This past weekend, between planning a Love Actually potluck (for the uninitiated, that's a potluck where you wear turtlenecks and watch Love Actually -- it's alarming how many turtlenecks are in that movie) and picking up Thanksgiving supplies, Chris and I did a little thrifting. And I bought yet another coat. Since moving to Pittsburgh my winter coat collection has grown to mammoth proportions, which -- let's be real here -- I think has more to do with the stellar quality of Pennsylvania thrift stores and less to do with moving to Pittsburgh. I'm a sucker for a giant lapel and menswear-style silhouette, what can I say? It doesn't hurt that the plaid is the prettiest, there are giant pockets, and this coat is more like a giant blanket. Win, win, and win.

I've been sort of living in variations of this outfit lately -- fluffy sweater, black jeans, big coat, and lots of rings. It's easy to throw on before rushing out to work in the morning (or rushing out to brunch on the weekends).

Are you excited for Thanksgiving? We're spending it at our place, cooking food and maybe heading out for an easy hike. Thanksgiving is a far more relaxed affair since moving far away from family, and I'm looking forward to having the holiday as an excuse to not work, and instead relax, nap, eat, and watch movies.

What I wore:
Coat: Vintage/Thrifted
Sweater & Jeans: H&M
Hat: Target
Boots c/o ShoeMint
Rings (left) c/o Dixi
'Wife' ring: Bueno Bueno
Heart ring: Catbird
