Bohemian coat casual

A quick reminder of the holiday giveaways I am co-hosting this month:

I mentioned last month that I scored a ’70s-style suede-and-fringe coat at a friend’s fashion swap. Soon after that, I spied a similarly bohemian-style coat on Adele, seen here, as she was making the publicity rounds for her new album. My eyes lit up, and I thought, “I could do something similar with my bohemian-style coat…”

Like Adele, who dressed simply in all black to keep the focus on her amazing coat, I also kept things simple. I dressed in skinny jeans, a dark purple long-sleeved tee, and tall cognac boots to play off the coat’s suede trim.

This coat is so out-there and retro-FABULOUS, isn’t it?! It really does take center stage. The fringe trim is lamb’s fur, and I love the play of textures with the knit and the embroidery.
