All The Gem Hues..

Hello lovelies. I bought this coat forever ago, and I have never worn it! I have never been able to find the "perfect" thing to pair it with, and I have toyed with the idea of getting rid of this coat many times. I always ended up keeping it, because I think that it is so cute. I finally found the right outfit to pair it with.."I think". I love the color scheme of this look and I felt that it was perfect for the fall. Do you guys see that gorgeous pond in the back behind the trees? This is a neighbors property, and I am going to have to do a picture by this pond someday, but I am always afraid to go all the way down to the house..lol it reminds me of Little Red Ridding Hood there..but it is a gorgeous property, and full of        great shots.

  5. yes heather, the coat definitely works with the outfit! i like the colors you used. the red is like red riding hood, even though you weren't doing that intentionally. ;) those shoes are fantastic. you find the best things.

  6. Heather! gosh! So glad you didn't part with that coat. I love this whole ensemble, and to think that the tights were the most costly thing on the list, hahahaha. I am going to hit up my Salvation Army and Goodwill, as soon as I locate them. Do you have a Deseret Industries in your area? I do, that are owned by the Mormon/LDS church here in Utah. They are pretty great. I got a used TV there last summer (for my brother) for $20 after his stopped making sound. I love to thrift!

  7. I must say that these are very bold colors you are wearing and I am definitely impressed with the prices of each item. Do not be afraid to pair the coat up with anything... its a flexible color and would blend with anything.
    I am following you from the GFC hop and would love for you to follow along.
