Well, it’s here. The weather is getting colder by the day. It got down to 29 degrees a couple nights ago! I finally embraced the chill and got around to unpacking and reorganizing my winter layers over the weekend. I own a couple nice coats, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to take a look when the end of October rolls around every year.
These are my favorites.
That black coat is one I would have definitely coveted in my younger days, especially during my Elegant Gothic Lolita phase. It seems a little less likely that I would actually wear this now, but I’m still really drawn to the style. Some things never change.
That scarf in particular is calling my name right now.
I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m definitely a wool coat girl. I have a ski jacket for practicality’s sake (and for sledding), but when it comes to choice, it’s always going to be wool.

ModCloth has finally introduced its first-ever namesake label, 100% inspired by you and me.
To create this line of versatile separates and dresses, the folks at ModCloth looked at shopper feedback to determine all the must-have details (so many pockets!), pored over popular trends on Style Gallery, and did three times the typical amount of fittings to ensure a fabulous, consistent fit. The pieces in this collection are available in sizes XS through 4X!
I’ve been a fan of ModCloth since college, and it’s been wonderful watching this brand grow. This new line has been a long time coming, and I am thankful that there are so many grown-up pieces and work wear in the mix. Lots of navy and cranberry, too, and some great neutrals! For people that actually like a little color, there’s plenty of it (and some more graphic prints, as well). I know I personally tend to lean toward the darker side of the spectrum!
You can shop the line here. My personal favorites from the collection are below.
A wrap dress with pockets? How more perfect can you be? As for that skirt, I have always had an affinity for upholstery and wallpaper-inspired florals. I don’t think I’m the only one. Also, more pockets. Yes.
The jersey tank is available in three colors. I love the crochet detailing. Always. Of all the pieces I’ve featured here, I am probably most likely to buy the two above! Income pending.
Two great basics. The navy wool skirt was actually the first piece that caught my eye in this collection. I think maybe my “professional museum attire” brain has replaced my “summer dark bohemian wear” brain now that it’s August. I don’t know. I do know that my New England heart likes wool. PS do not listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t wear black and navy together.
Check out the full ModCloth label line! Which pieces are your favorites?

Summer in New England is fleeting, so I am thankful that we are only now in the last days of June. The hottest days are still ahead of us, and the most fun. I am thankful, also, that my summer will stretch just a little longer with our trip to Hawaii in October. Here’s hoping I can make it through these next few months without chopping off all my hair in a sweaty tantrum. Perhaps growing out a pixie cut during the summer was not the best decision I’ve ever made. Bobby pins are my most necessary hot weather accessory. I need to start buying them by the gross.
Summer essentials are on sale up to 50% off at ModCloth through July 6. Here are some of my personal favorites.
And don’t let summer goth get you down. You can still be comfortable and on point if the shades of the season aren’t your cup of tea.
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Naomi, and this space is made of girldust. This blog is a picture of my comfortably scattered life on the coast of Maine. I'm trying to be a slightly better version of myself every day. I like old houses, reading, the ocean, ghost stories, and museums. You can learn a little bit more about me here.
