Green Coat

I love my green coat. I got it a few summers ago for $5 at the Goodwill. Some of the buttons fell off the first few wears and I finally got around to fixing it. It is surprisingly warm. It's from the 60s and it was made and sold in my hometown which I think is really interesting. I've been wearing it the past week but today I finally manned up and took pictures outside. It is brighter in person.
I also wear this cardigan too much but it is one of my favorite colors.

I have midterms this week which I'm not thrilled about and most of my friends are heading back to college this week and next week. But I do get out earlier which is fun.
