Happy Monday, ladies! I hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend with your family. We had a great little weekend over here, which included a soccer tournament and 3 games on Saturday. So, it wasn’t very relaxing, but it sure was fun. I’ll take it!
Now I’ve got a question for y’all. Are you coat people?
Some people love a coat, and some people tolerate a coat. I generally fall into the tolerate a coat camp. I typically find them to be a bit annoying. They are often times bulky, and taking them on and off in the car, in stores, in restaurants, etc. can be such a bother. HOWEVER. Coats are obviously sometimes necessary.
Where I live, they are typically only really needed a very small portion of the year. But I know that others of you live in climates where coats are unavoidable, mandatory really, much more frequently.
Because of this, I actually get frequent requests for coat recommendations and options, so I went on a coat quest. I ordered 8 coats, and I found 2 that I really like that I’m going to share with you today.
That’s right, I found 2 DARLING coats at Macy’s! AND GREAT NEWS! Today is a Pre-Thanksgiving 1 Day Sale, and EVERYTHING in today’s post is ON SALE! And some of the items are on super sale! AND there’s FREE SHIPPING with a $25 purchase.
Now, before we get to the coats, I want to share the outfit I’m wearing with both coats today. And while I truly love everything I’m wearing, THE SWEATER is extra fabulous.
It’s chenille, and it just might be the softest sweater I’ve ever owned. It’s soft, it’s warm, and it comes in tons of gorgeous colors. I’m wearing the “fresh cream”, but I’m very tempted to pick up the “red polish” too. It would be a gorgeous color all fall and winter long, but especially for the holidays. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
It has wide ribbed cuffs and detailing at the hem, along with an exposed seam that runs down the middle of the sweater. It’s a great casual sweater that’s awesome with jeans, but it could be dressed up as well.
AND IT’S ON SALE for $19.80!
These ankle jeans are the perfect length to show just a tiny bit of ankle with a pair of booties or flats, and I really like the extra design around the hem with the contrasting stitching and frayed hem. They’re a great medium wash with no distressing, and I’m wearing my regular size 4s. And they are 40% OFF right now!
The bag is a great cognac color and a really good mid size cross body. And I love a gold stud. It’s an amazing deal at 40% OFF.
The booties are AWESOME. Wedge booties are great for the comfort they provide, but I don’t always love the look. Well, I think that these look as great as they feel. The deep cut outs on the sides add a lot of interest and are very flattering. They are comfy, stylish, and true to size.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND these booties! I’ve seen them on sale for 30% OFF before, but I’ve never seen them for 40% OFF. UNTIL TODAY!
COAT #1: PLAID POLAR FLEECE TRENCH
How cute is this coat.
I love it, and I received 5 compliments on it the day I wore it around town last week. FIVE. That’s a lot of compliments, ladies!
The material is a really thick polar fleece that is incredibly soft, very warm and so comfortable to wear. Honestly, wearing this coat is like wrapping up in a super cozy blanket. A super cozy blanket in an adorable pattern that is super flattering.
And today it’s ONLY $49.99. For a DARLING coat!!!
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
It’s cute worn open like above, but it’s also super cute belted with a knot at the waist like a trench.
And get this. This DARLING coat is only $69.
COAT #2: RED PLAID PUFFER
If you are looking for a slim fitting coat, this isn’t it.
If you are looking for a FESTIVE coat, look no further.
I. LOVE. THIS. COAT.
And it’s 30% OFF today!
It’s puffy, as a puffer should be. But not bulky.
It’s not super heavy, yet it’s incredibly warm.
And the plaid is next level cute.
You can’t wear this coat without a smile.
I love the fact that it does double duty with both a zipper and snaps. Oh, and the elastic around the wrists and waist really gives it a great fit and helps to keep the wind out.
I’m wearing a small, and it’s still perfectly oversized. I can move easily in it, which I really like in a coat. When my arms feel restricted, it dang near panics me. Please, tell me I’m not alone in that. (FYI, my arms had great range of motion in the black and white coat as well.)
I was immediately drawn to this cheery red plaid, but it also comes in black, royal blue, plum, and Kelly green.
And take a look at the hood! This baby will keep you warm (pay attention to how high the zipper goes around the neck and that you can snap the hood closed as well), and all the while you will look adorable.
And great news, if you don’t need the hood, it’s easily removable. Just zip it right off, and zip it right back on when needed.
A quick reminder of the super soft sweater and rest of the outfit underneath…
It’s a really great coat.
I will wear this during all of the colder months, but my goodness it is perfect for the Christmas season.
Here are some other coats that have caught my eye:
That’s it for today! A huge thank you to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
