ESSENTIAL COATS FOR WINTER
Hi Everyone! Hope you have had a great week! I have been on the road to Alabama this week for a funeral, and to spend some time with friends. I am a big believer in being present with my friends, so sometimes the blog posts don’t get done. Since it has finally gotten cold in the South, I wanted to show some of my favorite coat styles. The good news, is that most coats are on sale now!
The first coat I really like, is this streamlined one. I think it looks great over pants, skirts, and dresses. This is a great coat for work, or church. I love how it is worn in the picture above, over jeans and with sneakers for an unexpected look. Coat number two, is a robe style. This one in a beautiful pale pink or this one in icy blue (Pantone’s two colors of the year) would be great over pants or a skirt. Number three coat, is a fur or faux fur coat. I am crazy for this faux fur by a brand called Shrimps. They have the coolest colors and styles! If you are going to do a faux, why not do it in a fun color? This cheetah print shearling coat is to die for!!! It might be my ultimate dream coat! The fourth style is the Cape. I really like this simple black one. I think this looks so good over any kind of pant. My last pick is a Moto or Biker jacket. This style is one that I think you can wear over anything. It looks great with jeans, but is also fun to match with a cocktail dress. Many of the jackets linked, and below are on sale. I just bought this one yesterday in blue, and on sale!!!
Have a great weekend!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Coats are OK, but jeans and shoes ?? In our country, we have -20C.

I just heard about your blog from “that’s not my age”. Congratulations on your mention in whowhatwear as one of the top bloggers over 50. I love you already! This morning I’ve purchased two coats and a pair of furry slides at your recommendation. This could be a very expensive relationship! Love your style! It is great to find someone who knows how to dress stylishly and does so agelessly!! As a new grandma myself ( so proud to be a grandma but don’t want to look like one!), I struggle to find stylish role models that are not in their 20s! I look forward to seeing your ideas in 2016. And today, on a very snowy Sunday, I plan to enjoy your past posts!

Hi Paula! It’s nice to meet you! Thank you for your well wishes! I was stunned about the who what wear mention.I am so glad that you liked the coat suggestions, and am loving that you got the fur slides! You will love them! Which coats did you get? Congratulations on being a grand mom! There is nothing quite like it, and I agree, we don’t have to look the part! Do you have a boy or girl? I have two, a boy(almost 3) and girl (1 year).
Thank you so much for commenting, and for reading the blog! Let me know if there is something you would like me to cover! xx

So nice of you to take the time to respond! I purchased the same light blue Vince coat that I believe you also bought. Then I went crazy and ordered the Belle Fare Lamb shearling in Taupe. I’m have auburn hair so I’m a sucker for anything brown or green. It’s such a cool coat !
My granddaughter is almost 2! When I’m not buying for myself, I’m looking for her! I have two sons so this is my first girl! Loving it!!!!
