All Wrapped Up in Coats

If last winter was any indication of what mother nature has in store for us this year, your coat is going to be your best accessory.  Since our move from Florida to Atlanta, I have been coveting a few coats, including these vintage coats that make my heart flutter. 

The Long Double Breasted Coat



Wearing: This gorgeous vintage coat belonged to my mom in-law when she lived in Chicago over 25 years ago, you can find similar looks here  // J.Crew top, old // Loft jeans, old // Clutch bag, thrifted
  

The Overcoat




Wearing: Vintage overcoat, thrifted for $15! Similar overcoat styles // AG Jeans // BR Leopard bag, old // J.Crew Scarf, JC outlet last year, but I found a huge selection of plaid scarves here!

The Pea Coat



Wearing: Vintage swing coat (also known as a pea coat) thrifted for only $15  // AG skinny jeans // Louis Vuitton bag // a bunch of cute Pom Pom beanie options here.

My favorite coat in the world went up in flames in a house fire when I was only 6 years old. It was a long emerald green coat with a faux fur collar that resembled a squirrel's tail. I would wear it all winter long and I may have slept in it. Until this day, I still wonder if my coat was really "accidentally" burned...

I am currently in search of a vintage, long, camel color coat and maybe, just maybe, I'll come across an emerald green coat with a squirrel tail. Just saying.

Thank you so much for reading!

  10. You are good! All of those coats are gorgeous and look great with jeans. As much as I love coats, we don't wear them much in Texas. I'm kind of ok with that. :)
