Waving at fellow peacoat quadruplets Sona, Janet and Emily!
Janet wore hers today as well:
and Sona wore hers yesterday:
and Emily has one on the way!
I'm pretty much copying Jessica Quirk's WIW that I did for the Blogger Copycat Challenge (inspiration pic in #10):
Here was my version:
but I loved her version so much that when I saw the recent cyber super sales, I scooped up the exact same J Crew peacoat and burgundy cashmere sweater that she wore.
Tipped Peacoat in antique white--was $298, I got it for $97:
(By the way, PSA--the tipped peacoat is marked down to $129 on the website and with the code WINTER you can get 25% off $150 and free shipping, so that brings it down to $97! It also looks like they've removed the "final sale" from the webpage, so it should be returnable now!)
Collection Cashmere ribbed sweater in cabernet--was $288, I got it for $159 (unfortunately it's not on sale anymore):
This sweater is sooo soft! I haven't had a truly high quality cashmere sweater before--the only ones I have are the Only Mines from Nordstrom, which are OK (great for the price) but they started to pill after only a couple wears. I ordered another J Crew cable fisherman's sweater (non-cashmere) and it is itchy so I'm returning it. But this one is so comfy and soft against the skin!
Since it was raining today, I paired it with my chianti Aquatalia rainboots. And I found a patent burgundy clutch at DSW that exactly matches my rainboots, how cool is that! Another matchy matchy score! My first oversized clutch, how fun! Although, I also included pics with my more practical black bag--which one do you prefer?
I have to admit, I felt better about my outfit IRL than I do now looking at these pics. I don't know if it's the way I'm standing/slouching, but I feel like I look kinda fat in the pics--I know the jacket was not designed as a maternity coat, so it looks a little funny flaring out over the bump. But IRL today I got lots of compliments about my jacket and boots, so I guess it looked OK. I think this outfit will look better on me once I get rid of the baby tummy (it's going to take me a lot longer than Jewell though!) and can button up the coat.
Thanks for looking and commenting!
