact, it went into the “return pile” three times before I decided I wanted to keep it. It is truly an boyfriend coat–boxy and oversized (which of course, I knew it was), but even more so that the similar grey version.  Even in my regular petite size, I felt like it was still a bit too overwhelming on my tiny frame.

Despite putting the coat in the return pile three time, I still wasn’t ready to give up on it. On the fourth try, I decided that I loved it. And it goes beautifully with my regular fall palette (i.e., grey, black, navy, and burgundy). Plus, despite how thin and light it is, it is surprisingly warmer than expected (also true for the gray sister version).

Oh and these grey jeans? They are everything. Paige has long been my favorite denim brand and these did not disappoint. They grey is the perfect shade–not too light and not too dark, and so soft without looking like I’m wearing leggings.  I sometimes come across a pair of Paige Verdugo that don’t quite fit my thin calves quite the way I wanted to, but these are perfect. They do require a bit of hemming, but I consider that to be a very minor alteration. I now have my eyes on the destructed version.
