Investing in Winter Coats

Good morning! This Monday is cold one and is in line with today’s look. This season I have been investing in Winter coats. I had never cared too much before and would use whatever I could find but I finally realized the importance of having options. So far I have black, camel, and now this gorgeous heather grey color.

This coat completely changed up my all black look and softened it. A coat can make even the simplest look more put together plus give a nice pop of color to an otherwise monochrome look. To continue with the theme of keeping warm I recently got this beanie and love it! I also picked up a burgundy one that I am sure you will see on the blog soon. This look could be business casual for work or it could be more casual. Just pair it with ripped jeans and some sneakers for more of an everyday look.

      That’s perfect. I need to find another black coat to wear on a more everyday basis.

    I LOVE that coat!! I currently own just a camel one and have been wanting to expand and get a black and maybe a pastel color as well. Your coat really ties the whole look together 🙂

    Love the coat! Looks great with heels but I could also see it with a sportier look like sneakers.

    I was just thinking about my winter coat this weekend. Maybe I should invest a little more into them, since I’m lacking in that department. Your outfit is on point! Love how you soften up an otherwise black look.
    Thank you for linking up with Weekend Wear, hope to see you again on Friday!!
