Coat and Boots

I wish my photographer would tell me to smooth out my sweater but. . oh wait. tripods don't talk.

I got the boots. After coming across a major coupon I was able to get them at nearly 1/2 price! #winning

Anyway, I love 'em. This is my first pair of wedge boots that are higher than 1/2 an inch. They feel good. Harder to walk in than the flatter ones, but still good.

I also picked up this coat at H&M for a measly $40.00 when my family and I were shopping downtown Chicago. H&M can be hit or miss for me, but this time it was definitely a hit!





Boots: Loft
Sweater: J.Crew Factory (similar)
Necklace: c/o VeryJane
Coat: H&M
Jeans: Loft

It was about 58 degrees yesterday so instead of donning this coat for a little blog photo op alone, I got to wear it the rest of the day. I don't doubt that we'll see 80 degrees again this month, but yesterday. . .yesterday I got to enjoy my coat.

    I was just wondering what kind of workout pants and sneakers you are wearing in one of your recent instagram photos, and if you would recommend them?
    Thanks!

  19. Isn't getting something you've wanted for a while so awesome?! I recently got a pair of boots that I've basically been stalking from Aldo for under $100!! I can't tell you how much I love them!

  29. So cute! I'm currently having a Loft obsession, I want everything in their store! Plus, the coupons and sales help ;) I think just about every outfit I've posted lately has something from Loft involved.

  30. I'm dying for that jacket! Fall and winter clothes are just so much more fun to me. Wool pea coats just make my heart swoon.

  31. I LOVE THAT JACKET!!! Is it true to size?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I went out today and got this coat. It seems true to size. I wear an 8 jean, so wanted a 10 in the coat. (To fit sweters under), they only had 2 left in the store, a 12 and a 2. Got the 12 it fits fine. 10 would have been perfect, but 12 looks nice also.

  32. I must admit, as much as I LOVE reading your posts everyday and seeing all the CUTE things you have, my bank account doesn't have the same appreciation for your posts! haha! Thanks for sharing! I've already looked into purchasing the jacket! Been looking for a decent one at a decent price! Thanks!

  33. Hey Kate, I love your loft jeans! I've been wearing jeggings lately because I HATE the "diaper butt" look that jeans get when they become saggy after a few hours. Do these loft skinnies you're wearing maintain their shape pretty well? Thinking about buying a pair but don't wanna spend $70 for jeans that are going to sag! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They don't sag, but they have plenty of give. ALSO wait for a coupon. Loft is faithful at offering GREAT deals often so I almost never buy things full price. "like" them on Facebook and you'll be in the know!

      Delete
    2. If you are looking for jeggings that fit great at a decent price you can also check out New York & co. Fit very nice without the sag.

  37. That's so funny you used the words hit and miss... That's what my husband and I call H&M - Hit & Miss!

  38. Love your necklace! I have been on the hunt for some new black boots...just can't seem to find the perfect pair at the perfect price.

  40. Do you have a photo of the wedges on your boots? All you showed was the front.
    I love the colors!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love this outfit! :) I just noticed the necklace from your giveaway you had a couple weeks ago. When do you decide on the winners? :) I'm just in love with it and I keep checking everyday to see if the winners were announced. :)

    On a side note, I follow you on instagram and saw you are about to be in a sprint triathlon! I'm just curious what's involved in preparing for that. :) I would love to see a blog post about it! :)

  42. *Ahem* Was it the coupon I sent you?! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. those are super cute! question... how do they fit around your calf? i've got a bit of a larger calf, so it's really hard to find the proper fitting boots for me.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very cute! I hate the "boots over jeans" look but you chickie, you actually pull it off splendiferously!

    I have a similar coat in light lavender from Old Navy (Christmas ) and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My favorite item is the lip scrub!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love it! Is your hair color still the same you had posted earlier?

    ReplyDelete
  47. hey! i almost bought that coat yesterday. its a good looking coat and it looks great on you (:

  48. Thank you so much for this post. I've been looking for new jeans because I lost 30 lbs this year and I wanted to celebrate my new body. I never would have thought to look at Loft for jeans, but thanks to you I did and I LOVE them!!!

  49. This is adorable! You should post some pictures and ideas of how to wear riding type boots, or the type you are wearing, with longish shirts or short thin dresses! Like with tights/leggings and cardigans and skinny belts!(:
