Casual Vendredi: Beachy

By Unefemme @DejaPseu

cotton knit hooded knit coat

I’m often asked about what to pack for a visit to Los Angeles, and I always advise that if you’re going to be near the coast to bring a lightweight jacket or cardigan, even in the middle of summer. Near the ocean, breezes often pick up in the afternoon/evening and it can turn chilly quickly. (And don’t get me started on the often frigid indoor temperatures due to the meat-locker-esque air conditioner settings that restaurants and businesses seem to favor here.)

Wearing: earrings | coat | necklace (similar) | tee (similar) | jeans | ring | bag | boots

This hooded cotton knit coat from Winser London (gifted) is perfect for our climate! Winser London sent me this coat to try as well as another top I’ll show you in a subsequent post. The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was the gorgeous quality of the fabric. It’s tightly woven but not stiff, and drapes beautifully. It’s soft but substantial, and feels as though it will hold up well over time. The coat is also available in solid navy and “Winser blue.” I’m wearing the Small here. The cut seems to be generous, and I probably could have even gone down another size in this particular piece. I really like that navy contrast detail that adds some lengthening visual interest. The navy and off-white combo has a very nautical, beachy vibe, hence the post title.

Winser London was started by Kim Winser, who has a background in fashion retail at Marks & Spencer, Pringle of Scotland and Aquascutum. She recognized (as many of us have) that there was a dearth of well-made, simple pieces in high quality fabrics that weren’t either too classic or too trendy. Launched in 2013, the line is now offered online in the USA. Winser London manufactures their clothing in small factories near the fabric mills, to save shipping costs and keep quality high and prices affordable. The collections are designed to be easy to coordinate, and to build upon season after season.

The leather tassel necklace was a birthday gift from Adrienne (The Rich Life In Wine Country). I love how navy really sets off the turquoise. Thanks again, Adrienne!

Paul Green metallic booties

These peep-toe booties from Paul Green continue to be one of my favorite pairs of shoes. They just add that something extra to an outfit that makes it work. And they are SO freakin’ comfortable!

Bon weekend!
