Two hundred fifty thousand miles on a clear night in June

Layer, layer, layer... and then throw a big cozy jacket over the whole thing.  This is the way I've been dressing lately, hence the lack of outfit posts!

I've been searching for the perfect shearling jacket for almost a year, and I really thought that I would end up with an aviator style. I was eying this jacket for quite some time, but eventually passed on it due to poor quality. I was immediately drawn to this jacket when I saw it in store.. too bad they no longer carried my size! I quickly whipped out my phone and started scouring Google and eBay. After finding an online option, I went on and on about whether I should go for the sale price on the jacket in a colour that I could settle for (black) vs. paying full price for the jacket in the colour that I absolutely wanted (the tan). PN, in an attempt to get me to shut up about the pros and cons, made my mind up for me by gifting it to me.. and also because he's a total sweetheart.

In other news, here are the winners of my December giveaway (chosen via

Please send me an email at with your full name, shipping address, and which prize package (#1 or #2) you'd prefer. I know that I left the items up as a mystery, but it'll make the holidays a bit more exciting! The first person to email me will get their preference.

Thanks so much for participating! I may do another giveaway before the end of the month, so keep a lookout.

I LOVE IT. I don't think I can pull off shearling...I was eying some boots earlier this month but decided against them. sigh.

And congrats to the winners!

Lovely coat. It's a little bit retro and it looks comfortable, so you'll get a ton of wear out of it. :)

Love the layering - I honestly am a big fan of the cold weather though I never used to be. Blame it on the fashion.
You look amazing, love that lipstick!
