Coat season is my favourite! Not because it's cold, but because I LOVE coats and jackets. It's because I love to layer. A great coat makes every outfit pop. Even exercise pants, a tee and sneakers. Trust me. When I am tired and too lazy to put on real pants because I was up half the night stressing and then waking up with a crying toddler, and I just have to go to the grocery store, I throw on my black stretchy pants, my favourite sneakers and a wicked coat to finish it off. And then...BAM. You look like you have your sh!t together. It says to people, hey...I'm cool, but I didn't really try that hard, I'm just naturally awesome. hah! You win.
SO, when I put on this outfit, my husband told me I looked like I should be in Harry Potter. And like...I love Harry Potter (like, LOVE), but I don't want to look like a wizard. So I was a little worried that I would look ridiculous. Anyways, he was wrong. If I look like any wizard it's a badass fashion wizard, no?! I was searching for a great black coat for quite awhile, but this one (of course from Zara), was my pick because of the length. Now, I am tall. Like tall enough that people comment often. So it's good to have a long coat that looks proportionate! (I also think super long coats on small girls looks amazing, because I'd just like to be a small girl, but that's just me) Anyways, this outfit is all about proportions. It's a bit oversized, but I'm not swimming, and the length of the coat is what really makes the outfit. So if you buy anything this fall, buy an amazing coat.
