Timeless Coats

Happy Tuesday!

So many of you loved this dark green coat.  It is a stunning color.

I’ve been loving this color so much. Months ago I painted one accent wall in my office a dark green color (you might have seen it on my Instagram).  It looks amazing against gold accents (like lamp, curtain rod and art frames).

While this is a gorgeous coat, it’s not a real winter coat. You’ll need layers underneath to keep warm. The day we took these pictures was so cold and windy and I only had the cashmere turtleneck underneath and I was coooold.  So we took these pictures very quickly hah.

The other day I wore this coat without the belt. It has one button, I didn’t use it, but I did have a thicker sweater underneath. Looks good with or without the belt.
  

Ann Taylor Coat (in xs) c/o  |   Abercrombie Jeans (I sized up) – on sale   |  Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater – non-cashmere option  |   Booties (super old) – similar styles here and here, also like these – 20% off w/code GETITDONE (ends 12/23)   |   Tory Burch bag  – similar style on sale

I’m somewhat of a sucker for a nice, classic coat.  Our winters last way too long, so that’s how I justify buying coats (or at least that’s what I tell myself haha).

But that’s one reason I don’t mind adding one or two coats each year to my closet.  They last for years and years and I don’t see it as wasted money at all.  Classic coats never go out of style, which means you’re getting your $$ worth (if you wear them of course)  vs buying something that’s on trend at the moment.

While I truly do not need more coats, I did cave and order this one. Still waiting for it (it’s supposed to arrive by the 20th but it hasn’t shipped yet).

On a different note, you might have seen this dress on my Instagram the other day.  I wore it again on Sunday but this time with red heels.  

These heels are old, from Ann Taylor, but these are two gorgeous red styles available right now – these and these.

And here is the link to my gray ottoman (it’s on sale at the moment).

As always, thank you for reading.
