Coat Check

It’s almost coat season here in the Lou.  So, last weekend, I took my coats out of storage.   In the past couple years, I’ve been editing my coat collection, donating what no longer fit and adding the essentials.  I’m pleased with the coats I now own as it seems I do have the basics—a trench, a rain coat, a peacoat, a cozy coat, and a puffer.

If I do decide to purchase a coat this season, it won’t be basic.  I want bold color or print or something that’ll make this coat standout in my wardrobe.  If you’re in the same position, check out these coats I’ve been eying online.  I’m leaning towards the Anthro ‘Dusken Funnelneck’ coat, so I’m closely watching and waiting for it to go on sale.

1. Anthropologie ‘Leopardily’ coat ($99 on sale)

2. Old Navy plaid coat ($35 coat sale in-store)

3. Loft ‘Berry Tweed’ coat ($168, Loft offers available weekly)

4. Anthropologie ‘Dusken Funnelneck’ coat ($298, waiting for markdowns)

5. Old Navy tweed coat ($35 coat sale in-store)

    The Anthro 'Dusken Funnel' coat is my favorite, but way out of my Old Navy tweed coat budget!

    Love that red coat, number 3. It's beautiful.

    I love your Anthro choice – it's classic enough that it'll stand the test of time but got a lot of interest and isn't a plain boring ole coat.

    I love the anthro choice, if you're stalking it, will you please let us know when it goes down. Right now it's too rich for my blood, but I would love to own it!
