Blush

It's the time of year when I like to let my outerwear take center stage. Sure, I'm willing to freeze for outfit photos sometimes, but what is the point of having two dozen coats (just guessing, I didn't go count) if I don't create my outfits around them, or just let them be the entire look. When I go out in the world that is what most people are going to see anyway. 


Typically I'll make an excuse for one or two new coats each winter, but this year I'm likely setting records. I had my heart set on a blush coat this fall when I spotted this one at TJMaxx. I've certainly noticed the shift in the color pallet of my wardrobe; I haven't worn my red coat in a few years and perhaps I should let it go.

  1. That pink coat is so cute on you! I really like the striped knit with it, I can see why you had to have this coat! :) I always think I should get more coats when winter rolls around as I rarely vary what I wear, but with it being so mild even in winter here, they wouldn't get worn much! I think coats are a much more practical and necessary buy for someone with your climate and this is a stunning one on you!

    Hope that you're having a good week :)

  2. Your coat is gorgeous! That is such a pretty shade of pink! I have a few statement coats and need to start wearing them more often! I tend to grab the same one over and over.

  4. It's such a pretty color coat, and I love it with that sweater! It's funny...I have maybe 5 coats and I really only wear my crazy leopard one, haha!

  5. When you live in a cold climate it's hard to resist a pretty coat like this!

  6. These photos remind me of the year that I got my heart set on a blush coat... and bought one, although it was several sizes too big, because I absolutely had to have one. I admit, we had some fun together, and when I see you in this pink coat, I'm reminded of those times, rather than wondering what I was thinking. Which, in the end, I think is a positive thing. Do we need all of these coats? Perhaps not. But are they part of what brings us joy? Absolutely. And we all need more joy than ever right now.
