For quite awhile now, I've been thinking about getting a new coat. I've been wearing a black pea coat from Old Navy for about 7 or 8 years now...I'm just normally too cheap to spend the money to get a new one when the old one works just fine! I've had my eye on a certain style of coat for over a year now, but still...the money problem kept me from actually buying one. And now that we live in a climate that doesn't get very cold (compared to Colorado or Ohio), it seemed a little silly to buy a new coat now.
However, all that being said...I was shown a link to a coat at Nordstrom's that's almost exactly the style I've been wanting. And since it's actually a Juniors coat, it wasn't very expensive! I went today to try it on and found that it's not very thick, which means it's ideal for the weather we have here! And finally, the best part? I remembered that I had a gift card to Nordstrom's left over from the wedding...so my new coat was free!
Here is the coat that I bought. It looks better with the top button unbuttoned.
(And I have no idea what's been going on with posting pictures on blogger lately...it doesn't matter that I told it to post a "small" picture...all the pictures come out HUGE and then I have to try to resize them by hand. If anyone knows what I can do to fix this, please feel free to let me know!)
