{DIY::Time for an Update}

16 Dec

I love my classic black pea-coat, but I’ve had it for years & in my opinion…the buttons had to go!  {Time for an update}  I was flipping through the Jcrew catalog and saw the coats all had shinny gold buttons on them…inspired!  Off to Jo-anns I went…

{Thrifted blouse (similar), Jcrew minnie pants, Jcrew flats, Urban Earrings, Jcrew bracelet, BR Pea-coat (similar), LV Speedy}

I encourage you to go out and try this simple update! It’s easy change, inexpensive & totally revamps the look of your coat.


This weekend I’m headed to Oregon with Patrick.  We will spend a week with his family in the gorgeous mountains & then back to the east coast for a week with my family.  I can’t wait to see everyone & have some serious family time!

Stay tuned next week for 7 fabulous guest posts.  I’ve invited a few of my favorite ladies to share here at Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication.  They each have great ideas & advice for you guys.  I hope you enjoy! XO

Have a very merry Christmas & I will be back with you for New Years!
