The fun part about today’s “Daily Covet” is that I actually am not coveting it anymore! I purchased this retro and totally fabulous H&M coat already – just in time for the Valentine’s Day brunch with my best gal pals. The Dolman sleeves and boxy shape are so 60’s but the collarless style also makes it look sort of asian-inspired. This cute, little number has opera-length sleeves and must-have pockets too. It’s absolutely perfect!
I styled it with boyfriend jeans, a j.crew factory Charley sweater in pale gray and pink suede pumps (old, very old kilty version.) I also wore my Anthropologie glass bubble necklace because the irridescent beads naturally catch the light to reflect pink and gray. Here’s the real thing, but the picture was a terrible “quick pic” I sent to a friend to tell her about my cool find. I included a better mock up of the outfit too.
Camel coats seem to be everywhere this fall, but the fact is: a fabulous camel coat has always been a fashionista’s cold-weather staple.
Sadly, this fashionista has never – not once – owned a camel coat!
So, I’m on the hunt for something lovely in one of the rare neutral browns I might look good in. This Max Mara Ragni coat is one that I absolutely love. I adore the funnel neck and the oversized fit. I’m also crazy for the not-quite-full-length sleeves and the car-coat length that won’t get in your way when you’re doing all the things we girls need to do when we’re not shopping!
It might be a bit pricey, but since I’d wear it for the rest of my life – maybe it’s worth the splurge?
Pea coats, shawl-collared dress coats, ski jackets, leather moto jackets and more.
But I have yet to add a toggle coat to my list.
And this Burberry coat is the perfect coat in that category. Black with the Burberry Brit check (brown), which means it’s a total staple. It’s long enough to wear with a short skirt or dress, but short enough to be a casual coat.
And since this SAHM rarely has to be anywhere dressed up – it’s an everyday dream coat for me!
Bloggy friends, I have my mojo back. My maternity clothes wearing days are over!
The fall fashion is starting to roll in to the stores, and I’m attending Fashion Week here in the Midwest next week.
But right now, I’m smitten for coats! This RED Valentino coat, in particular. I think I love this line even more than the original Valentino couture. I adore how feminine this coat is and how it fits and flares – perfect for covering up post-preggy saddle bags!
Sadly, I would have the opportunity to wear this coat approximately three times during a season. But seriously with these lines, would you even need to wear anything underneath it?
