English Country

This outfit makes me think of the English countryside. Even though I've never been, this is so something I would wear if I was to go. I wore this for a lazy sunday afternoon spent walking around, going to second hand stores and having lunch at a cafe.

I just purchased this coat this a little while ago. It was an amazing find because I was really so close to purchasing the babydoll coat from Old Navy. It totally fulfills all my princess coat necessities.I've been looking for a babydoll coat for a while now and found this one at an american aparel store by way of california select(how random?). Apparently the brooklyn flagship store carries California Select Vintage. Its Rothschild and very girly. You can't tell from the photos but on the pocket flaps and the hood there is a layer of velvet. Also on the hood there is a trim following the outline of the hood. It is really adorable. I'll take a photo of it the next time I do an outfit post.

Top: Cream Sweater(Target, bought in an XL to be oversized)
T-shirt: L/S white scoop T(H&M)
Skirt: Floral High Waist Skirt(Self Made)
Tights: Black Opaque(H&M)
Shoes: Vintage Riding Boots(Scruples, Ebay)
Bag: Vintage Black Saddle Bag(thrifted)
Coat: Vintage Black Babydoll Princess Coat(Rothschild, California Select, American Aparel)
Sunglasses: Large Tortoise Wayfarers(Spring St.)
