In love with this little red coat!

I think we only got one day of winter but this wool number is so chic and cozy. 

If I ever had to “invest” in a piece of clothing it would definitely be a coat. When I first moved to Chicago a few years ago this was something I didn’t understand. I spent my shopping trips looking for cute outfits and the latest trends. I did not invest in a good coat. 

Ironically, as probably anyone else can guess, it’s the coat that you probably should invest in because that is the item that you will get the most milage out of. Also, that is what most people will see you in when you are rushing off to work, running errands or just going for a walk. 

The Coat you choose should also be good quality and probably a classic and flattering cut. If I wear a flashy coat I feel like I’m wearing the same thing everyday and I get tired of it pretty quickly. When I have a more “basic” option I can change up my accessories, hat, gloves, shoes, bag, hair style, and the vibe is completely new again. 

This red color is one of my new favorites! It’s classic, yet special at the same time. I love that I can dress it up and dress it down. Add heels and a sparkly clutch to jazz it up and then jeans and sneakers for  a more sporty feel.

Michael, said we are going to try a new steakhouse tonight for our dinner date. I know we should probably be going out tomorrow since that’s when Valentine’s Day is technically. BUUUUUTT, when you have a sitter that is available to stay and help out on a Monday evening, that’s when you go!

This is going to sound really bad but I can’t actually remember what we did last year at all. Total amnesia?!! Oh my, I guess Angelina must have just been a few months old and the whole thing feels like a total blur right now! 

Hope this is a Valentine’s Day to remember, at least this year I won’t be pregnant or nursing so I’ll be enjoying a nice big glass of red wine. 

Still a school night, so we won’t be getting too carried away…

This is going to be our 11th Valentine’s Day together! Wow, I don’t remember last year’s but there is one year I surely won’t forget! The first Valentine’s Day we ever spent together! Tune into tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day special to hear more about it!!

Thank you for following along, Happy Valentine’s Day however you choose to spend it!!
