Winter Style: Merry & Brights

Happy New Year lovelies! I am still stuck in the Holiday season, it’s hard to believe they flew by so quickly! I am so excited for 2017 and what this year is going to bring! Though I can’t believe this first month is almost 1/2-way over, I continue to get excited as the days are getting longer and longer and we are that much closer to Spring! With the cold, drab, snowy weather we’ve been having, I can’t help but try to brighten up my day and my surroundings with this awesome jacket from J.Crew Mercantile. To say that this coat and I were meant to be together is an understanding.

Picture this – I was doing some last minute shopping before Christmas at the Mayfair Collection, and while snooping through the J.Crew Mercantile store, I noticed this lone, beautiful jacket hanging on a display. I had looked at it a few times, pondered adding it to my collection, but tried to stay focused on the task at hand. When I had completed my shopping, I met my SO at one of our favorite spots, The Smoke Shack (the newly opened location in the Mayfair Collection) for dinner. I would be lying if I said I couldn’t stop thinking about that coat, how it was the only one left, in my size nonetheless, and the 60% off storewide sale they had going on.

After dinner, I decided to treat myself a little and ended up going back to the store to get the coat. TBH, I haven’t regretted it for a second, and I’ve already worn it enough to warrant the little splurge (though it was 60% off, so a great deal for sure). The bright color goes perfect with my skin tone and blonde hair, and I particularly love pairing it with this multi-color scarf that I received as a gift. Add skinny jeans, the J.Crew perfect fit long-sleeve tee in black, a gold tassel necklace, and my black cross-body purse with gold details to match, and I am perfectly prepared for a chilly Wisconsin day.

Stay warm & xoxo,

ellie A.
