Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style and city living. Hope you have a nice stay!

Pinspiration

Full disclosure: I'm not that great at Pinterest. It seems like a very non-blogger-like thing for a blogger to say, but it's the truth--I try to get into it, but I rarely ever get the urge to "pin" anything, despite the fact the site seems it would be right up my alley. So I was definitely surprised to experience my very first instance of "Pinspiration" earlier this year via this pin, which became my motivation to find the perfect camel-colored coat.

Thanks to this year's Salvation Army Coat Sale, I was able to hunt this one down pretty easily for just $20, and immediately started putting together the same look I had stumbled upon on Pinterest months ago. Luckily, I already owned all the other classic components.

To recreate the look, I wore the coat with a pair of thrifted jeans ($7, scored during a Texas thrifting trip) and a cream button-down (also $7, TJMaxx), then added a black sweater ($3, from a friend's closet clean-out sale) and my black Zara heels ($25, Rena Reborn). The whole ensemble, with my $6 street vendor sunnies, came out to just $68.
