a new teddy


coat (anthropologie)(similar)/top (J.Crew Factory)/skinny jeans (here - similar color)/necklace (J.Crew)/heels (Madewell)/Clutch (Clare Vivier)/Sunglasses (Rebecca Minkoff - on sale!)
I spied this teddy coat on the sale rack at Anthropologie last week. It was the only one on the rack and just happened to be my size. I was hem hawing about whether or not to get it since I really wasn't in the market for yet another jacket (I've already bought more than a couple this season.)  My sister in law and mother in law convinced me to buy it and i'm SO glad I did. It's the perfect piece for spicing up any outfit and is so warm and comfortable. It feels more like a sweater than a coat. If you're able to get your hands on one of these at your local anthropologie I highly suggest it! You won't regret it.



Takeaway tip: if someone you trust tells you something looks great on you, you owe it to yourself to take the piece home with you for a couple days and spend a little time in front of the mirror with it on. If after a few rounds of this you still aren't sold you can always take it back.
