3-2-1 Contrast

Coat: J.Crew (in regular, petite, and tall sizes and on an amazing sale, but hurry--sizes selling out quickly!) | Dress: LOFT (last seen here) (similar from Ann Taylor in petite and regular sizing) | Turtleneck: H&M (last seen here) | Tights: Wolford | Shoes: Loeffler Randall | Sunglasses: Karen Walker Perfect Day | Bag: Vintage | Necklace: F21 | Bracelets: Tiffany, Boutique, Vintage, F21

While this gorgeous peacoat didn't initially appear to be all that special from the online photos, I fell hopelessly in love with it as soon as I tried it on at my local J.Crew. I waited a bit for a reasonable sale and snapped up a 00P, which fit me like a dream. The wool is thick, cozy, and soft, and the contrast piping makes any winter outfit look clean, elegant, and polished (like the everyday work ensemble in these photos). With the extra 25% off (code: HOLIDAY) 30% off (code: WISHLIST) and free shipping available right now, I'm seriously considering ordering a second in another color thinking this peacoat might be a good alternative since the one I'm wearing is sold out in many sizes.

Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday, readers! Happy 12/12/12!

  6. i love this jacket - i wish our weather was warm long enough to wear such great coats!! it looks fantastic on you!! xox

  7. Bummer. This coat is sold out in my size. It looks so cute on you, though. I like this outfit for work! You've inspired me to wear something similar once it's finally cold here (Texas).

  8. So, when I have the time, I need to read all of your posts bc this is so cute! Exactly the sort of thing I'd wear (annd wore) before my days became filled with chasing down an unruly toddler. Yay for finding awesome new blogs - added to my blogroll!

  9. PS. I'm in the Springs, so maybe we'll meet up for a Park meadows or Cherry Creek day one day soon. Shopping in the Springs is about as good as what the local Gap offers...

  10. Thank you so much for posting about the coat and the sale alert! I love the coat on you and decided to snag the black/tan one online. I hope it fits okay! Glad I saw your post before they all ran out!

    1. That's great! I'm so glad you were able to snatch one up! I wish I'd been a little faster--my size was sold out not long after I wrote this post. I'll keep an eye out for your black one. I'm sure it'll be gorgeous.

  11. I love the contrasting coat!!
