Camel+black+navy

18 November 2010











Well I suppose I have just been over all lucky when it
comes to good finds. I purchased this camel coat
at a secondhand store and it was love at first sight! I
wish the lighting was better in these photos, but I paired it with
a black velvet dress and navy tights. I cannot wait to try
several other combinations in my wardrobe! I paired this
outfit with a red lip, because I knew the neutral color of
the jacket would make my lips pop.

It has been cold, overcast and raining of and on. I just
love this kind of weather! Not only does it remind me of my
beloved London, I feel like it is a great time to meditate and
have a clear mind. Just stare out the rainy window and think.
Anyways, I am rambling! I hope everyone is having a lovely
week.

Great Pictures!
I always love the background of your pictures!
The red lipgloss - LOVE it!! I wish I could pull that off but it makes me look older I've been told.

Love the color of the camel coat.. I love coats like this!

Yajaira said...

Oh and the floral purse! Pretty!
I'm always looking for a nice floral bag and never can find one, that is simple neutral..

Diane said...

This outfit is so great. I love the simple and classic styling of it...the dark colors go so well with that bright (can a neutral be bright? Oh well, I'm saying it is) shade of camel. What a great find!
