Julie posted this on her blog, and I about keeled over with love. This outfit is the best thing I've ever seen this year. (I all of a sudden wonder if I'm prone to exaggeration?) But it really is! (Maybe I'm just excitable.) It's a work of art. I will sell most anything for that coat (not Bama) - where can I find it?

P.S. I put the holiday gift guide roundups as a page at the top - i'll keep adding to it when i come across them!

*Update* So I found the sweatshirt on Totokaelo...it's only like, $605. SAD FACE.

Please, GET excited, we need more of that in the world.

LOVE all the knits wrapped with the boots. The boots are a fab color. I have vintage ones exactly like that.
It is all about the layering. LOVE IT...and u. x

Bethany Dirksen said...

I just stumbled across your blog for the first time and thought I would say hello! I looked through a few of your posts and love your style. I am temporarily living in Europe (belgium, the netherlands, and italy) for the year and love that you show a wonderful European feel in your blog.

I'm a blogger as well, about the world of art, but my history is in interior design and fashion. I love to hear what people are saying! Hope we get to see more of each other in the future.

Ah, that coat, but I adore her boots most of all. It's snowy here and they look warm and comfy. Ideal for the season and I love the colour, too;-)

Claudz said...

Love it! makes me wish is was winter in South Africa

Coco Coterie said...

I really like this outfit, as well. I love boots, but think they do not look good on me. This photograph inspires me to get a pair. I love total casual, but elegant look to this. Hope you have a great day ~ xox Alexandra

Sandy a la Mode said...

style'n said...

yes that coat is amazing and so are the boots. I will check out her blog too :) She has great style.

ellie said...

I do love the boots. I'm not sure I exactly understand your enthusiasm of the other part. You know, exactly how you are suppose to wear the jacket. Is the scarf combined with it? I do love sleeves in a scarf.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

in LOVE with that outfit!!! its gorgeous and so comfy looking. only $605 - why not go for it? ;) hehe.

Alleen said...

Love this coat...please keep us informed if you locate it! xoxo

Becca said...

$605 is going to keep you selling stuff for a good long time!

But I really like it too. Something about the colour and texture and everything. So nice!

Doesn't SOMEONE just make a knock-off?

the southern hostess said...

It's so gorgeous and cozy. Love!

M said...

PS. I probably won't be putting up a tree too because we got an offer on the house and will be packing over Christmas:-(. Sadly, i won't have much of a Christmas this year, but at least the hubby is home for this Christmas:-). Who knows, i might put up a table top tree or something...XX

jessica whitley said...

Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

$605?? A travesty! But it is a cool outfit :)

Chuzai Living said...

I love her style, too. I don't now if I could wear that coat well to make it look stylish like she does. Her hair and everything about her whole look is all well coordinated. Love her boots!!!

Styles 'n Cream said...

What a gorgeous look. I actually thought that the coat was Rick Owens, which doesn't make it less affordable. Love the boots too.

I just found your blog and I love your style. You have a new follower. Have a great day!

Kimmi said...

Haha, often I can't wait, too. ; )

christa said...

Yikes! No way! You can recreate that some other way. Grey sweater and scarf? They have those sweaters with the long fronts... whatever they are called.

Mrs. Parker said...

The jacket is all fine & dandy -- but let's talk about those boots! *Swoon!*

Danielle Oakey Interiors said...

i wouldn't mind owing those boots and sweatshirt, there MUST be a less expensive alternative!

the clothing menu said...

that is an awesome sweater/coat. so cozy/fun/casual/chic! i agree though that the price is a little unfortunate.

Dreaming of Palm Trees said...

Those boots are awesome. I've been on a desperate hunt for something like them! Love your blog! :)

the chirpy bird said...

Listen, I'm crazy for those boots lemme tell you... It's not right when you see an outfit you love and it's completely out of your price range... it's plain cruel! Gotta love that jacket too.. sigh :)
xox tash
p.s. will totally take you to HB's premiere next time

Nikki said...

What the?! $605!!! I need to go check out this chick and see what she does for a living.

There must be a knock off somewhere. could you make one with a XXL mens sweatshirt?? ;)

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Oh Krystal you're so funny. I'm sorry it's so $$$. Perhaps someone will find one almost just like it for a real world price.

fhen said...

i really like this look!
hope you can find the alternative of the sweatshirt!

xoxo

Valerie said...

Suddenly I feel like I NEED a pair of boots in that exact color. They're fabulous!
