Winter Coats Part I

19 Oct

By Whitney

My dearest friend asked me to do a post on winter coats that are classic but don’t break the bank.  I know my besties’ taste pretty well and I knew she wouldn’t want anything flashy or over the top (I threw in some faux fur but (almost) ALL OF IT IS REMOVABLE).  I started my hunt by a) looking at options under $400 and b) coats that can be worn during the day but also to work to pretty conservative offices.  The below are the options I picked out.  Coats are pretty pricey these days so perhaps there will be a Part II of this post that shows absurdly $$$ coats that really aren’t even reasonable but we still want to dream about…

Winter Coats part I

Top Row:  Soia & Kyo Jana Asymmetrical Coat – $395 // JCrew Wool Melton Peacoat (I like that these lapels are a little bit wider than normal peacoats) – $325 //  DKNY Faux Fur Collar Walker Coat – $215 // Zara Tailored Coat – $189

Bottom Row:  JCrew Melton Military Coat (I tried this on and I’m kind of obsessed with it now) – $378 // Catherine Malindrino faux shearling coat – $155 // Ellen Tracy Kimono Sleeve Coat (I love that it has a hood!) – $270 (was $408) // Lauren Ralph Lauren Belted Stand Up Collar Coat (saving the best one for last bc I think this is my favorite suggestion on here) – $340


Brrr…Apres Ski Time!

This past weekend, we headed up to Mont Tremblant in Canada for a freezing cold weekend of fun to celebrate my bf’s brother’s bday.  It was absolutely gorgeous up there and the snow covered trees looked like they were from a fairytale.  So so pretty.  But it was definitely a place where you need to bundle up and so inspired my packing list.  I used a lot of my chalet chic holiday wish list (thank you mom and dad!).  Below was my inspiration to keep cozy despite the frosty temperatures.

Apres SkiTop Row:  Scoop Boiled Wool Open Cardigan – $315 (similar here) // Rag & Bone Newbury Booties in gray suede (AHHHH) – $495 (similar here) // Rabbit Earmuffs – $80 // Warby Parker Linwood Frames – $95 (these are my actual glasses and I love!) // Falke Knee High Socks – $40 // Devon Baer Tunic – $160  (possibly my favorite winter addition this year)

Bottom Row:  Plush Fleece Lined Leggings – $80 // Tibi Fair Isle Knitted Dress – $200  (similar here) // Rag & Bone Lund Cardigan – $290 (I also love this) // Madewell Perfect Leather Belt – $50 //  JCrew Macalister Shearling Wedge Boot – $130 // AG Corduroy Legging Jean in juniper – $130
