OOTD: Patterned Coat + All Black


Only 5 days to go friends! Days are getting colder and Christmas is getting closer. As you may have seen in my last OOTD + Weekly Round-up, I took a little trip to Charleston a few weekends ago and of course did a bit of early holiday shopping for myself. Here is a little look at one of the outfits I wore while on my trip and a new piece I added to my wardrobe!



I always tell myself that I have enough coats and that I’ll stop buying more, but then I see one in the store I like and can’t help but try it on. This plaid one from H&M caught my eye as all the winter coats I own are solid colors, and I thought I would treat myself to an early Christmas present! With its blazer look it helps make an all black outfit more polished.

As the winter days go on I find myself wearing more and more black. This mock-tutleneck sweater from the Gap is perfect for keeping me warm, and with the subtle design it makes it a little less plain. To go with the all black look, my go-to jeans are this high-waisted pair from Gap. I own a few pairs of them and they go with everything in my wardrobe. And for walking around the city I wore my current favorite pair of slip on sneakers that are also from the Gap. Although after walking around for most of the day my feet did start to hurt, but with the beautiful architecture of the city it wasn’t hard to ignore.


Hope you enjoyed this OOTD and let me know what your favorite coat style is!
