Jacket: Vintage Dress: Vintage Shoes: Steve Madden

I've been waiting forever to wear this coat again, and the wait has been too long. This is, hands down, my favorite coat, and some of you might remember it from last season. Well, the weather's finally right, and I feel so damn cozy. It takes a lot of willpower for me not to throw this on in the summer months, but I must express some sort discipline if I'm not going to be sweltering for hours on end! 

As for the outfit, I've always liked the combination of floral prints and animal prints. Which you can see in this outfit. The trick is to wear a floral that isn't too busy, and everything will work out beautifully.
Viva le Fall!

I love the location of the shots. Beautiful. And the wind worked so well with this outfit. A juxtaposition of wearing a coat in the desert. Great! I was looking at those shoes today....

Love this mix of prints, this is my idea of an ideal outfit. How did you find such a perfect coat? I've scoured and scoured ebay and the vintage shops and never found one so gorgeous!

i do love that coat of yours, and leopard and floral will probably become as popular as floral and stripes now, haha.

That is one fine leopard coat. It looks similar to the Topshop ones but is so much more awesome! Looks fantastic on you.
