Casual Outerwear

Green tweedy, double-breasted coat, Moda International. Orange tweedy hat, Betmar.

I’m wearing another boring weekend outfit of jeans and a sweater, so I thought I’d photograph my casual winter coat and kickin’ new hat instead.

I bought this coat from the Victoria’s Secret catalog last winter. Before that, I had been running around in an oversized, turquoise, ratty fleece jacket from REI (circa 1994). My green coat was definitely a step up. I was a little uneasy about ordering the jacket in such a bold shade, but it turned out to be a good move. I get compliments on it almost every time I wear it. VS still offers the jacket, but not in this color. Maybe next year?

I bought the bucket hat today. It’s been challenging to find a casual hat that can hold its own next to this crazy green tweed. I think crazy orange tweed is just the ticket. I’ve also got a crazy chenille beret, but it isn’t as warm and requires exact positioning on the head.

I found it! I am going to make myself a man coat just like this, now if only I can find the fabric! Nice blog by the way, I like the cut of your jib!

Adorable green tweed coat and I love both hats, especially the second one, the beret. ;-)
