Happy Fashion Friday!
This week has been really nice and peaceful. Earlier in the week the weather was so pretty and I got to run and walk outside and I even went to a studio yoga class. Plus Makena's puppy training is finally clicking (although she's still crazy and I have a lot of work to do!) For the first time in awhile life has felt somewhat normal and calm. After a lot of drama lately, it's been a wonderful change of pace.
This weekend I get to see my Goddaughter Isabella and celebrate Evelyn's first Birthday! Sadly even though I did a bunch of Super Bowl party posts, I'm not actually throwing one this year. The Hubs work starts to get busy around this time, and he starts working weekends again, so we lay low until after tax season is over. However, I am planning on watching the game with him and making a few yummy recipes for two!

Soooooo let's talk fashion! I got a crazy nice and useful coat for Christmas from the Hubs. I had been wanting a really nice brown leather coat for awhile and I really got spoiled with this one!
It's a Cole Haan and is made so well. I know it will be something I wear for years and years. I thought about getting a black one in more of a moto style. They are super popular right now, but at the end of the day that's not really me. I am the pure opposite of edgy!
One of the biggest fashion rules that ALWAYS stands true is to stay true to yourself and the kind of clothes YOU like and look best on you. That way you will always feel good and love what you are wearing. Make trends work for you!
So instead of going with the zipper covered black jacket (which I love on other people,) I went with a streamlined buttery brown one. Classic lines always win when I'm out shopping.
To keep the look fresh I paired it with my black skinny pants and striped shirt from white house black market. I also added my new ankle boots I featured a few weeks ago.
I've got a feeling this coat will be going with EVERYTHING as we approach spring. It can even make some summer dresses work into spring.
AND I match my puppy. Makena is always outside when the Hubs and I are taking these and so many of my outtakes have her running around in the back. Her sweet little face is just so mushy and kissable-- especially when she's learning to listen to it!
Now I know this coat is a little pricy, but I believe in investing in quality pieces on occasion and this is one I think it worth it. The Hubs got a really good deal on it at Dillards, but I linked to it at Macy's because they always have coupons and specials to help bring the price down.
Happy shopping and happy weekend! As always, I'd love to hear what you've got going on this weekend in the comments.
