Grown-Up Coats

01/26/2015 33 Comments

Good coats are wasted on Florida weather. For years I avoided the investment because we sunshine-staters rarely have an occasion to wear them; but once in a blue moon, some formal event pops up on cold evening and your coatless self is left with two options: 1.) Grin and bare it (there’s nothing chic about chattering teeth); or 2.) Cover up that cocktail dress with your denim jacket from the Gap.

This year I decided it was time to address the coat deficit in my closet, since a 30 year old should probably have appropriate outerwear that she didn’t find on a clearance rack in the juniors department during college. I bought this Via Spiga wool blend trench on Hautelook for less than $100 at the start of the season, and followed it up shortly after with a black Vince Camuto number.

Wearing:

Via Spiga coat
Cynthia Rowley silk floral tank (Marshall’s)
AE hi-rise jeggings
I.N.C. navy suede pumps
Hobo ‘Lauren’ clutch wallet

I'm a small town lady from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style. I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear. (Or watching Netflix and drinking wine.)

  • […] Wardrobe Stable For a lot individuals you are enduring the winter chill or freezing cold, while that is not the case for me, it is still good to invest in a quality coat like Keira from A Pretty Penny has here […]

    That coat is so simple and chic – and the color is very pretty! Unfortunately, unlike you sunshine-staters, coats in NYC are a must for at least seven months straight, but there are endless style options!

    I am a totally coat-obsessed Floridian! I grew up in the northeast and while I don’t miss the cold, I can’t stop drooling over every damn coat on the internet right now. Love the one you picked!

  • eternityofgrace 02/03/2015 at 2:37 pm

    I am in love with that entire outfit<3

  • Foodie Alert 02/02/2015 at 10:11 pm

    I love this coat! I have it in a black & purple plaid design. Wear it almost everyday and on weekends, it is so versatile!

    Love that coat! It is so on point with the wine/burgundy that we’re seeing this season! Love it :)

    A pretty penny this coat is absolutely adorable! I love the color, it’s super rich, and the length is perfect for our winters here in Florida and it adds a tailored look to any ensemble. There’s nothing wrong with a cute investment as such every once in awhile, especially for that price!

    Love the coat and overall look! How are you liking the high-rise denim thing? I have yet to try some on. They look great on you!

  • the hair & the heart 01/27/2015 at 5:14 pm

    I love the cranberry color of your coat. Definitely agree with quality over quantity.

  • Christie Wang 01/27/2015 at 11:31 am

    Such a great coat choice! Quality over quantity when it comes to coats!

    Classy. I like the look. We also lived in Miami, FL because in 1997-2001, and that was also my dilemma.

  • anaarra 01/27/2015 at 10:07 am

    That coat is perfection!

  • lindsaybb 01/27/2015 at 12:20 am

    A fellow Hobo Lauren fan! I’m on my second… :)

  • Yanira Roman 01/27/2015 at 12:19 am

    These types of coats are my favorite. They are so classy and pretty 😍

  • alphawhiskeyfoxtrot 01/27/2015 at 12:01 am

    I’m unashamed to confess that I’m a total coataholic. Fortunately, I live in a place that gets plenty of winter weather, but not *so* much winter weather that my coat has to look like a sleeping bag. I like yours. Such a pretty merlot! :)

  • kessekisses 01/26/2015 at 10:47 pm

    Love this!!

    Reblogged this on Come Listen Guys 💙.

  • sweetaboutme_xx 01/26/2015 at 4:45 pm

    That’s a great colour for a coat. I only have 2 at the moment – a red and an olive green. It doesn’t get quite cold enough in Sydney to wear them constantly but I do manage to pull them out for a night or 2 in winter :)

    That is so true. FL is only cold when it’s inconvenient!

  • britt kingery 01/26/2015 at 11:35 am

    I love a good coat much more than the weather needed to wear it! Love the color of your coat, I have a similar one and it’s super versatile. I bow down to your shoes, though! TOO CHIC.

  • Lovely Sami Anne 01/26/2015 at 11:07 am

    ^ Sucks even more the further south you live, haha

  • Lovely Sami Anne 01/26/2015 at 11:07 am

    That is such a cute coat. You make a great choice! I did the same thing two years ago. I think I’ve worn it twice in said two years, but so worth the investment. It is a similar style to yours, yet bright red. The deeper red/burgundy color is gorgeous though. Boo to living in the sunshine state and not getting to wear our cute coats often.
