morton salt girl

alright, i will admit that the umbrella was a bit of a prop since it wasn’t actually raining during this shoot. but i’ll have you know that it did start pouring rain right when i stepped inside, so we’ll just call this careful planning. and if this outfit looks a bit familiar, it’s because it was inspired by one of my favorite street style looks last week on citizen couture, seen in this post.

i actually bought these vintage suede boots about a month ago after i was tipped off by lisa zain’s tumblr blog, vintage shoe love. the only thing is that i only got as far as knowing that i liked the style, and didn’t have a clue how to incorporate them into my wardrobe! but the street style gods smiled down on me and i found the perfect combination in my charcoal gray otk socks and inky blue trench coat.

i know i’m not wearing a little yellow dress, but i do feel a bit like the morton salt girl tripping around with my umbrella.

  4. Oh, so cute Erin! I love your coat in particular. And lol, somebody called me the Morton Salt girl on my blog just the other day when I included an umbrella in one of my outfit shots. Someday I think I'll actually obtain a yellow school-girl-esque dress and imitate her for real since she is actually pretty adorable.

  9. Those shoes are fab. Love the thick heel. But the H&M coat is my favorite part. That navy blue is the most gorgeous shade and I'm sure it was a steal!
