My Many Colored Coats



That's it girls, I'm done! I started out the Fall needing two new coats- one light and one heavy. Instead of two, I now own four new coats. That's a bit obnoxious but I don't care. I plan on remaining cute AND warm all Fall and Winter.

First came this little cozy pea coat from my Mecca...Target. It's actually sweatshirt material but looks like a cute little pea coat. It's so cozy and comfy. Oh and it was under $30!



Second came my black barn jacket from Burberry. This was one of the two planned purchases. I love it. It matches everything. My old black barn jacket is ages old and just finally died a sad little coat death last year.

Third was this drool-worthy number. You know you love it! It's pink, it's green, it's toile, it's beautiful! I found this company via blogs over a year ago. Then found this coat on sale via blogs this Fall. After communicating with the company to figure out my size, I took a chance. It arrived this past weekend and it's truly beautiful! And still on sale if anyone else is looking for a fun little barn jacket.


Fourth, and the second planned purchase, was this cocoon-like winter coat. It's from Lands End but I bought it on Ebay for about 1/2 price and in a color not currently available from LE. It's so long- ends mid-calf. And warm- down filled- which I am allergic to but I don't think it will give me trouble wearing it as a coat in cold cold weather. It is incredibly light weight and soft and cozy. It feels like I took the duvet off my bed and made it into a coat. Oh sure, I look like a blue marshmallow. But when a winter storm blows through town, I promise I won't care. I actually wore it last night walking the dog. I didn't necessarily need it quite yet but I was excited to give it a test drive. It's awesome and a must for anyone living in New England or Canada. Seriously, I am like an obnoxious infomercial for this coat. LOVE IT!

Cute coats! I need some new coats this season, but I can't afford them! Oh well! Maybe next year, when I'm not in a wedding in six weeks.

Those Lands' End coats are great! A lot of my law school classmates had them and they looked so cozy all bundled up at the bus stop.

I think living up North, one can never have too many coats. I don't even know how many I have, but I have a black one just like your blue cocoon coat and I LOVE it. Dave makes fun of me when I wear it, but it's so warm. I got it at the JCrew outlet last year. What a total bummer that you're allergic to down. Love the burberry barn jacket and the toile is adorable!!
