- ONE WOMAN ON A MISSION TO DISCOVER & EXPERIENCE ALL THINGS LOS ANGELES
Filed In: FASHION
Can you guys believe the actual WEATHER we’re having right now? My wifi actually went out today! Poor sensitive Los Angeles wires and connections; so sweet and fragile. I feel like every time I put on a real coat in LA, I always get questionable looks or the awkward “you look really warm…” comments, but the past few weeks I’ve clearly the most comfortable and intelligent person out there in the 40 – 50 degree cold with my heavy duty coat on! “Who’s the moron now!”
I’ve had this coat in particular in my closet for an entire year now and haven’t been able to wear it (without feeling like said moron) in over a year. I am so happy Los Angeles is finally having a moment of chill so I can bust out all of my favorite “East Coast coats”. I am all about furry/fuzzy coats right now, or “fashion blankets” as I prefer to call them, because they really are the most wonderful way to dress up an outfit all the while remain totally comfy cozy.
If there is one Fall/Winter season staple I haven’t seen fall out of fashion within the past 5+ years, it’s the beloved “camel coat”. And I swear I’ve been searching for the perfect damn camel coat for about 5 years now. It has to be the right color, the right length, has to have the right lapel, the right shape, the right amount of buttons – whew! I have never felt more like Goldie Locks over something so ridiculous in my whole life! So alas, instead of finding the absolute perfect camel colored coat – which to my very disappointing discovery usually costs around $1k+ – I’ve started collecting more affordable “almost perfect camel colored coats” instead.
I have had so many girlfriends run into the same issue with finding the right camel coat, so I did some digging and found 6 really great camel colored coats that are perfect for this season, and all happen to be under $200. Well, except for one because it’s just too good to leave out! Between light weight / heavy weight / light colored / darker colored / shorter / longer options, I am sure we can find you your “almost perfect camel coat” too!
Just because the holidays have come and gone doesn’t mean we have to put the sequins, beads, and sparkles away? Au contraire! Everyday is a good day for sparkles – in moderation of course. I got this Free People dress for New Years festivities, but to my surprise it has been on frequent rotation lately for meetings/dinners/etc.
I’m always looking for dresses/skirts to wear with my over the knee boots, and this dress is the perfect compliment for these boots. If you’ve got a pair of over the knee boots you understand the struggle; not everything goes with them! I typically have to start with the boots and work around the rest of the outfit, and usually I settle on a mini dress like this one.
