Wilfred - The Only Coat - Aritzia

I know it's the last day in August and people aren't thinking of winter coats, but you should. I have been on the hunt for a classic navy coat for a while now, but I didn't feel like shelling out an insane amount of money. Thanks to Aritzia, I didn't have to. My sister recently picked up some really cute clothes there for work, and when she sent me the link to the Wilfred I jumped on it and I'm SO glad I did. It's super classic and a slightly oversized fit--I took my usual size (M) and it has plenty of room for sweaters. And, it's a wool/cashmere blend that is supposed to keep you warm in temps down to 14° F, so I think I'll be set come later in the fall/winter. Sizes are selling out fast (some sizes/colors are backordered until March 2024), so if you too need a classic coat this season, grab it.

Well, not sure how another month has speedily passed us by, but here we are: the last (partial) week of August. I am personally very much looking forward to the cozy times to come and easing into all things early fall. Here is what I was up to the past couple weeks:

my sister, brother, and sister-in-law came up for the Gregory Alan Isakov concert at Thompson's Point. We had a delish dinner at Fore Street first, and the concert did not disappoint. 

a fun work outing at a Portland Seadogs game (my first time, and I will definitely go again).

hit up scarborough beach a couple of times and got rather tan.

enjoyed the garden at my parents' house.

went to the cape for a mini bachelorette/ bridal weekend for my cousin who is getting married in september (which is crazy to think about).

ordered a new fancy dress for said wedding. 

had radishes and brown butter at one of my favorite local spots, friends and family.

the bug swallowed and regurgitated a peach pit, which resulted in a trip to the emergency vet and a major freak out from yours truly, but she is fine. 

Here's to getting to getting into the post-summer grind.
