Blogmas 2014 – Day 8: Belted Wrap Coats

Happy Monday & Blogmas Day 8!

I’ve usually been kind of “meh” when it comes to winter coats, I never gave them much thought. Lately though, I have been completely obsessed with belted wrap jackets! I never realized how much a good coat could add to even the frumpiest of outfits.

I picked up a really fun burgundy/fall belted wrap jacket from Target a couple of months ago and have been in LOVE with it!

It falls just about mid-thigh

I get so many compliments whenever I wear it – it’s comfy, it’s warm, it has awesome deep pockets & the belt tie makes it so easy to put on/take off. Target has a black & white one that I really wanted too (I couldn’t bring myself to buy 2 coats in September)…but I think my little sister mayyy have taken the hint & picked up my Christmas present early 😉

Not sure why they styled the model like this, I feel like her outfit takes away from the jacket, but the coat is so adorable in person!

While I’m in love with my two Target finds, there are so many others out there that I have been eyeing! Take a look at a few of my favorites! 🙂 –>


T Tahari Black Marla Wrap Coat – Neiman Marcus: $195.00

 Trina Turk Red Belted Wrap Coat: Normally available at Nordstroms, but I cannot find it in stock anywhere!

Spontaneous Spring Shopping

The other night I randomly decided to go shopping, I needed to find some outfits for a couple of upcoming parties/events I was going to. I was trying to avoid Nordstroms because I know that they have this adorable coral Kate Spade Bag that I have literally been having dreams about, but am not ready to drop $500 on…

Isn't she so pretty? 🙂 Sigh. It may be an early birthday gift to myself...

So I took a trip to Marshalls instead- I was so excited with my finds! (Well most of them)

I tried on this super cute pants/jumpsuit, but it was SO huge! I was literally swimming/tripping over it. 🙁

I guess us short girls have to stick to our rompers… 😉

Ahh...can't wait for Summer country concerts 🙂

So, back to my shopping trip… I was looking for color! I’ve been trying to buy more (only) colorful clothes lately. Look at how cute these two dresses that I snagged are!

This green dress is perfect for summer- I actually thought it was a romper when I picked it up. It's so light and can be dressed up for work, or down for a picnic/weekend. I was excited about this find, and it was only $17 🙂
This was the winning ticket...I'm in love with this dress! Aside from the vibrant orange color, it is so comfortable, forgiving, and it was only $25 🙂

I was so thrilled with my dress finds, and I was completely content… until I walked by this black DKNY purse. I just could not turn away (probably because it reminded me of my Kate Spade dream bag :(…)! Every time I walked by I found myself picking it up, trying it on, feeling the ridiculously smooth leather, then putting it back. But every time I left I’d immediately turn right back around to make sure nobody else had grabbed it. The more I thought about it, I figured it’d be the perfect purse for work, going out, or any special occasion…and truthfully I don’t have a small bag like that. I had to have it…


When I got home I discovered all of it’s functionalities! It appears as a traditional 2-strap handbag, but can be converted to a 1-strap shoulder or cross body bag. How convenient. My purchase was justified 🙂

AND when I opened it up, I discovered that it came with a sham tucked inside! That is very rare for a Marshalls purchase!

What have you picked up lately? Anything fun or colorful?
