I admit it, I’m an enabler. Specifically a fall/winter enabler. You want justification on buying that scarf-even if it’s your 10th scarf and we live in southern California, I’m the best friend you could ever have (a girl can never have too many scarves!). And now I blog. So essentially I’m providing enabling to whoever has the gumption to read my words. Since I’ve already waxed poetic about boots and sweaters, what kind of enabler would I be if I didn’t bring you down the rabbit hole on one of my many other obsessions, winter coats.
I’m not alone in this. Some of my closest girlfriends share this deep rooted love for outerwear. And they are native Californians! At least I try to justify it with my east coast background. Don’t know about those other girls… 😉
So, do I have a particular coat preference? No. I’m an equal opportunity coat fiend. There’s a perfect coat for everyone. Even those boxy coats that are all the rage right now, which would do nothing for me, have a closet waiting for them -namely someone tall and thinner, short, curvy girls stay away!
And since I apparently am very good at also enabling myself, I have quite a few coats. White, black, Salmon-yes, a salmon colored trench, don’t you dare judge-its adorable, and my two absolute favorites: a kelly green one and a newly acquired gray wool (which I got 50% off, thank you very much). Here I am wearing some of my favorites:
So if you need help with adding a coat to your closet, you know who to call. After all, you can’t just have one. And of course if you want to secretly go on a coat buying frenzy, here are a few places to start…
Banana: This trench would be a great addition to a wish list. It’s pricey but BR will be having some crazy sales upcoming.
Your friendly enabler,
