New Coat for a New Year

I am not usually one to make resolutions but one resolution I should make for the New Year is to not buy any more coats! I have always loved coats, which made sense when I lived on the East Coast but since moving to Los Angeles, coats are something that I very seldomly wear. Sadly, this hasn't stopped me from acquiring quite a collection of coats! This year, for whatever reason, I purchased several coats, including, most recently, this gorgeous lilac coat from J. Crew. It was such a great deal, not to mention my favorite color, that I couldn't resist! You might recall that I also purchased this Boden coat and this Kate Spade coat in previous posts from a couple of months ago. In my defense, I think designers have really come out with some gorgeous coats this year, so it was difficult to resist temptation!

Because purple is my favorite color, nearly everything in my wardrobe goes with this coat. For one of my first outfits of the New Year, I paired my new coat with a striped cashmere sweater that I purchased at the end of the season last year at J. Crew and some yellow pants. I also pinned my new star Loren Hope star brooch to the coat because it turned out the be the perfect accent to give this winter outfit just a touch of sparkle! My hope is that the weather cools off a little for the next couple of months so that I can get more use out of all of my recent coat purchases, either that or, maybe, I should just move to a cooler climate!
