It's interesting how our tastes change as we get older. For instance, I've never been much of a cold weather girl, until recently. I dream in colorful sunsets and tropical breezes. My godfather lives in Maui, and I've been in love with Hawaii ever since I can remember. I went there after graduating high school, my fiance and I took our first major vacation together there a few years ago, and we are going back next year on our honeymoon. Clearly, I love the beach. But while warm weather may be good for the soul (and your health), I think dressing for colder climates is much more appealing. It's something about layers and feeling all bundled up. I've been coming home from work and lighting my candles, and there's just this happy feeling that I get. To emmulate that same feeling when I'm not at home, I'm going to wear my boots and trench coat every chance I get!

Trench - LOFT (sold out online, but check stores) (This one is so pretty)
Leggings - Hue
Boots - BP Nordstrom, similar here and here. Love this dream option by Tory Burch!
Bag - J. Crew
Earrings (unseen) - Anthro (similar)

I am inputing the entries I received on my Regina Pierallini giveaway into Random.org, then emailing the two winners tonight, so check your inbox :)

  1. I iz in love with your coat,s so chic! And your boots are the perfect shade of brown for the ensemble. And girl you love the cold coz u don't know what cold is, heheh! Move to Ottawa for a year when it goes down to -40deg C in the winter and you may start worshiping summer again :D

    That being said I still prefer winter to summer. When it's hot, no matter how lightly I dress I'm still uncomfortable. But in the cold I bundle up and I'm fine

    1. Hahaha, you have me cracking up! I know, guilty as charged! I really don't know what true cold feels like. I've only been to the snow a few times! So my version of cold is definitely way off :)

  2. That trench is so beautiful!! Stripes are lovely on you girlie.

  3. I have this same purse and absolutely love! Also, we share the same love for hawaii. My husband and I took our honeymoon there in July and, once again, I fell in love with it.


  4. love the jacket paired with the hot pink clutch for a pop of color! xo


  5. I agree - layers and coats make me feel more complete. :)


  6. That bag is so. Cute.

  7. Oooo very cute Noelle! I totally agree with yah there! It was funny..I was in Starbuck's yesterday morning and this girl standing in front of me (who I could tell was clearly into fashion) started chatting with me about fall/winter clothing and we both said how much more sophisticated it is than summer/spring fashion. I have always thought a true fashionista's colors shine through in the fall/winter. There is an art to layering and looking fresh and classy without looking like a big ball of clothing. Although us west coasters have it easier than the east coasters do when heading out in the climate. All comes together very well!

  8. That coat is AMAZING! LOVE IT! The pink looks great with it!


  9. I just love that jacket everytime I see it! I just might need to buy it :)
