As you would well know, I am all about blatantly oversized outerwear. The most insubstantial of outfits can suddenly become so appropriate when enveloped in an uncompromisingly large outer layer. The woolier, the better. I picked up the piece above on eBay upon typing in the term "boyfriend coat" - my go-to phrase to describe anything comfortingly cocoon-like. I also adore outerwear of a decidedly textured nature, as I find the salt-and-pepper boucle effect perfect for throwing over any basic outfit for a casually put-together finish.

Although I can't give a direct link to my coat above due to its secondhand origins, here are a few options you might find appealing should you wish to join me on the boucle bandwagon:

  7. I personally think this ensemble is very well-composed. The "heavy-ness" of the coat is balanced with the bare legs (awesome, btw). And the combo with the sneaks created a very quirky tomboy-meets-chic look.

    Cool.
