    I love mint green! It's fresh and seasonless.

    I love how you paired the camel coat over the mint green. Timeless!

    Very nice!

    The skirt and sweater are adorable!

    I love that coat – I've been drooling over it for quite a while now!

    Love your new blog! The tone on tone mint green is fabulous and unexpected.

    I have this coat in purple, it's fast becoming my favorite. The camel version is lovely. An added bonus is that gold buttons are made in Waterbury, CT!

    A lot to like in this look, Vickers. I'm especially fond of the anchor buttons and the texture in the skirt.

    I regret not getting this coat. The mint and the camel make a lovely colour combination

    The mint color palette looks great with your dark hair. Question – are you wearing nude stockings? I've been toying with this idea, but have been unable to find the right brand and color. What are your thoughts?

      Thank you! I often wear nude stockings. In the winter it is far too cold to go bare-legged and sometimes the colored tights don't match well with the outfit I am wearing. I always make sure they are sheer and almost gossamer like in appearance. It is also very important that the stockings match your skin. In the past I have purchased nude stockings from J Crew, and Donna Karan has a great selection.

    I love the diferent shades of blue. Especially the necklace 🙂

  12. Melanie Ann on January 20, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    I'm with Brittany. Is it okay to go bare-legged in winter or do you wear nude stockings? Seems like nude stockings have fallen out of fashion lately.

    • Sarah Vickers on January 20, 2012 at 2:33 pm

      Hi Melanie,
      Please refer to my answer to Brittany. I feel like nude stockings are the type of thing that are never really in or out of fashion. There are definitely skin colored tights that should never be worn, i.e. tan tights on a person with pale skin. As long as they are sheer and match your skin tone they always look great. During the winter they are so much more practical for the girl who likes to dress up but doesn't want to freeze. Hope this answers your question.

    I love this look, Sarah! The shoes are perfection.

    Loving the nude stockings! Thank you.

    Regal- very Kate Middleton meets Jackie Kennedy. Love the details (necklace over turtleneck and anchor buttons)and the natural but groomed hair.

  17. This Southern Prep on January 22, 2012 at 7:51 am

    I love the coat, shoes, turtleneck, and especially the bag! Ebay or vintage find?

    • Sarah Vickers on January 25, 2012 at 6:36 pm

      Thank you! I'm unsure… Someone gave me the bag as a birthday present.It turned out being the gift I use the most.

    I've chosen you to be my daughter's style muse! Lovely photos–Prospect Park on the East Side? Beautiful!

    • Sarah Vickers on January 25, 2012 at 6:33 pm

      I'm guessing you are from RI? You are correct! It is on the East Side. I love the view of the city from there.

    • The Red Velvet Shoe on February 24, 2012 at 7:57 pm

      I lived in RI for many years and am now just over the border…but once a Rhody Girl always a Rhody Girl!

    Great post! I'm amazed at how you managed to pull off the cocktail dress with boots! Love everything about it. Carlmont Pharmacy OnlineI love how this blog shows that pearls aren't just for your grandma and you do not necessarily need to always be in high heels to look good…

  20. Gina on November 9, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    I love this outfit. There is something about mint that I find so crisp, refreshing and feminine. Gorgeous!
    As I read more of your blog, I realized you are from RI. I am too!!
