Black and Camel

Isabel Marant Étoile tweed coat
Vince cashmere sweater (similar - on sale!)
A.P.C. wool scarf (similar)
Céline "Phantom Cabas" tote

Hope you had a fun Halloween weekend! Husband and I intended to get dressed up and go out with friends, but we ate a huge dinner of Korean BBQ and ended up falling asleep before 10pm. Wilin' out.

Anyway, I've been wanting a tote bag for a long time and finally decided on this dreamy Céline bicolor one! It's my favorite color combo with camel lambskin center and black suede side panels. I chose the horizontal Phantom Cabas over the vertical Cabas for a couple of reasons. The Phantom Cabas leather is thicker and holds its shape better, whereas the Cabas leather is intended to be flimsy and buttery. The Phantom Cabas handle is also longer, which can be worn over the shoulder and not just the forearm, because who other than Popeye has strong enough forearms.

  7. That coat! I need it in my life! You must be the trendiest teacher at school by a few miles. Although Isabel Marant is a little out of my price range at the moment, I've been in the market for something like it for a while and may splurge. How warm is the coat? How could would it have to be for you to switch out to something warmer? Have a great week, thanks for the outfit inspo!

    1. Hello! The coat is warm enough with layering in 40-50 F degree weather. It's thick around the body and arms, but it's shorter so your legs can get cold. The neckline also requires a scarf.
