Ok ok, you caught me! I bought myself some Christmas presents. Oops! Tell me I’m not the only one who has done this? I promise I’ve been a really good girl this year 😉 Here’s the thing, the coat was on sale (I think it’s still on sale too) and it would have been a crime to pass up a good deal. And the scarf matched the coat perfectly so obviously I had to get it too. I really had no choice, people. I’ve already worn the coat (well, they call it a blazer but I think it’s more of a coat so that’s what I’m going to call it) a few time* and I’ve been trying it on with every item in my closet-yes, I have mini fashion shows in my closet whenever I get something new-and it’s made me realize how versatile a pastel coat is. Paired with winter pieces or darker colors, it’s perfect for winter, but pair it with light colors and it transitions easily into Spring. I think I’ve made a pretty good argument for why I had no choice but to buy the coat and scarf. I rest my case.
*see my other outfit with the pastel coat here
I got my fur scarf last year and hardly wore it because we had such a warm winter. There’s nothing worse than a 60-70 degree winter…except for maybe a winter full of blizzards. Half the country may have frozen last winter but I didn’t get to wear my fur scarf because it was too warm. I think we can all agree we suffered equally. (Haha! Jokes! I know you blizzard people had it worse.) Anyways, we’ve been getting lots of storms and rain this winter (or is it still technically Fall?) so I am taking full advantage by wearing my fur. And if you’re wondering where I wore this outfit to…I wore it to the DMV. I know, I know, I live a super glamorous life. lol.
P.S. Please keep those affected by the west coasts big storm last week in your thoughts and prayers. My preschool teacher’s house flooded twice in one week, causing a ton of damage to their home and personal belongings.
