Greenery Dress Coat


When I first heard about the color of the year, I was ecstatic. Not only was green a color I loved all fall, my winter coat from last winter would be right in style. And the list of colors that pairs well with greenery is endless. What color am I most looking forward to? Pink, of course!









Coat: J.Crew, last season {same style HERE, green color in different style HERE} | Turtleneck: Halogen | Scarf: J.Crew, old {almost identical HERE} | Bag: Modalu {leather style HERE & HERE} | Ankle Boots: Topshop, leather version HERE | Earrings: J.Crew, sold out | Sunglasses: Prada | Lipstick: #47 & #07

Last year, I waited all winter to find the perfect time to break out this coat for the first time. And would you believe there wasn't one day that was cold enough without snow, rain or ice to wear it? There was no chance I was going to wear this coat in the snow, so I kept waiting. And waiting. Well, here we are, a year later, and I'm wearing it for the first time! And although this exact combination is no longer available, THIS style is and this gorgeous green is available in THIS different style. The color, the tie belt around the waist, what is there not to love? It was pretty chilly taking these pictures and the coat was definitely able to stand up to the cold.

Needless to say, I'm so excited to pair this green with all the bright and fun colors for spring, but in the meantime, I decided to stick to my favorite, go-to pattern: leopard. And although I bought this scarf from J.Crew several years ago, I found an almost identical version HERE -- and it's a lot cheaper! 

Since green is the color of the year, I'm looking forward to incorporating more of this fresh color into my closet, especially as we head into the warmer months. Do you have a lot of green in your closet?

Thanks for dropping by, friends! I hope you all have a great rest of the week and weekend. Any fun plans? I have a weekend full of cooking food posts, so stay tuned for some yummy recipes! And the Steelers game, of course. I'm not expecting much since we are headed to Foxborough this weekend, but hey, maybe I will be happily surprised :) See you back here on Monday!
