Beware Of All Enterprises That Require New Clothes

Although I might look slightly pulled together and polished today that is entirely an illusion. This poppy teal coat is hiding paint-stained old clothes! As that sentence might lead you to guess: I've been doing a bit of painting around the new house, so of course I dragged out some old clothes I don't really care about to work in (i.e. gym shorts and a tee). When it came time to venture out into society I didn't feel like putting together a whole outfit, instead I just threw on a coat long enough to hide my paint-stained shorts and threw on some sparkly shoes for fun.
I received these sparkly booties from Modcloth several months ago and I still love them to pieces. The glitter sheds a bit, but I can't tell where it is coming from since it's still appears evenly coated and perfect on the surface of the shoe. My only issue is the lack of padding; I have to add my own gel pads otherwise my feet truly hate me at the end of the day.

  2. I love how the coat complements the reds in your hair!

    Also, I'm wondering where the title of this post comes from? I've seen it before and can't quite put my finger on it...

  3. This makes me super excited to wear my new Tulle coats I received for my birthday! I really like the color of yours. And aren't their liners so great? Although their sizing seems to be a bit off because my tiny mother is a large... as am I.

  27. I always add insoles to my shoes, otherwise wearing such high heels as I tend to do will be the most brutal punishment.

    That teal coat is perfect, because 1.) it's my favourite colour, and 2.) it does make everything look amazingly put together and chic, and 3.) it constrasts against the fire of your hair so perfectly, like an autumn power color trend.

    You look lovely.

    As always.
