If you follow @coffeethenchaos on instagram, you’ll see a daily upload of my outfits for the day. The past couple weeks, I’ve been OBSESSED with this window pane coat from Express. Tiff got it for me as a “just because” gift when all outerwear was 50% off so we got it for quite the deal.
Worn with my “uniform” (aka go-to outfit) of a button up shirt (H& M) , skinny jeans(American Eagle), & black suede booties, I decided to pair my coat with a tan color scarf which pretty closely matched my purse.
Royal blue London Sweater (Express) with black skinnies (Express), &a different black bootie. I also paired it with my popping yellow Kate Spade purse which I LOVE with the royal blue. It’s a little UC, but… GO TRITONS!
I went for a much cooler (grey/light blue tones) look with this one, striped long sleeve, grey skinnies, camel bootie, and a chambray scarf. I definitely do not think your shoes have to match your bag, but every so often, it happens and i’m okay with that.
I don’t usually get so attached to a single item in my closet, but 11 months out of the year, our weather is gorgeous and I have absolutely no need for a coat like this. So I took advantage of the cold weather and got a LOT of wear out of this window pane coat. I wore it so much I decided it warranted its own post. Besides, when your sister gets you an awesome jacket like this “just because” you better wear the shhh out of it.
