Cold Front


I’ve been stalking this coat at Old Navy because I just knew it would be on sale one of these days. (’tis the season for sales, right?) Sure enough this weekend I snagged it for 40% off. I’ve never been one to care much about coats other than for function but lately I’ve loved how so many blogger ladies integrate them into their outfits perfectly. I figured this one is a good basic to add to my closet with its clean lines  and nice color. I see a nice long future with you, new coat.

It really is cold here. Most of the time you could call me a wuss for saying it’s cold here in Texas, but it actually is below freezing this time. I am not the blogger who cried ‘cold!’ when it is 50 degrees out. And I’m not wearing socks. How’s that for being hardcore? I could almost be mistaken for a northerner, if it weren’t for … well everything else about me.

    okay, I never comment on blogs (even though i've been a reader of yours for at least three years), but can I say that your hair is ON POINT in these photos?! seriously, it has never looked better. I'm obsessed. I also think I might go buy this coat, right now.

    That coat is gorgeous! I have all the neutral colored coats (black, white, and tan) and I really want to get a colorful coat to add to the mix.

    I agree u are the most stylish person i ever met. Love this outfit. I love fashion too but i could easily get overwhelmed if i had too many clothes. I have given so many clothes to ebay its nit even funny. If u have tons of money to just play around with go for it.

    I love the colour of the coat and that you're able to wear it as a cape.

    Is the cranberry a nod to your upcoming American Thanksgiving? ; )
