Outerwear, Star Sweatshirt & More Skull Scarves

Remember the outerwear dilemna I posted about here? I couldn’t decide between this grey peacoat and this navy faux-shearling coat:

Old Navy Pea Coat and Old Navy Shearling Coat

As expected in situations like this – my choice turned out to be NEITHER and BOTH! I ended up getting the peacoat style but in navy (and XS rather than S). I prefer the shrunken fit – and have been wearing my new coat a lot! Can’t believe it costs less than $30!!!

My Winter Uniform: Hat: F21, Turtleneck & Coat: Old Navy, Jeans: Garage, Boots: Hunter

In other non-surprising news – I keep getting sucked in by Garage clothing. When I picked up my red skinnies from this post – I found 2 more items that I “needed”. First was this oversized & slouchy star sequin sweatshirt:

A perfect compromise for those days when you want to wear something soft and comforting but not completely slobby. I definitely plan on pairing this with my new red skinnies soon – the grey will tone down the brightness of the skinnies.

Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf and Garage Skull Scarves
My skull scarf collection: Coral scarf: Alexander McQueen, Black & White, Pink & Grey scarves: Garage

My other great find was this large print skull scarf in pink & grey. Don’t ask me why I keep accumulating skull scarves – I’m not sure myself. But skulls or not, with this color combination and softness – I’ll always love this scarf!

Garage is definitely my weakness – which store can’t you help buying from?  

By the way – the winner of my CZ earring giveaway is:

    love your peacoat! You can never go wrong with that shade! So I went and got the last scarf my local garage had after your previous post. I hadn't been to Garage since high school 😀 Now I'm gonna go see if they have a pink one too

      Too funny that you hadn't been there since High School LOL! I started going to Garage once its sister store Chado closed – I prefer Garage to Dynamite – not sure why but the clothes seem to be of better quality (I think all three stores I mentioned were owned by the same company before – not sure if they still are).

    I'm obsessed with skull scarves to, loving Zara's offerings. The Garage one is so pretty, not fair 🙁 You look so beautiful with the winter hat on, love the whole look! xx

      Thanks Parveen – I REALLY have to go into Zara next time I'm out shopping – I usually only have time for Garage and H&M – but I love all the gorgeous things you find at Zara – especially all the studded accessories!
