It’s no secret that come winter, it’s all about the statement coat. Coats for me, have been an item similar to bags or shoes— I tend to save up for these splurge-worthy purchases that I know won’t go out of style and can be worn for years to come. I have a reliable black peacoat, am in love with my Burberry Winter trench, and have a few other go to’s thrown into the mix—but a long sleeve, furry coat is something I’ve been on the hunt for for quite some time.

Normally a nice jacket is something I’ll add to my Christmas list, but Christmas came early this year after eyeing this irresitable Elizabeth and James coat and I’m not the slightest bit mad about it!

I went into Neimans to admire the holiday decorations and get into the Christmas Spirit (a tradition I enjoy each year), but after slipping on this Elizabeth and James staple, I was instantly sold!

Attempts in the past left me a bit underwhelmed— some coats were too bulky, others too fuzzy, and some just projected the wrong kind of oomph, but Elizabeth and James hit the nail on the head with this one. It was just right!

It’s probably one of the coziest pieces I’ve ever put on, and it’s whimsical pink tone is a major plus in my book. For an afternoon on Melrose, I threw on a pair of black jeans and a basic white top and still felt utterly glamorous! To complete the chic daytime look, I added a comfortable pair of Christian Louboutin booties, a chunky statement necklace, and a fun metallic clutch. This combo radiates personality and adds allure to this cozy winter attire!
