just call me the roller

I had originally worn this coat with a beanie a while ago, but had taken it off before going out. I’ve done this once or twice before, had an outfit on and then switched a piece out for something different/more appropriate (see outfit here). I think it can take time to be more courageous with clothing. Some people are fearless and ultimately they don’t care what others think (I SO admire this), but others are more tentative with fashion. I’d like to think this blog has made me a lot more fearless and to be more creative with my outfits and taste. A quote from a girlfriend of mine sums it up nicely: “just have a drink and wear it already!”

P.S. if you hadn’t already caught on, I LOVE to name my posts after songs. This one (“The Roller”) is by Beady Eye, a band put together by former Oasis member Liam Gallagher. Great song.

Have a wonderful day!

    Hi Jill! I’m Kat and full disclosure I work with Janice at Shoppalu but I just needed to say that I LOVE the way you made this vintage coat modern. You’ve made it so fresh looking and cool! Super effortlessly chic.

      Oh thank you so much Kat! I seriously love that coat and almost wish it wasn’t spring so I could still wear it!

      Hey Kat, thanks so much for your comment! I am seriously loving the coat; I almost wish I didn’t have to put it away for the summer!
