Is there anything better than a timeless coat? As much as I've been having fun this season with faux-fur, I really enjoy the clean lines of a classic wool coat. This is an outfit that has been on repeat pretty much all weekend on account of it's simplicity and warmth. I subbed out my favourite black beanie for a bright mustard, and I love the pop of colour it brings to an otherwise very neutral outfit - plus the fact that it matches my weekend flowers doesn't hurt! Read on for outfit details and more photos.

This coat was purchased over 7 years ago and is still one of my go-tos - another argument on why it pays to invest in quality items! I love it's oversized feel, and how it adds a more formal aspect to a very casual sweater and jeans. I've been on the hunt all winter for a good-quality wool camel coat, but have come out empty handed. Does anyone have any leads?
I love weekend style for its comfort and simplicity. What does your Winter Weekend style look like?
Great pop of color!ReplyDelete

Thank you, I'm glad that you like it!Delete
That sweater looks so cozy!!ReplyDelete
I invested in a really good long overcoat this year as well, and hope it will last for years. I've come up empty handed on camel coats too :(. I really wanted a good quality wrap one, but everything I found was either cheap feeling or they didn't have my size. The hunt continues!

Exactly the same problem that I had! Where are all of the camel coats?!Delete
I bought a camel wool coat from Soia & Kyo last year and I love it! I get compliments all the time when I wear it. It is similar to this one http://www.soiakyo.com/ca/en/leila-long-fitted-oxblood-wool-winter-coat-for-women-with-large-collar (side zip, large neck - but it was camel).ReplyDelete
Gorgeous coat! That's almost exactly what I've been looking for! I'm totally kicking myself for starting to look so late in the season, I have a feeling that is why I had so much trouble finding a camel coat. Thanks so much for sharing with me!Delete
This is such a cool look. I love the pops of yellow, especially in the flowers!ReplyDelete

Thanks Alicia, I couldn't resist! It's been so grey here lately, that I needed the colour :)Delete
love the beanie! Target is the best!ReplyDelete
Isn't it? Too bad they're leaving Canada :( Oh well, more stateside shopping for me!Delete
I have the same bag and I love it!ReplyDelete
Isn't it great? I find it a bit heavy sometimes, but the quality can't be beat!Delete
Absolutely quirky and cute look, love the pop of colour it suits you perfectly and creates a unique outfit xxReplyDelete
