Swing coats have always been so classic to me. I personally think they're timeless and if I was 5'10, my Tiny Closet would have an entire collection of them! But I'm not.
And swing coats make me look juvenile because I am pint size... and also because they're just normally seen on little girls and dolls.
Still, when layered casually (and not worn with a Sunday school dress), a swing coat really does have a classic, confident femininity for any age.

My hair was completely
picked brushed out in this post. I brushed it all out in order to trim it myself but I didn't have time to re-wash it and activate the curls.
First time my hair has been brushed out like this before. It was so pillowy and shapeable, ha! I think I might do it more often.
With this classic, casual layering, a cute navy swing coat that's verging on dressy and "doll-like" becomes a natural counterpart and a more feminine version of the trench. I dig it.
Have a splendid weekend!
I'm excited to show you my new sewing projects come Monday!
