Coat: Pendleton, LOVE this one and this one. Jeans: Zara, Boots: Charlie 1 Horse, Turtleneck: CAbi, here's one. Purse: Coach, Sunglasses: Blinde, similar pair. Belt: old, love this one and this oneEarrings: old. Bracelets: My Great-Grandmother's, Grandmother's, Grandmother-in-law's, Stella & Dot.  Rings: Tiffany, custom at Diamonds Direct.

Have you noticed that Tartan Plaid is everywhere?  You probably know I'm more into going against the grain than following the trends, but thanks to my favorite winter coat, my Grandmother's Pendleton classic, I'll be wearing Tartan Plaid year after year for the rest of my life. I'm not kidding, however, when I tell you this is the most well-made coat I have ever owned.  I've had the coat probably 12 years, and it must be at least 30 years old.  My mother could probably speak better to that, but at any rate, it is the perfect coat... The lining is impeccable, the weight and length are just right, and the fabric is flawless.  Plaid perfection!  I was not able to find a Tartan Plaid Pendleton, but here's a solid Pendleton classic in red and one in black, and my top picks for current Tartan Plaid coats are here and here.  Thanks for reading!

Happy Top 'o the week to ya!

  6. This whole shoot is gorgeous, Whitley! And that Pendleton is divine. How cool that you have something so classic to remember your grandmother by. I wore a Pendleton blazer in my outfit post today and they are so beautifully made! ~Sarah
