Pea coats, shawl-collared dress coats, ski jackets, leather moto jackets and more.
But I have yet to add a toggle coat to my list.
And this Burberry coat is the perfect coat in that category. Black with the Burberry Brit check (brown), which means it’s a total staple. It’s long enough to wear with a short skirt or dress, but short enough to be a casual coat.
And since this SAHM rarely has to be anywhere dressed up – it’s an everyday dream coat for me!
Bloggy friends, I have my mojo back. My maternity clothes wearing days are over!
The fall fashion is starting to roll in to the stores, and I’m attending Fashion Week here in the Midwest next week.
But right now, I’m smitten for coats! This RED Valentino coat, in particular. I think I love this line even more than the original Valentino couture. I adore how feminine this coat is and how it fits and flares – perfect for covering up post-preggy saddle bags!
Sadly, I would have the opportunity to wear this coat approximately three times during a season. But seriously with these lines, would you even need to wear anything underneath it?
Yep, we’re back to dresses… dresses that I can’t wear now, but still dresses.
I am in deep love with this Peter Som dress. At first glance, it looks sort of “matronly.” It reminded me of cleaning out my Great Aunt’s closet, which was full of stylish-for-the-times knit/polyester blend dresses. But close up, this dress is cotton, slightly sheer and features a “rainbow” of blue shades that are some of my faves.
Still not convinced? Check it out here on Rachel McAdams with a creamy, demure coat and cap-toe pumps!
Everyone knows the trench is a time-honored staple.
Trenches are a timeless wardrobe piece that every fashionista needs in her (and his!) outerwear collection.
The traditional trench is khaki. Then came the pink or navy trenches with green and white polka dot linings. Or the yellow trench most commonly worn with Hunter Wellies.
But now an Eyelet Trench from Elevenses?! Anthropologie has the cutest blue and white eyelet trench for Spring. This trench is so feminine, but features military-inspired epaulets and a waist-cinching belt.
Better yet — It’s adorable over bright yellow capri pants as seen here.
While I’m not particularly against people wearing real fur, it’s not really my thing… but I do love a good faux fur jacket for it’s luxurious feel and chic style.
This fur jacket happens to be the real thing, but if you are vehemently against wearing real fur or would just prefer the low maintenance (and lower cost) of the faux persuasion, I’ve included a couple of cute alternatives.
Happy holidays bloggy friends — here’s to a well-dressed season!
