Man, Old Navy might not make the best button up shirts but they sure know how to make a wool coat. This coat is such a regular in my closet, the classic camel color is so versatile and non-trendy and the fit is fantastic. (Plus, I only paid like $15 for it. How can you beat that?) Old Navy can have some dodgy quality on some of their items, like the aforementioned button up shirts, but they really do make great jeans and wool coats.
I'm really shaking my head over the fact that I haven't wore this dress on the blog yet. It's one of those dresses that looked really drab and shapeless and boring on the hanger at the thrift store but I love it on. I try to keep my eyes out for nice quality stuff at the second hand shops so even when I don't recognize a brand, if the fabric and cut is nice, I'll take it. I looked up this brand online and apparently it's a JCP line. I'm kind of shocked because I didn't know that JCP carried silk garments But then, Old Navy carried silk and cashmere back in the day, so anything's possible.
It warmed up a bit today so I rebelled and wore some sandal wedges like a crazy person, it feels like I've been wearing boots non stop for the past few months. In my defense, there were people running around in just tee shirts today, so sandals were completely appropriated from a Fairbanks standpoint. Shesh, it hits twenty below here and everyone starts dressing like it's beach party time. I remember the first time I visited Fairbanks in the wintertime, it was twenty five below zero which being from Seward and Wasilla was flipping cold. I was so shocked to see people running around in their tee shirts and shorts, being all happy about the "heat wave." I thought they were insane.
I guess I should mention that right after I took that last picture I went to move the camera and fell flat on my face, right in front of the dude walking by. Yeah, I got a good look out of that.
