I’ve always wanted a white coat but white as outerwear is not really practical, is it? Most people go for darker colors because it makes more sense. Dirt and stains don’t show up so easily on dark colors and you really don’t have to wash it as often. But, I dared to be different and go against the grain. It was time for a new coat because the feathers in the coat that I’ve had for 4 years are shedding so much that there’s not much padding left (it’s the same brand as this one – not on purpose). I didn’t want to start adding ridiculous layers just to stay warm so I had to upgrade. I got this Laundry by Shelli Segal coat on sale at Nordstrom Rack and fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on. The funny thing is that I tried on so many other coats and found this one on the floor because it had fallen off the hanger. 🙂 Once I tried it on, I put all the others back and went right to the checkout line.
This coat is amazingly warm and, get this, it has two fur trims! One on the collar and one on the hood AND they’re removable! The fur on the collar keeps my neck so warm that I don’t need to wear a thick scarf with it. It’s attached by button loops so they can be easily removed. The fur-trimmed hood, which is attached by a zipper, frames my face so well that it keeps the wind at bay. So, depending on the temperature, you can opt to go with or without the collar or the hood. 🙂 The lining of the coat also is leopard print which adds a nice detail to the coat.
The boot cuffs that I’m wearing in the photos are a great addition for keeping the legs warm. It was about 26 degrees when these photos were taken and it was sooo windy. But the coat, combined with the boot cuffs kept me so warm! The coat and boot cuffs are both linked below.
