Over 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!
