This Fall/Winter in Georgia has been some of the most finicky weather in recent years. One day it’s sunny and warm enough for sandals, while the next day you’re looking for your warmest coat. Well, when a recent cold snap hit, I was extremely excited to wear some new Winter staples. Some of you may know that I won a contest with Lafayette 148 earlier in the year. I was gifted a couple items of my choosing and a trip to NYC to attend one of their events highlighting extraordinary women. Unfortunately, COVID had other plans and the trip/event was indefinitely postponed. However, the brand was generous enough to gift me some items of my choosing, which I took full advantage of this Fall. Unfortunately, we just haven’t had cool enough weather for me to enjoy these gorgeous pieces until now. So what did I choose? A fox fur scarf and a cognac coat that is richest shade of caramel brown. They also sent me the most gorgeous accessories, which I hope to show off in a future post. In true Brown Paper Doll fashion, I mixed high and low, layering these luxe pieces with an affordable Banana Republic sweater dress that I found on the sale rack, my new Isabel Marant boots, and some trusted Céline sunnies. I loved mixing all of these neutral shades together, but each piece is definitely special enough to stand on its own.
Thank you again to Lafayette 148 for the beautiful pieces!
