Vintage + Leather











Hey friends! 
Happy first day of December!
I am finally getting back in the swing of things after having a gloriously long {but seemingly short} break from school. Also, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
Today's post is a very special one because I am wearing my grandmother's vintage coat. She passed away several years back, and so I feel honored to be able to wear this coat and feature it on my blog because it is my all time favorite. It doesn't fit anyone else in the family but me, so I know it was meant to be mine. Here lately "faux fur" has been a widespread trend that just keeps getting more and more popular. Everywhere I turn around there is fur and I LOVE it. For this look, I paired my coat with all black clothing to make the focus be on the coat. The simpler the shirt and pants are, the more the coat pops! Another one of my favorite things about this look is I am wearing this fabulous 'Avery Fedora' hat from one of the best boutiques I have found, 5th&elm. It is so simple but can complete an outfit. I think that adding the faux leather leggings and my Isola heels make the outfit even classier. Last but not least, I added one of my most used clutches to help accessorize the outfit. What do you like to pair your faux fur with this season?
