Pink Coat.


I do not need any more coats.  I just don’t.  My coat closet is packed to the brim and I promised myself I would not add any new ones to the mix.  But then I saw this one at Zara.  I resisted it for a solid month before taking the plunge.  My theory is that if you keep thinking about something for months after you first see it, then you need it.  You just do.  {Okay, you definitely don’t need it, but you will probably end up wearing it a lot.}

Hope you guys are having a great week!  I’m a little beat from work + gym + fashion week… but the good news is that we’re halfway there!  PS – I got a lot of questions on insta about these jeans – they are the best!  They are new from James – I love the moto detailing

Shop the Post:  Nordstrom Beanie {I’m obsessed with this one because of the nice slouchy shape!} // Zara Coat // Otte Cashmere Sweater {old but this similar – and more affordable, too!} // gifted James Jeans // Old Navy Boots // Gucci Purse // NARS Lip Pencil in Red Square

And because there are so many good ones right now… More pink coats!

    Your pink coat is so pretty and looks really good against the red bag. ;)

    I have been eyeing this coat for a while now too – after seeing it on you, I might just have to get it!

    That coat is so pretty! I love coats too :)

    You look so cute in pink! I love this coat, and totally agree with the idea that if you find yourself thinking about something for weeks/months after you first see it, it’s pretty much meant to be in your closet. Totally get you! ;) Love it paired with the gray denim, too! Super cute.

    Totally agree that if you can’t stop thinking about something, you should just go for it (within reason). See: my green midi skirt from Monday’s post. Love that pink is becoming a more prominent color. So many ways to wear it!

    You and me both! I have a thing for coats but all in all I am ready for warmer weather here in NYC!

    I actually need more coats. I only have a few right now and a trench is next on the list. Love this pink one….so girly chic!

    This post is so timely for me. I’ve been trying to resist pink coats this year, but they keep cropping up and tempting me!

    awesome jeans! the color of the coat is great, like cotton candy

    I’m obsessed with pink coats and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one all season. Now I just might wait until everything goes on Spring sale before scooping one up.

    I got a pink coat from J. Crew this January because I couldn’t stop thinking about it, and although at the time I was sure it was a ridiculous purchase I would return – I have worn the absolute crap out of it and I get compliments constantly when I do. Sometimes those unexpected items are more versatile than you think! It looks adorable on you.

    Coats are my weakness too! I think it just makes an outfit. I need a pink one to add to my collection too, yours is so pretty!

    I have coat envy. xx

    coats are an addiction and zara is very good at them!

  24. Lindsey February 12, 2014 at 6:13 pm #

    Love the details on those jeans!

    im actually fainting of jealousy over that pink coat. i need it to cool down a bit in la – its 80 degrees here!

  26. Jackie @ Something About That February 12, 2014 at 10:59 pm #

    That coat is fabulous! Honestly, I don’t think I would have waited a full month before picking it up. If I have an item like that on my mind…I literally NEED to go back the next week. Maybe I’m just crazy though!

    Totally agree with your method of seeing, waiting and then buying. I do exactly the same :) xx

  28. Kirby Todd February 13, 2014 at 9:56 am #

    With the weather you’ve been having back there you deserve another coast, and a pink one at that! xx

    I love it! You made the right decision :) I have my eye on a powder blue one right now…

    I laughed because I have the same problem. I collect coats and sweaters, and I live in Los Angeles! So unnecessary, but so addictive.
