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!

  • It turns out Ainsley does not like to walk on the grass barefoot but does love the splash pad. Also, I think she aged another year this weekend 😭
  • Filling my feed with things that make my heart happy these days - these shelves are high on the list. In college and just after, I tried way too hard to follow trends. I’ve now fully embraced more sentimental pieces and love to mix and match old and new. Thankful that getting older has made me appreciate the little things even more.
  • Anyone else feel like they’ve lived two days all before 9 a.m.? We’ve watched two Toy Stories and have Secret Life of Pets 2 ready to watch, I put my chai in the microwave but never heated it up, we did a treasure hunt and had a very messy incident that involved Ainsley letting me know there was 💩 on the family room floor. My computer is in front of me in bed because breathing is getting harder at 35 weeks and this is all that’s comfortable right now. I’m sure my work calls are going to go very well this morning. Sending you all a virtual cheers and choosing to laugh off the crazy and be grateful for this healthy (but tired) family of mine 😘☕️ #honestmotherhood
  • Baby brother’s room progress is brightening up this rainy morning. I can’t wait to tell him I hung up the pictures myself 😉 And while the bookshelf is a work in progress, I’ve loved adding some of Uncle Kevy’s old cars and trains in his room. #liketkit #LTKhome #LTKbaby #projectnursery #sharetheeverymom #fifthandroseathome
  • It’s 43° in Wisconsin so we went on Spring Break in our kitchen today. #liketkit #GapLove
