This particular coat is from Anthropologie buy you can find them anywhere these days. Madewell, J Crew and Rag & Bone all have a version. There is something nice about the neutral color-blocking and wool together in a simple shape. I think that its funny that first I coveted lace up saddle shoes and now a type of varsity jacket. Am I subconsciously trying to re-create an old high school film where I am the modern female stay at home mom version of the football star? ^_^
Our new place is sooo nice but a bit cold sometimes. We have a large glass slider in the living room and lately its been either cool with fresh air or cool with the doors closed. Ha, seriously though we have a heater and its electric as is everything else so that kinda sucks. We have been bundling up at night and wearing hats and scarves in the house. Except Emma who likes to strip down, but then she likes her accessories so she will have no shirt but wearing a wool hat for fashion. Kids are rarely cold since she are always moving. Adults get cold sitting still with their lappies and end up looking for cute warm things. Here is my short list:
This jacket which is so cute and inexpensive.
These Uggs look so lovely and luxurious.
Coyuchi wool blankets look nice.
Every sweater from J Crew mens please.
We of course drink lots of hot tea which is nice and warm and delicious. Trader Joe’s has a autumn herbal one that is great. We like loose peppermint or licorice and Good Earth herbal tea as well. I also just started drinking a decaf gen mai cha and its excellent.
Matt & Nat creates vegan bags and accessories with suede-like lining that is made with 100% recycled plastic bottles. I am in love with this Blockhead bag: dark grey handbag made from 100% recycled materials with 100% recycled light grey faux suede lining, tone on tone stitching and antique brass hardware.
I bought a new coat at the thrift store today. It is long and navy blue and fits me so well. The tag says it an original pea coat. All I know is that its very well made from oh so soft wool.

I finally purchased the wool Timbuk2 bag that I have wanted for a long time. As a bicyclist it really is the best bag for me because it doesn’t get in the way or slip off my shoulder. I have never been a purse fan either and have been searching for so long for a good bag to use. The wool was a special order and almost out of stock. I went for the extra small since I don’t usually carry my laptop and it has worked out to be the perfect size for me.
I carry just the essentials: the book I am reading, iPod, headphones, cell phone, sunglasses, prescription glasses, moleskine, pen, altoids, Kiehl’s salve, camera and money.
