It’s rare that I double down on shopping, but when my Vaute Couture Emily coat arrived in mail a couple of months ago, I tried it on, fell in love, and jumped on Vaute’s site so I could buy the other coat I’d been eying: The Traveler.
I was initially drawn to the color of this coat (dolphin), and the great tagua nut buttons. I also knew that this was the type of coat I’d wear a lot in Seattle (not too warm, not too bulky, but cozy enough to protect me from chilly weather).
The Traveler is made in NYC from recycled materials, and it’s vegan. No down or wool in this baby!

What better to go with my new coat than my Cri de Coeur booties! These are leather free, fair trade, and I adore the subtle sheen. The soft gray shade goes with everything too.
To offset my investment pieces, I wore a top from the Express sale rack and a skirt I found at a thrift shop.
You can almost make out the new tattoo I have on my calf in this last picture. I’ll save the big reveal until after the color is added.
