(Dawn Levy Coat, Splendid Turtleneck, Saint Laurent Bag, Rag & Bone Jeans, Valentino Boots)

Dawn Levy sent me this beautiful wool wrap coat with leather trim.  It was one of my picks from dozens of gorgeous outerwear pieces that Dawn Levy makes.  The wrap coat is a classic shape and looks good belted or open.  If you are interested in this soft black wrap coat you can purchase it here.  It also comes in a taupe color that I think would look really great on a brunette.  The coat is ultra soft and thanks to the shape and style I can wear a cable knit sweater underneath it pretty easily. 

I styled the coat in a classic way for its first outing by wearing it with a long sleeve black turtleneck from Spendid.  I wore this same turtleneck way back in 2009 when I first started blogging.  It is a basic and essential piece to have in your closet.  The Splendid turtleneck I am wearing is made of supima cotton and modal, making it very comfortable and soft.  It is fitted so I love to tuck it into high waisted jeans.  You might remember these Rag & Bone jeans from this photo shoot where I wore them with Saint Laurent cowboy boots and a crop top.  The great thing about high waisted jeans is they work with crop tops and with regular tops like the turtleneck I am wearing.  I don't know if you can say the same for low rise jeans.  

On my feet are another pair of Valentino fringe boots.  This pair is definitely made for walking and the leather is super soft.  The pebbled leather and the way the fringe is draped make these booties different from many other pairs you see out there.  You might remember my other pair of high heeled Valentino fringe boots that I wore a couple times recently with jeans and with a skirt.  Both pairs of boots have the same kind of leather on them and there is no stiffness to the leather whatsoever.  I thought the boots added an everyday casual wear aspect to the ensemble.  I had a lot of stuff to do the day I wore this outfit.  Otherwise I might have chosen a pair of high heeled boots or pumps.  I am not sure.  We also had to photograph this look in the studio because by the time I got home it was too late to shoot outside.

A little gold and black bag finished off the look.  I had to take a break from my Chanel boy bags and let some of the other handbags I own steal the spotlight.  This Saint Laurent handbag is one of my favorites thanks to the small size and the chain strap detailing.  It has held up pretty well.  I snagged it last year and you can see me wearing it with a striped bodycon dress and Jimmy Choo lace boots here.  As you can see, this bag will work for a dressed up night look or a classic daytime look.  That is the beauty of this tiny wallet chain bag.
