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.

  1. 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.

  2. Classy and chic! That coat is definitely a fabulous addition to your closet, I looooove ON, their sales make the world go round … at least mine! And that bag? pure love!

  3. I don't usually comment but I love your blog – THIS OUTFIT is GORGEOUS!!!! I mean… they all are, but I really love this one. I'm shopping for a nice nubbly sweater just like yours to wear it exactly like that. Bam.

  4. O I almost bought this coat but in grey. Now i like it in this cranberryish color! Great look overall


  5. I love the color and structure of that coat! I missed that amazing ON sale but there's sure to be more soon!

  6. With a lovely coat like that, I'd take any cold front! So darn cute! Looks like I've got to find an Old Navy up here in Minne-snow-ta! 😉

  7. 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.

  8. This is so classy, and cozy as well! The color of your coat is beautiful and perfect for winter, and I love the sweater.

  9. Oh wow… that coat.. I might have to check it out!

  10. Well, that color was pretty much made for you to wear. Looks fabulous on you, girl! Also I know, I just came home to Texas from school in California… and I am FREEZING. Ice Age, Texas edition for realz yo.

  11. I tried on this coat in my normal size and it was huge–did you size down? and by how much?

  12. Girl, you look damn good in that outfit! Wear raspberry more often– it looks amazing on you!

  13. You are brave, socks (and every other layer I own!) are a must for me this time of year…but I am a wimpy Southern girl.

  14. can you put your arms through the holes? As a tall girl, it is helpful to see the fit on shoulders!

  15. This is beautiful! I can't believe the coat is from Old Navy! Your necklace is so pretty too. Where did you get it?

  16. 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? ; )

    Great pewter shoes.


  17. I'm sure you get this a lot, but I just wanted to tell you that you are gorgeous.
    I love your outfits and reading your blog is always a highlight of my day 🙂
