A Chicago Winter






(Coat & Faux Fur Scarf - H&M | Pants - Zara | Necklace & Sweater & Boots - Forever 21)
This coat has been in my closet for a few years now because it never got cold enough in California for me to take it out for a spin. The large buttons and pocket details on it make it look almost cartoon-like ( I call it my Madeline coat). With its forest green color, it breaks the tradition of black and gray coats without being overwhelmingly bold. My faux fur scarf also did a great job in keeping me warm even though with all the layers I was only able to survive outside for about 10 minutes at a time. If you couldn't tell I was super excited to dress up for the snow and take pictures in the city streets. Satisfaction has been reached!

Until next time my loves here is another pleasant tune that has been on replay on my playlist. Guess it sort of fits the mood of this post as well!
