Chiffon Blouse: Forever 21
Tweed Skirt: Platos ($5!)
Tights: Target
Watch: Macys
Oryany Gwen Bag: Tjmaxx

It was chilly this morning so I decided to wear this coat I got a few weeks back. I was browsing the racks at a local thrift store and I usually check the coat racks during my searching. I was feeling all the sleeves to find a soft coat and stopped at this thicker wool coat. I checked the tag and saw that it was a gorgeous J.Crew wool my size! It was in impeccable condition and the back had a split tail which I adored. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better--it did! The coat was only $9.99. Score! 
I decided to wear this bright skirt with a fuchsia top to play off the neon colors in the tweed skirt. I liked the unexpected fun colors under the black coat; I added black tights with simple pumps for a classier look.

Thank you for reading!
