Earth Tones



Since November, when my husband started working from home, we began a weekly tradition of coffee dates together on Wednesday mornings - after we drop the kids off at school, we drive into the city to our favorite little cafe and spend time just the two of us.  Sometimes I find myself looking forward to the middle of the week even more than the weekend because that alone time is so rare & special.  I wore this outfit on our date last week - I still can't get enough of plaid & this mix of rich earth tones felt right for the chilly (but snow-free!) weather.





What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 sweater (similar), Old Navy coat (similar here or here), Target scarf (similar here or here), Jou Jou pants (via TJ Maxx; similar), c/o DMSX pumps (on sale here), gifted Zara bag (here or similar for less here), Bracelets: J. Crew (similar), Vintage & c/o INPINK (here), Dockers aviators (similar)

Your Wednesday coffee date is such a great idea! My husband works from home too, I should suggest this. That quiet time for just the two fo you is so special, isn't it?

And I'm loving your classic, earthy ensemble here. You look beautiful as always.

Neutral, earthy tones are my favorite! Are your pants leather, faux leather, or waxed denim? They're so cool! And TJ Maxx is the best for finds like that.

I love the earth tones on you! That is so fun that you get to have coffee dates. My husband teaches at a university so he has a flexible schedule and is home more than the average guy. It is nice!

Dates with your husband are special and don't have to be a big deal. My husband works many hours and isn't home alot, so when he has that one day off a week, we make a point to go have lunch and then get a coffee while our kids are at school and just catch up and have good conversation. It's my most favorite part of the week!

What a chic look - the different textures give great depth to the outfit.
Do you mind me asking what kind of camera and lens you use? Your pics are beautiful!

This might be one of my favourite outfits on you...I am a sucker for rich, warm neutrals! The olive green coat completes the look! I love the idea of coffee dates! Good for you for making the time.

Hi Lisa,

We use a Canon T3 Rebel with a 50mm prime lens - you should be able to find both on Amazon.com.

Thanks,

This look is so pretty! The earth tones just mesh so well together. That's nice that you and your hubby have date Wednesdays. Wednesdays are my husband's days off too so we always spend time together as a family on that day. :)

This is what I love about pinterest- some smart girlie pinned one of your looks, I loved it and decided to check out the blog it was pinned from, and now I have a new blog to add to my list of favorites! I have scrolled through just a few of your posts so far and I have liked every single one of them. Thanks for all of the inspiration!

I love these colors together and I love how you and the hubby have those Wednesday morning coffee dates, very sweet.

Love the bag - going for the similiar for less version, altho I can't find what material it's made of. Guessing it's not real leather considering the price. Trying to order by website is spinning @ the "confirming order" phase. ~sigh~
