Sometimes I photograph my complete cold weather ensembles because I am such a sucker for a good coat. Despite my archival efforts, I don't always share the visual results on the blog. I tend to wear coats in rotations because they vary in weight and suit different patterns of weather. Some of my boldest coats don't transition across a range of outfits easily. I've noticed that those ones end up being worn less overall. But once I've pulled something and grabbed gloves and scarves to match, my laziness takes over and it becomes the default outerwear for a week or longer.
For Valentine's Day I remembered to wear this Zara coat from 2007.
The bright red can be a tough match because my wardrobe relies heavily on vibrant prints. But I managed to wear it quite a bit.
This week I've been wearing my black and ivory MBMJ coat from 2008 (bought on ebay in 2009-10).
On the coldest weeks I've relied on this old staple which is my warmest coat.
It is another Marc by Marc Jacobs coat but from 2005ish? I bought it in 2007 (also from ebay).
Lastly, I've been wearing my new Burberry coat which photographed kind of poorly but I think is pretty darn cool.
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live in a place where such an arsenal is unnecessary. But I am glad for the seasonal variety because of my love for coats!
