Winter white outfit with gold topcoat - une femme d'un certain âge

Gold and winter white outfit for an evening out

Yes, I’m a little off my posting schedule this week. We’ve had several get-togethers (both planned and impromptu) with family and friends who are in from out-of-town. It’s been so nice to be able to celebrate together in person this year! So I cut myself a little slack with my blog schedule to be able to fully enjoy these visits.

I wore a version of this look out for a casual dinner earlier this week. Our weather’s turned quite chilly, so I’ve restyled the look with a warmer sweater and shoes.

The coat was purchased two years ago; here’s this year’s version. It’s boiled wool, which is usually warm enough for our Southern California winters, especially with a sweater underneath. I’m wearing 6 Petite. (Even though I’ve been infatuated with teddy coats lately, I currently can’t justify buying another winter coat. This one will have to scratch that itch.)

This sweater is SO soft, and I love that it has a bit of color and pattern, (but not so much that it screams for attention). It’s quite generously cut; I’m wearing the X-Small.

I’ve had these off-white jeans for a while. (Also worn HERE.) I like them better now that I’ve cut the hems and left them unfinished. The boots were gifted by Paul Green Shoes. (Worn previously HERE.) This particular style is no longer available on their website, but you can find it here and here.

    Love the whole look and the unexpected colour combination. The jacket looks divine on you. Was thrilled to read of your infatuation with teddy coats – made me feel better and more confident about about my own excessive affection for them.

      Thanks, Kath! Aren’t teddy coats fun, though?

    Susan, love the white boots! And love your style! I do not have instagram but am thinking of signing up just to follow you. I am awaiting a pair of the white Combat boots from Thursdays Boots. I have off-white jeans to wear with them. I am wondering – do you wear yours with other color pants/jeans? I need help pairing with darker color pants.
    thank you

      Thanks, Janet! Yes, I’ve worn them with tan corduroys, medium-wash jeans, and the grey plaid pants shown here:
