Tis the season of colder weather! I think (fingers crossed) we are officially into the cold weather season. It was pretty warm up until October this year; not complaining but I was definitely ready for all the fall clothes. As with any other seasonal transition, prioritizing your list of items you want to add to your wardrobe should be one of the first things you do. For me, a winter coat is a necessity and always make the top of my list.
Ever since I saw this J. Crew coat last winter, I wanted it. When I tried to get it at the end of the season, my size was sold out. Needless to say, I jumped on it early this year and also snagged it on sale. Technically my mom did because I asked her to get it for me as my Christmas gift :) It is a staple piece in any girl's winter wardrobe.
The quality is amazing. It's super thick and is lined with silk. I love the faux fur around the hood, and that it's detachable. The pockets are the perfect detail and both sets are functional. It's also VERY warm. When we were taking these photos, it was pretty windy and Rob said he was starting to get cold, but not me considering I was dressed for the occasion haha.
As far as fit goes, it comes in petite but I am wearing the regular size 4. Now, I'm going to be honest. I have to get it taken in. If I sized down to the 2, it would be too tight in the arms but I'm convinced the body would fit perfect. This is what usually happens when I try to buy coats and it's super annoying. BUT, since I love the style and I will have it for years to come, getting it altered is totally worth it.
This coat has been going on and off sale for the past few weeks. Right now it's full price, but I have a feeling it might be marked down during cyber week! Be sure to follow me on Instagram because I'll be posting when it's marked down. It's the perfect gift to ask for this year!
