The weather had been unseasonably warm in Chicago. Today it may reach 50 degrees, which makes it easier to get dressed and out the door with just a few layers. This Zara coat doesn’t even have buttons, but I don’t need them! Nor do I need to wear gloves, so I can wear a huge vintage ring.
Top: This top is actually a dress that I make into a tunic from time to time. All Saints Toria Dress, now $72.50
Jeans: Geography by Chicago Designer Michelle Alcott, no longer available. Try these J Brand Jeans Maria Mazzaro High-Rise Leggings, $220
Ring: Vintage Silver and Black Onyx. If a ring is too big for you, try it on a different finger. This Genuine Sterling Silver Oval Black Onyx Band Ring, $49 is similar and timeless.
Belt: Black leather and Silver Studded belt from Intermix, no longer available. This Streets Ahead Skinny Studded Belt in Black, $189 is something that I want now, and this
Linea Pelle Women’S Wide Waist Sliced Studded Belt in Black, $129 will work well over tops and sweaters.
Handbag: Helcat Black Leather Lace-Up Bag, no longer available. This Cole Haan Village Zip Hobo in Black, $298 has a similar shape.
