The Coat Dress

I fell in love with this coat I saw at Zara during their boxing week sale. (FYI: Zara still has amazing sales going on right now.) I didn't have anything in my closet this bright, in fact I didn't have anything orange at all so I thought I'd spread my wings and purchase something in a color I wouldn't normally wear. I'm such a rebel.

Omg Marie! This is absolutely and completely my favourite look of yours. The colour is a dream on you and I love the silhouette. Also loving the fact that it's a practical option even though it's such a statement piece. Beautiful!

I have been pondering how I will incorporate some orange into my wardrobe. Now I know: I'll just snatch that coat from you! Just-kidding-but-I-wish-I-wasn't. You are an absolute doll by the way. Such a cute face. And hair. I want bangs again, and you make me want them even more. I hope to get them cut soon. Oh, and I want your shoes too.
