These past few weeks I've been running around working on many exciting projects. This Talbots shearling coat has turned into one of my go to items. Comfortable, warm and so easy to wear. To create a long lean look, I chose to use one color as my base. Here a simple brown turtle neck worn with a pair of J.Crew brown cords. Riding boots by JP Todds. Ridiculously comfortable and necessary when I am on my feet all day. I added a little whimsy with red suede gloves, my grandfathers monocle on a gold chain and this fabulously practical animal print tote is also from Talbots.

Historically, shearling used to be very heavy and cumbersome to wear. Now they are light as a feather and still keep you warm. Sometimes we just need to feel stylish and cozy during these dreary winter months.
