Varsity Love

December 16, 2013 • GenevaStyle

last weekend geneva was really, really cold. i totally loved it though, as it is finally beginning to feel like the holidays are coming. we went to the old town to eat roasted chestnuts and churros on the streets, shop for some christmas presents and take in the holiday decorations and lights everywhere.

it was the perfect opportunity to wear my baseball coat, as my husband has come to call it. i can’t tell you how long i had been looking for a varsity-like jacket before i stumbled upon this version (but i pinned this picture and this picture a loooong time ago). zalando kindly allowed me to pick out a christmas present to myself from their shop, and when i discovered this jacket by selected femme it was love at first sight. it’s warm like a coat but easy like a sweater, and – most importantly – it’s a lot more feminine and tailored than most varsity jackets i’ve seen.

i wore it with my favorite hat of the moment – the classic beanie from i love mr mittens with the leopard pom pom. it’s cotton, not wool – which doesn’t make it any less warm, but does make it a lot less prickly. #majorlove

also wearing a theory sweater // these incredibly soft and comfortable luxe sateen super skinny jeans kindly gifted to me by j.brand // this madewell tee (you can barely see) // chanel boots // and the geometrics bracelet i designed for diamanti per tutti
