how do you take chilly temps in stride? with a patterned coat, and a cup of hot coffee. bold print is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re nudged out of your comfort zone and embrace pattern you won’t be sorry. i can see this coat worn in multiple ways, but for today’s ootd i played it safe with head-to-toe black so the spotlight shone on this cocoon coat by Banana Republic. and, if ever i abandon color in my wardrobe it’s typically in favor of black and white. it’s sleek, and chic, and is hard to beat for it’s elegance factor. i can’t think of a better way to jump start my morning than a brisk walk to the coffee shop in a stylish new coat.

I almost got the same coat! But the sizes they had left didn’t work. I got another black/white coat at BR instead!
did you buy the black and white plaid? don’t you love BR’s fall collection? they are getting better and better.
Yes, I got the black & white plaid. And, yes, great pieces in the fall collection!
Fabulous coat! Will watch for restyling…
lol! you know me all too well. stay tuned…
Love the coat, you look not only stylish but cozy and warm. I have a leopard coat that I bought a few seasons ago, it is sooooo warm and fun to wear.
