COAT SEASON

November 14, 2018

COAT SZN, FTW

It’s officially coat season and if you ask Josh, he would tell you that I’m the coat queen. I do have way too many coats and Josh always insists I start purging some,  but what if I need a hot pink semi-warm coat to get me through the fall and winter season!? Here in Boston, there really is such a short window of opportunity to wear them since they’re not exactly the warmest. This houndstooth coat is one of my favorites, but it’s more of a “fashion” coat, almost like a blazer. I feel like I could maybe wear this coat as an actual coat during the last week of September and maybe two to three weeks in October lol. Right now, we’re experiencing super cold mornings and chilly evenings, so as much as I would love to look like a fashionista sporting my stylish coats I like to be warm more. You will see me in my puffer coat with both buttons buttoned at the top, looking like a caterpillar in a cocoon. It’s not fashion, but it is toasty. My other favorite fall/winter must-have are these Aerie turtlenecks. I’ve always been a huge fan of the turtleneck, and this season Aerie has introduced these ribbed form-fitting turtleneck tops in (almost) every color you can imagine. I have them in this popping Holiday Red color, a kelly green, white and a rich wine/burgundy color. I LOVE them. They are the perfect layering piece and, who are we kidding, a turtleneck says sophistication, just ask Ron Burgundy. As for shoes, I’m all about comfort. Surprise, surprise, right? I hate to rip off designer styles and brands, but the one shoe style I’ve always loved are the Stella McCartney platform wingtip lace-up loafers. Like any millennial with no money, I went to Amazon and found these perfect imitations. These are so comfortable and they look awesome, IMO. So until the snow is falling, I’ll be rocking these and hopefully some cuter coats…if Mother Nature will allow.

READY, SET, COAT SEASON!

Details: J.Jill grey ‘Chelsea’ coat, here | French Connection light oatmeal high-neck sweater via Marshall’s, here  |

The time has come for us to fully load our closets with warm knits, wool socks and of course, coats. I have a bit of a problem with all clothes, but coats are my biggest weakness. I can never seem to have enough and one of my latest finds is this dark grey button-front coat ‘Chelsea Coat’ from J.Jill. I really like that it’s an easy coat to layer and work with. What I mean by that is, it’s a coat that has a lot of flexibility, it’s much less stiff, which makes it perfect for crisp fall days like today. I layered it over a super comfy and ultr-soft sweater, which is pretty thick and I still felt free and could move my arms easily. I guess if I could describe this coat in one word it would be: comfort. I feel 100% comfortable and even though it feels lightweight, it keeps you warm. Not to mention, I love a good collar and this one screams sophistication, am I right?!

This will not be the only new coat in my closet this season, but it will absolutely be one of my favorites.

Tell me: what will be your go-to coat this fall!?
