Toggle Coat

It’s about that time of the year when it becomes far too cold to take photos of myself to put on the internet. . . without wearing a coat that is. They can be pricey and my coat closet is already filled to the brim, but I was excited to add a classic navy toggle coat to my collection. Not only is it perfectly preppy and goes with everything but it’s surprisingly warm. Thank goodness because we took these photos on Saturday in Greenwich on an afternoon that was not tropical to say the very least.

I know the hot tea looks like a prop but my hands were starting to turn purple so it was necessary. Ok it was kind of a prop though, the cup matched my pants, I basically had to!

We spent the day on The Ave, doing the last of our Christmas shopping and eating a late lunch at Ginger Man. Everyone we passed seemed to have a holiday sparkle in their step.

A shout out to the enthusiastic Lemon Stripes fan who said hello in the street. It made me feel very famous in front of my husband which is always fun. But seriously you made my day!

    I think you look amazing! I know how cold it can get taking pictures….and sometimes it’s SO hard to get cute shots when your hands are frozen and your face is purple. But you pull it off so well;) Love toggle coats, there’s something so classic about them!

    I have these pants in green and would have never thought to wear booties with them! Copying you next time I wear them.

    That coat is perfection. I’m a prep at heart and I could see myself wearing that everyday. Your turtleneck looks polished yet cozy. Great styling!
