The Coat



coat - Banana Republic (outlet), sweater - Jacob, pants- GAP (1969), shoes - Joe Fresh, ring - H & M

I had been searching for the perfect red coat for the longest time. When I walked into the Banana Republic outlet store at South Common yesterday, having had some spare time before meeting friends for brunch I saw this jacket in all it's red glory hanging on a rack and it must have had magnets in the pockets because I gravitated right to it as soon as I walked in the door. I swear there were tiny angels singing in my head, "Hallelujah" but with English accents. (?) Perfect for fall and warm winter days, this coat was exactly what I was looking for, with lots of buttons and pockets. Speaking of winter, I am currently dealing with frost on my car every morning and having to scrape it off. What's up with that??? Actually I shouldn't be surprised but I was hoping and praying we wouldn't get a winter this year. We usually get snow in October and since it's November and we haven't seen any white fluff yet, maybe it'll be skipped altogether? Ha! Wishful thinking. I hope you all had a good weekend!

P.S. Has anyone heard of the singer Lissie? I've been listening to her music all weekend. Why I hadn't heard of her before I don't know but now I'm obsessed!

Okay that coat is just stunning on you. Red is one of my favourite colours but I'm always jealous of how it looks on blondes, it's just the perfect pairing. You look beautiful as ever love!

I LOVE YOUR COAT! Eep! I have such a weakness for red coats, and I blame it all on "Love Actually"! Yours is perfection, and looks so good on you! Love it with the striped top!
