Coats of Many Colors

Although the temps are suppose to hit the 80's today in Texas, I found myself on line shopping for another coat to add to my closet.  It does get pretty cold in January and February around here, so I need to be prepared.
I am always attracted to colorful coats.  It may have something to do with the fact my closet is full of nothing but black, brown and grey in the wintertime.  
My #2 got this coat in a fuchsia.  It looks great on her.


Here I am, back to grey again!  Still love the coat though. 

Love the cut and buttons. 

So cute! I tried this on in the store but they didn't have my size (triple 0). 

I think this one is my favorite.  Love the cut and the color. 

 Very cute, but I think I might be a little too old to carry this off (but only by about 6 months though).
 Very pretty.  I would look great in this one if I were six inches an inch taller and twenty pounds a couple of pounds lighter.
Hope you're staying cool if you're in Texas and warm if you're anywhere else.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. So funny and those are some cute coats. I need a new one, too. It was 77 here today. Certainly doesn't feel like December.

  2. It has been really warm here in Kentucky the last few days, so no coats. Today it is raining and the weather is cooling off. I love coats. They are especially great for wearing over jammies at walmart :)


  3. So happy you came over to visit me today. Lovely to meet a fellow Texan!
    Merry Christmas !!

  4. You've got great style! I'm in need of a new coat, thanks for picking some cute ones out for me.:)


  5. I LOVE ALL OF THESE COATS! I love Talbots these days, I really think they have stepped up their A game. I am going to check some of these outs, I need some color! THANK YOU!


Tuckernuck for Spring!
