Lady in Red

After waiting a full 10 months, I am finally getting some use out of this red pea coat. Normally I can’t wait more than a day to rip off the tags and wear something new, but the timing of this purchase was not in my favor. Having bought this coat in dreary and cold January, I knew I’d have to wait until the upcoming fall. After an unseasonably warm start to autumn, that time is finally here.

It has been the perfect accessory as we transition from fall into winter, because its fairly lightweight. I’ve dressed it up, I’ve dressed it down, and I just can’t stop wearing it!

Plus, it looks great against the backdrop of autumn leaves.

polyIt was “Casual Friday” at work … so I opted to wear my red coat over a comfy pair of leggings, and my trusty chambray. I thought the leopard print scarf was a great way to tie together the browns and blacks in my outfit.
