Winter weather has finally hit San Francisco, which means it's time for all my warmest coats to see the light again. I found this beautiful navy 1960's coat at the last Vintage Fashion Expo (my favorite event of the year) and it's just the thing to keep me toasty. I met up with the lovely Isla for a "coffee & photos" date (just as silly and fun as it sounds) and she also happened to be wearing a navy coat. Too bad we didn't manage to get a photo together! The boots are a new addition to the wardrobe and were found in the men's section at Painted Bird because my huge feet wouldn't fit into any of the lady shoes. I can't tell you how long I've been searching for the perfect short, brown boots that I can clomp around the city in all day long. For $20 these were worth the wait!

Gimme your coat. Lol. Just kidding. Your outfit is so cute. It gives me hope that you don't have to sacrifice style in order to brave the Winter weather. :]
