Hi guys! Hope you all are having a good day. You may remember, I mentioned last week that I was taking a chunky knit blanket workshop on Sunday. Yesterday I realized that I didn’t share my finished blanket. So here you go! We had such a fun time. It was a bit challenging at first, but once you get going, it was pretty easy. If you’re interested in participating in this workshop (or any other DIY workshop offered), check out AR Workshop (they have locations nationwide).
Let’s talk coats. They need to tick off a lot of boxes, right? Think about it. They need to keep us warm (of course), but ideally they should also be stylish and easy to dress up or down and be that perfect finishing touch to our outfits. Whether you opt for an on-trend teddy coat or something more tailored and classic, I feel there is something for everyone. Let’s explore a few great options found at Macy’s.
Oh my goodness, LOVE this coat! It’s so cuddly soft thanks to the teddy-like fabrication. The cut is both flattering yet relaxed. Since it’s meant to be oversized, it’s perfect for layering. Love the big patch pockets and shawl collar. It comes in this gorgeous wine color, as well as a cognac.

A plaid coat is always a popular choice. And what is not to love about this black and white belted coat? It is such a classic design. It would look fabulous with jeans, dress pants or dresses/skirts. This coat also comes with an interior slit pocket; ideal when you want to keep certain items close to the body. And kudos to Calvin Klein for offering this amazing coat in a wide range of sizes!
Animal print perfection! This wool-blend coat will certainly keep you warm and stylish this Fall and Winter. I slipped into a small because my size was unavailable. I would say go with your normal size.

If you live in a part of the country that doesn’t get exceptionally cold or you are in need of a transitional jacket, consider this one from Ralph Lauren. It’s lightweight with a mock neck and faux-leather detailing along the shoulders. Love the quilting design. The interior lining has a gold chain-link type of pattern. Very stylish. Also, another great option that comes in a wide range of sizes.

How absolutely adorable and lovely is this coat! Everything about this is amazing – the color, the faux fur shawl collar, the gorgeous button detail, the exposed gold zipper pockets and that skirted hem! Wow, just wow. Can you see yourself wearing this to an upcoming holiday party?

A teddy coat, or some form of it, is a coat seriously worth considering for your winter wardrobe. This one is so silky soft, I just want to run my hands over this coat. lol

If you prefer a more understated plaid coat, then I think you’ll like this Vince Camuto coat. It’s just timeless and will carry you through season after season. Another amazing coat in a wide array of sizes.
Love the modern style of this asymmetrical zipper coat. And how fabulous is that red! This one was a bit snug. I probably could’ve gone up a size, so I would say if you are uncertain – size up.
