It. Is. Freezing. No other way to say it. This weather is rude and disrespectful and the only way I can fight back is buying a coat that helps to combat the cold. (well I guess there are other ways like not leaving the house or moving somewhere warm, but I love an excuse to shop!) I saw this long coat on the Club Monaco site and loved the classic shape and color. It seemed perfect on the web but then I tried it on and it was soooo much longer than the picture. #shortpeopleproblems However, I began putting it together with some things in my closet and realized that I actually liked the longer length and when I finally wore it outside for the first time, it was insanely warm! So I debunked my own myth that people 5'4" and below shouldn't wear such long coats for fear of it being mistaken for a bath robe. Eek! One solution to help offset the long style is to wear it with a monochromatic look underneath, but to be honest I have worn it with a few different jeans/sweater combos and it looks great with each one. It has also reached the point of the year where beanies become completely necessary for survival outside. And with so many great ones on sale (love this one, this one and this one), it's hard to not grab a few to keep in rotation. Though I still would rather be wearing my straw fedora on the beach, I will do my best to find the silver lining of this weather.
