She styled it oh so perfectly by cinching the waist of her lovely mustard coat and finishing the look with a leopard print clutch.
Today was actually a bit too warm to be wearing a coat but I’ve learned not to be fooled by the sporadic sunshine in this state. The temperature was much cooler in the shade, and let’s not forget the night time chills after the sun sets. Oh the joy of transitioning!
