Coat: Ted Baker  || Shoes: Steve Madden || Jeans: Madewell || Sunglasses: Rayban || Bag: Tory Burch, old (similar here) || Sweater: Loro Pina (similar here)

I picked this coat up as an early birthday present last week on major sale during the Bloomindale’s Friends & Family event and I have been anxiously waiting for the temperatures to drop so I could wear it without overheating.  At first the bright lining made me think it wouldn’t be very practical (my closet mostly consists of black, gray and tan…anyone else with me?!), but now I find myself planning outfits around the colors in this coat. This whole outfit has me feeling sophisticated and feminine without trying too hard, and I have a feeling variations of this look will be on rotation as we head into the cooler winter months.  I hope everyone has a great Friday and TGIF!
