Winter is in full effect in Oklahoma City. It has been in the teens this week, so my wardrobe is in winter mode. In the winter I tend to gravitate toward neutrals, but I still like to add a pop of color.
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know I am all about adding a statement element to each outfit. This is something I’ve noticed that I almost always do. I love to pull out colors that are in patterns or add color to an otherwise neutral look. That’s just what I did with this outfit.
I ordered this fabulous black and white coat knowing it would be perfect for Christmas with a touch of red, and I knew I would wear it into spring/fall. It came right in time for Christmas and I’ve already worn it several times. My favorite way I styled it was adding a pop of red. Jake’s family gave me this gorgeous little red bag and I knew it would be the perfect with the coat (I am seriously so blessed that Jake’s family is so good to me!). After I got the bag, I came across these fun red booties while grocery shopping (#targetdoesitagain) and had to have them to wear with my new bag and coat. (I sized up ½ a size in the shoes, but recommend getting your regular size).
This coat is the perfect wardrobe staple piece. It is not lined, so I wouldn’t recommend it on days when it’s in the teens. It’s perfect for moderate winter days though (we have a lot of them in OKC). It will also go into fall/spring. It runs oversized, so for a more fitted look I sized down. Wearing all black underneath with a white top layer did create a little lint on the black, so I recommend using a lint roller inside of the coat before leaving the house.
Since the coat is neutral, there are endless ways to style it. I can also see it being styled with all black for a chic look or with pink for Valentine’s Day. I love this coat so much, so I am sure it will be on the blog again!
We are headed to Denver tomorrow. If you have any suggestions on what to do, please comment below!
I will be taking the week of the 7th-14th off to fully enjoy our Denver travels and to give myself a much needed break to get organized. If you read my 18 resolutions for 2018 post here, you saw that one of my goals is to plan ahead. So that’s what I will be doing! I will back on the week of January 15th with new content and a HUGE announcement that you will not want to miss! Make sure to subscribe, so you won’t miss this post.
