Believe in Love







Identical plaid coat here, I removed the bow // J.Crew Hat // Tory Burch Bag // Franco Sarto Boots // Warby Parker Sunglasses // Old Navy Sweater, sold out, options

Do you ever walk in to a local boutique and just fall in love with it? Something about the atmosphere, charming displays and scented candles that welcome you to pull up a chair and stay a while, or at least try on some stuff.

When B and I were exploring Atlanta this past weekend, we discovered Dakota J's boutique where I fell madly in love with this plaid coat. I'm a sucker for girlie styles and the full skirt, removable fur collar and over sized fabric covered buttons made me want to twirl, skip and dance. Because it's a little chilly in the A right now, you will have to remind me to share that image with you later.

If you are ever in the Atlanta area, you will want to spend a day walking through these charming boutiques located right in heart of Virginia Highlands. They have unique and beautiful things that would make great Christmas gifts...hint, hint.

Thanks so much for reading!

  12. I would so buy this coat, too!!! Did you remove the black ties at the collar?

  13. Hi Joidie! I left the black ribbons attached and just tucked them inside the coat. You can see them in the last photo. I'm not big on bows, so I plan on taking them off permanently. The fur collar is removable, which is really nice, and it adds a luxe touch to a plaid coat. Thank you so much for stopping by! xoxo
