Sugar Dusted

Remember when I told you about my hunt for the perfect cozy sweater coat?

I didn't find it at The Anthropologie, Holt Renfrew, or even ShopBop.

I found it, of all places, at Abercrombie, after I was inspired by The Anthology's own A&F number.

On clearance too. And it goes perfectly with my tall easy-whip peppermint mocha.

Wearing:
Abercrombie and Fitch multi-colour sweater coat
TNA top, Aritzia
Furla brown suede bag, circa mid 90's
Cream crochet beret, hand-knitted gift from extended family in Northern China
Flat Equestrian Boots, from Hong Kong

Love the sweater coat. The colours are beautiful and striking against the wintery white. And yum....peppermint mocha. I also like their apple cider topped with whipped cream and caramel salt.

Wow I never would have guessed A&F of all places but it looks amazing! Love that sweater coat on you and the whole entire outfit itself is fabulous. Esp love the cream knit hat (we have matching hats!) and your gorgeous brown suede Furla bag (love!) also have to comment on the title of the post, love that too. it makes me crave sugar cookies though, SIGH.

Oooh, congrats on finding the perfect sweater coat! It's gorgeous! Love your entire outfit... such a great festive look without being cheesy ;-) I'm heading to Hong Kong next week so if you have any favorite haunts you want to share with me, please let me know. It's odd, because despite growing up there, I'm probably missing all the new cool shops and restaurants that pop up over the year...

Gorgeous sweater coat! It's cozy and festive at the same time. Like you and Nicole, I would've never guessed A&F as the source behind it.

That is the perfect sweater coat! I too am in love with your knit hat :) My, you got quite a bit of snow! I didn't get any where I live, just rain.

hey liv! just trying to play catch up with my comments.

yeah I lived in my leggings and flats the entire road trip so it was tough to be creative!

I honestly didn't buy anything at the outlets, didn't find anything I liked. However, I did do some Christmas shopping for my best friend haha so that was an exception along with a few things I may have picked up for myself. I'm technically done my ban (started Nov. 1st) but I'm going to blog 25 more outfits and not shop for awhile aside from Christmas gifts because I do need to save money.

We went around and tried random places for food. There was this White Spot/diner-like restaurant called "Almost Home" in Salem that had a really good burger haha I don't know if I was craving a burger so badly that it tasted good or if it tasted good on its own merit, but it was GOOD.
