I wore this over the weekend and I loved it so much and wanted to make sure the look made it on the blog. Honestly, I really wish I was wearing and sharing skirt-and-sandal outfits with you guys, but truth be told, it is still rainy and chilly in the lovely PNW right now.
I told you guys how much I reach for this sweater (oatmeal is nice too), literally, every third day. I am not even joking, I wore it on Saturday, Sunday and again yesterday. It keeps me cozy without feeling encumbered on these cool spring days. It’s like the warmth of wool without the weight. I ordered this Anorak with some Everlane credits a few weeks ago, and sat on the fence for about a week deciding whether I liked it or not. I really like their tenches but unfortunately coats without hoods are just impractical in Oregon. I could have both hooded and non-hooded spring coats in my closet, but I am keeping toward my lean closet principles, and I really only need one coat.
Anyway, part of the reason I was on the fence about this coat is that the fabric is very thin and I didn’t think it would be warm enough. But when a jacket hangs to your knees, it turns out it’s warm no matter what the fabric is! Lightweight fabric also means the coat is super packable (like in my tote). The generous cut looks pretty unique and chic, and it’s a nice change-up from wearing my olive green jacket all the time. My booties are by Frye (another item I wear near-daily) and my beautiful necklace is by my friend Lauren of Loop Jewelry.
