Pants:  J.Crew Full-length Minnie in bi-stretch wool {really liking these pants!  I also bought them in burgundy during J.Crew’s last sale blowout 🙂 I already have a pair of the Minnie’s in twill, but they are not my favorite (because of the fabric).  The bi-stretch wool version is far better!}

Is anyone else sick of winter?  I don’t normally complain about the seasons, but this winter is just dragging on and on…
I know I’ve said it before, but wearing color really helps my break out of my winter funk…even if only for a short while.  For today’s look, I took a chance on pairing dark olive pants {thanks Wikipedia for help classifying this color!} with my vintage teal coat.  And I have to say, I am quite happy with the result!
