Leather at Last

I can't tell you how thrilled I was to need a coat on this day. My boyfriend and I decided to head into the city after plans to go apple picking got rained out this past Saturday. I finally got the chance to break out my new coat from Aritzia as we took a stroll through SoHo and Nolita. What I love about NYC is constantly finding a new place to see, never running out of ideas, etc. SoHo especially holds a very special place in my heart. I could walk through this neighborhood for hours, but not in heels on those cobblestone roads. Other than that, I should be fine!

Leave it to me to find a wool coat when I was actually shopping for a parka. However after a bit of time in the fitting room, I've realized that I should get a coat for dressier and more sophisticated styles. I've got enough bulky-cold weather jackets in my closet, so I decided to go with something different. I love the straight lines of this coat, which I'll admit looked a little funny on the hanger, but looks incredible on. I can't wait to style this coat in many more ways including blanket scarves, sweater dresses, etc. It's pretty tricky finding a good coat that doesn't break the bank. Aritzia has an amazing collection but if that's still too steep, I've been quite impressed with Forever 21's coat game this season too!
