Mild Mix

Chicago Style

The goods:
• t-shirt from Zara

• faux fur vest from Von Maur
• gray coat from J.Crew
• denim from Forever21
• gray boots from Nine West

I waited patiently until this fantastic gray coat went on sale at J.Crew last year. Unfortunately, cute wool coats just don't stand up to harsh Chicago winters. But this mild weather has allowed me to keep my big puffy coat in the closet and experiment a little more with my lighter outerwear. I added this fur vest for an extra layer of insulation, bonus points for giving the illusion of a fur trimmed collar. So until it's nice enough to wear this lightweight coat again, this winterized version does the trick!


  1. Just found your blog through Refinery 29 - love it! Really like your style, but am most jealous of your hair. You totally have a new follower. Lots of love from London xxx
