I have been obsessed with shearling coats lately even though it hasn’t necessarily been cold enough in the desert to justify wearing one. Let’s just say that I made myself an early morning person just to have the opportunity to wear mine for a quick shoot 🙂 I have been obsessed with shearling coats lately even though it hasn’t necessarily been cold enough in the desert to justify wearing one. Let’s just say that I made myself an early morning person just to have the opportunity to wear mine for a quick shoot 🙂 Can you believe that this cozy beauty was only $15 on sale AND the last in my size? Talk about a lucky shopping day!
My favorite part about this *faux* shearling coat is that it’s actually fully lined with the soft sherpa material inside. It’s not just for show on the outside! In Palm Springs, I haven’t found myself needing to layer too much underneath since the coat itself is already so warm. But, it’s roomy enough to accommodate a light sweater underneath in case I’m ever somewhere colder. It looks super cute with skirts and over-the-knee boots like pictured here, or with a classic pair of jeans and booties!
I was surprised to find that a lot of you like to see me with my hair up when I shared my first outfit of 2018! Honestly, I prefer to keep my hair down and in waves because I like how it frames my face. In my day to day life though, I’m often in a high bun or pony tail. So recently for photos I’ve started doing loose low buns and have begun to sort of like it. It looks effortless and is so easy to achieve! With that said, you can expect to see more variety with my hair styles in photos this year… or me just getting too lazy to wave it 😉 On these days, a low bun with a stylish hat will do!
Unfortunately, this was the last on the sale racks at Forever 21, so I couldn’t find it available online. Sorry! I practically counted it as a thrift find (ha!). But I’ll link some of my favorite winter coats below 🙂 Happy shopping! XO
Are you a fan of shearling coats and do you have a fave this season?
