Due to our normally warmish winters here in Socal I get pretty darn excited when it gets “cold.” For me that means sub 60’s – so I can layer up! I bought 2 new coats last year because Express was basically giving their stuff away around Thanksgiving and because I was going to Houston for Christmas.
While it ended up being warmer in TX than in Escondido, I’ve actually been able to wear them quite a bit since this winter has been pretty cold (for us) and quite wet! Yes, I know I probably sound like a crazy person lol. But this work from home girl jumps at the chance to wear her cute stuff!
My first instinct for styling this fabulous coat was to get all fancy-like; perhaps with a sexy, but classy maxi dress. But that’s too obvious., right? I decided to try my hand at a dressed down, cool girl look and I have to say I dig it! The red lip and the statement necklace made all the difference.
Unfortunately this coat sold out super fast (everyone loved it!), but since faux fur is so big right now you can both spare our furry friends and get a coat that looks uber luxe for way less money than real fur. This one is tres chic and only $70 right now. And this lovely number is only $109 full price! This fun pink one is under $30!
This statement necklace has been on my jewelry rack for a long time so I jumped at the chance to wear it, but I can also see this look being just as good with some major earrings. Perhaps these? And OMG how adorable are these? Don’t they just scream summertime?!
This is a great time to buy cold weather gear as most stores are clearing space for spring stuff. This FP pom pom beanie is super cute and on sale!
Are you as obsessed with faux fur as I am? How would you style this coat? Let me know in the comments! 🙂
Have a wonderful day my lovelies!
