Colorful Coat for Fall

Colorful Coat for FallOver the past few years, I’ve built quite the coat collection thanks to our Wisconsin winters. When winter lasts for five months, if not longer, you need some choices that will make you happy, even on the coldest and dreariest days. I have the Stadium-Cloth Cocoon Coat from J.Crew in light gray, but this City Coat from J.Crew Factory is almost identical, and for a great price. I’ve been wanting to try a more colorful coat for fall so I snatched the coat up when we visited J.Crew Mercantile this weekend, and I got it down to almost $100 thanks to a coupon from my mom. If you’re looking for a statement coat for fall and winter, the City Coat also comes in a gorgeous red and the Cocoon Coat comes in 11 different colors.

I took an unexpected blogging break last week because work got a little crazy and so did life outside of work. While I had every intention of getting some other outfits up, I want to make sure I’m not rushing to get something posted and still spending time with my friends and family and not sitting behind my computer all night. Realistically, I’m going to try to get three posts up a week.

Bill and I actually have a short work week this week because we’re heading to Knoxville this weekend for our nephew’s baptism. We’re also making a quick stop in Nashville because my family will be there for the Packers game. We’ve been to both cities a few times but are always looking for more recommendations so please feel free to share!

  • Have wagon will travel ❤️ Ainsley has been loving every minute of our trip to visit her cousins.
  • So incredibly excited to share Ainsley’s nursery on @theeverymom today with a fun Q&A! I share more about my career journey, some of my mom hacks and my favorite pieces in her room. It means so much to be featured on one of my favorite sites. I included the link in my bio. 📷 by @quyenhom
  • I think I took 100 pictures and gave her 100 kisses tonight. I was sad I wasn’t the first one to give her a top knot so I made up for it by documenting it at every angle.
  • I got to daycare pickup today and they had given Ainsley her first top knot 😭 We got home, found her favorite animals and I swapped my heels for some sneakers because we needed to take a lap in the wagon before family night. And yes, this is the Target dress from the day I got trapped in the store because of a torrential downpour outside. I was wearing a white linen top and desperately needed something to cover up my now see-through shirt and was already running late for a meeting. I also had to purchase an umbrella and rain boots. I wore this dress over my jeans and top and am now challenging myself to see how many ways I can style it. Next up? Layering it with a turtleneck. #liketkit #LTKbaby #LTKfamily #LTKworkwear #itsbanana
  • Spending my mom’s birthday at one of our favorite places. Her friend owns the farm, and it’s always been special for our family to come here. This was after Ainsley would only nap in my arms this morning (which never happens) so I like to think it was my mom’s way of sending the sweetest hug today.
