Wool Statement Coat

I hope you had a great weekend!  Today I want to share with you a casual outfit and another new brunch spot in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle.  Lionhead is Jerry Traunfeld's newest restaurant, a modern take on Sichuan Chinese cuisine.  Traunfeld is known for his role as the former executive chef of The Herbfarm (another amazing Seattle area restaurant) during the timeframe 1990-2007.  At Lionhead, we feasted on crispy wok-fried eggs over escarole, lamb dumplings, and pork wontons in spicy sauce.  Scroll down for a photo of the dishes we ordered--and prepare to get hungry!  For my casual weekend brunch look, I started with one of my favorite statement pieces: a custom-made grey cashmere coat.  I had this coat made during one of my work trips to China a few years ago, and I love the soft cashmere and perfect fit!  The rest of my outfit consists of several winter closet staples: suede wedge knee-high boots, skinny jeans, a waffle turtleneck sweater, and a bucket bag.  This combo was ultra-comfy and warm on a crisp but dry winter day.

 Cashmere Coat: custom-made
Sweater: old, similar here (under $20!)
Denim: current version here
Boots c/o Shopbop, exact here
Bucket Bag: no longer available, save on this affordable gem or splurge on this Michael Kors beauty
 Brunch plates at Lionhead (clockwise starting at top left): leek and chinese sausage bao, hong you chao shou (pork wontons in chili oil), lamb jiaozi, and crispy wok-fried eggs.
