French Connection, one of my very favorite brands (due to their slightly edgy and almost subversive take on trends…coupled with european tailoring) sent me this gorgeous wool coat. I received it in September when we were still rocking 70+ temps, and stuck it in the back of my closet.
Happy, HAPPY rediscovery. Even better? It’s still in stock, but now on crazy sale – 50% off, then another 50% off with the code 50SALE.
I’m also wearing my favorite sweater, my favorite jeans, my favorite boots, my favorite hat and drinking a warm coffee on a beautifully cold and snowy day with one of my favorite guys. I mean seriously. How lucky can a girl get?
coat: French Connection Quilted Nylon Mixed Media Coat c/o (wearing size US 0 for reference….was $300, on sale for $200, PLUS take another 50% off with code 50SALE)
sweater: Zady Essentials Sweater c/o (the warmest and most flattering sweater I own – XS for reference)
hat: Sole Society c/o
jeans: Rag and Bone Skinnies in Surf Wash (size 25 for reference)
on Pax: “ninja pants” (girl’s section, Target), H&M jacket, mis-matched gloves cause that’s how we roll, Kamik boots (so insanely warm) and a cute little hat from Target.
One note about the coat: It’s no puffer, that’s for sure. For running in-and-out, doing errands, etc. this coat is great. But if we were going to spend extended periods of time outside, I’d probably be cold. (But I am alwaysfreakingcold like sweaters-on-the-beach-in-July-always-cold, so take this with a huge grain of salt.)
It’s my birthday week, you guys. On Thursday I turn thirty-somesnarglebarglemuttermutterthing. Thursday night Mike is taking all four of us to Local for dinner, and then he and I will be doing one of our “day dates” in Philly this Saturday. I. Can’t. Wait. Philly-ites, any recommendations?
ps. Since I’m feeling totally self-indulgent…here are a few of my favs from the French Connection clearance sale.
