Pink Coat

Coat- H&M, Dress- Loft (similar on sale), Tights- Target, Heels- Asos, Bag- Michael Kors, Necklace- Shop Lately, Ring- Boutique to You

I've seen pink coats all over the place this winter and loved them but I never found one that was in my price range. I recently signed up to get H&M catalogs, and when I opened the one I received last Monday, this coat immediately caught my eye. Under $50? Check. Remembering that H&M had a 30% off code valid until midnight? Double check. I placed my order right then and got my coat in the mail on Saturday.

I'm always a little nervous to order from H&M online since I have a lot of sizing issues with their clothing (any else have this problem?), but in this case of this coat, it fit perfectly. I'm in love with the feminine cut of it with its little puffy sleeves and lack of a collar. I thought about styling it with lighter neutral shades, maybe a white or cream dress, but I settled on all black with a silver heel. These pumps were another recent purchase from Asos that I'm looking forward to wearing nonstop.

Next winter, I think I'll be a little more adventurous and look for a brighter pink or apricot-colored coat like this, this or this. You'd think this Dallas-ite would put a stop to her outerwear obsession considering our winter lasts about a month, but I can't help it! I just love colorful coats!

  2. Most dresses from H&M fit me really tightly in the bust area, which is crazy since I don't have much in that area. I typically have to try anything on from this retailer before purchasing. Great coat nonetheless.

  3. Look at you looking all prim & proper - love it! Although personally, I maybe would've gone with something strappy & nude or blush colored for the shoes department, but hey, what do I know ;)

  16. Definitely agree with you on that one! I have the most issues with dresses and skirts. They just run so small! I'm just glad this coat fit properly!
