With Christmas in the rearview mirror, it’s a excellent time to snatch up some things that Santa may have forgotten during the craaaazy half-yearly sale at Nordstrom. Especially at these sale prices, doing a bit post-Christmas shopping for yourself has never been a lot more guilt-free. Quite frankly, I believe it would be irresponsible not to take advantage. Who’s with me?
We had a wonderful white Christmas in Wisconsin with my family, as well as today are heading to sunny skies to thaw out a bit. As you can see from these pictures, Wisconsin was a true wintertime wonderland, as well as this olive wool maxi coat might not have been a a lot more terrific outerwear choice to bring for the trip.
I’d been trying to find an large olive coat such as this for a long time, as well as snatched this up the moment I saw it at Nordstrom. It far surpassed my expectations both in style as well as quality. Not only am I enamored with the ties around each cuff, however the back slit has the prettiest tortoise-shell snap buttons up the back, using additional flexibility. When you’re trying to bundle up tight you can snap them closed as well as safe the large belt with big round silver buckle in the front. Alternatively, you can unsnap them all as well as leave the coat draped open for an similarly attractive look. With notched lapels, the best back storm vent, as well as the most lovely 100% wool fabric, I believe this just may be my extremely preferred coat of the season.
Whenever traveling, I always try to bring a great deal of neutral colors that can be quickly mixed as well as matched. I didn’t plan this look in advance, however the olive, black as well as cognac brown colors definitely coalesced nicely. No matter exactly how lots of olive pieces I own, I’m always surprised by exactly how amazingly flexible the color is. Wear it with black, brown, navy, burgundy, grey, ivory—you name it, an olive coat is going to look perfect.
