My northern California climate gets chilly but it seldom gets really cold so my coat collection has not been worn much. I began
donating them to a nearby battered women’s shelter so I’m now down to the bare essentials.

I spotted this unlined one a few weeks ago and couldn’t resist the color. I’ve never owned an unlined coat like this but my friend Eileen, says she has several hanging in her wardrobe. What turnip truck did I fall off that I never considered a coat like this?:)
Since it’s unlined, it’s a great option for milder climates like mine, shoulder seasons, and people who run hot, like me.
This unlined coat is loose and oversized which leaves room for layering bulkier things under it. It comes in 3 colors, sizes XXS-XXL 16W. Because it’s not overly structured, I was able to size it down to a small.
I’m wearing it over a pale blue cashmere sweater. I love these sweaters because the colors are yummy, they’re very soft and the price is right.
I spotted this alternative which I’m anxious to try. I’ve been reading wonderful things about the way Naddaam does business and when I learned their sweaters are sustainable plus they provide vet services for their goats in Mongolia, I knew I loved their company values.
We’re on a bit of a roll here with comfy shoes because my feet have been persnickety of late. This classic bootie has a low, stable block heel, and comes in 3 colors, sizes 5-13, AAAA-WW! The black is totally classic, this fudge color is more casual and the red is beautiful.
Toe shapes come and go in footwear, but this classic almond toe is always in style. It elongates the look of your leg slightly with no toe pinching. They have a removable cushioned insole with arch support which really helps with foot fatigue.
My jeans are an easy pull-on style with tons of stretch. I needed to go down one size so they do run large, which is a good thing with Thanksgiving coming up. They’re sustainably made with stretch denim. These jeans are made from sustainable cotton, spandex, and recycled polyester that’s made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. I am wearing a 6.
Now that I know unlined coats are a thing, they’ve been on my radar. I found this cape which has me intrigued because I adore the drama of capes. You need to know that being unlined is not a sign of poor quality, it’s simply a style feature. Here are a few others I’ve found-
I promised I would let me know when the handbag you see my carrying all the time was on sale. It’s currently 40% off as is most of their stock.
It’s a crossbody bag that seamlessly converts to a shoulder bag, a large clutch, and I’ve worn it around my waist to be totally hands-free. It has tons of pockets to keep me organized and is perfect for traveling.
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
