Do As I Say… (See Jane Wear)

J Crew coat, Gap sweater, French Connection skirt (old), 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, Enzo Angiolini boots,  ScoopNYC neck warmer, CatbirdNYC rings (c/o and an awesome gift idea!)

Do as I say, not as I do is the old adage we’ve all heard.  I always tell my clients at work that when you live in a freezing city like Chicago, that the more coats, the merrier.  They’re essentially an outfit in itself and you spend more than enough time wearing them.  Well, from what you’ve seen, I only wear this coat.  That may be true, but do as I say, not as I do (I do wear other coats, though–I promise).


  1. This coat is absolutely gorgeous. I need a warmer one though for when winter really hits Austria. Like one with down feathers… 🙂

    Wonderful and Marvelous

  2. I have the exact opposite problem here in the South. I always want to buy cute coats in the winter but I just can't justify buying them! I have coats from high school (I'm 24) that look brand new because I only wear them once or twice a year. Maybe I'll take your advice and splurge on one anyways 🙂

  3. I can't blame you for putting that coat on repeat – a great coat (particularly J. Crew coats) are such an amazing wardrobe staple that should see the light of day again and again. I STILL wear the J. Crew coat I bought in 2003…I know it will stay in style forever, too! You look gorgeous!
