Daily Covet: Camel Coat

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?

Daily Covet: Ralph Lauren Wool Cashmere Poncho

Let’s face it, ponchos have come a long way since their vintage sisters made their way onto the style scene.

This Ralph Lauren Wool – keyword Cashmere – poncho looks so cozy and warm and perfect for fall.

I’d pair it with knee boots and jeans or or a wool mini skirt. I’d totally wear it to the pumpkin patch with my kiddos or to run errands in high style. It’s such an easy piece, I could throw it on to get the mail or pick the kids up from school. And it comes in gray and olive – the first I have loved always and the second is my new favorite neutral.

Like most things I love, it’d go almost anywhere!

Daily Covet: Burberry Duffle Coat

I’ve had all kinds of coats.

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!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Tayla

Since we’re talking outerwear, let me just add this awesome Kate Spade “Tayla” topper to my list of needs wants.

The adorable pyramid-style buttons and patch pockets make this coat detail rich.  And it’s a versatile coat, which comes in two of the most rockin’ colors:  Loden and Gold.

So one in each color then?  Yes, please.

Daily Covet: RED Valentino Twill Coat

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?

Daily Covet: Banana Republic Cotton Coat

Coats?!

I know, I know.  I just need a new lighter weight coat for the fall and spring seasons coming up.  I didn’t buy anything this year for obvious reasons.

But, what better time to find a new coat than when they are on wicked sales?

I love this bright cotton coat from Banana Republic.  It’s simple, has lady-like lines and will go with virtually everything.

It almost makes me excited for fall… almost.

Daily Covet: Thakoon Pleated Back Wool Coat

This great winter coat from Thakoon is at GILT.com this afternoon.

It is the best time of the year for great deals on winter coats.  And this beautiful $2,000 coat is now marked down more than 50%.  Yes, I’ve done the math.

But I still love it.  Gray is one of my absolute favorite non-colors, and how can you even pass up the gorgeous pleating in the back.  It soooo reminds me of Mary Poppins!

While it’s probably not in the cards for this girl on a budget, it is most definitely on my drool-worthy list of covets!

Daily Covet: Eyelet Trench

Everyone knows the trench is a time-honored staple.

Trenches are a timeless wardrobe piece that every fashionista needs in her (and his!) outerwear collection.

The traditional trench is khaki.  Then came the pink or navy trenches with green and white polka dot linings.  Or the yellow trench most commonly worn with Hunter Wellies.

But now an Eyelet Trench from Elevenses?!  Anthropologie has the cutest blue and white eyelet trench for Spring.  This trench is so feminine, but features military-inspired epaulets and a waist-cinching belt.

Better yet — It’s adorable over bright yellow capri pants as seen here.

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Lea Coat

I love this Kate Spade Lea coat.

I love the retro shape.  I love the mod-ish print.  I  love that it’s easy in cotton with a touch of silk-blend pizzazz.  I adore the round neckline and mini collar.  And I’m smitten with how it’s shown here over something very short with black opague tights.

For a girl who adores toppers, this coat is definitely tops!
