The Perfect Fall Topper

The Perfect Fall Topper

I mentioned in this post that before each season starts I typically like to identify the few items I want to pick up to round out my wardrobe. My version of a capsule wardrobe, if you will. I knew I wanted a leopard coat but hadn’t been able to find the perfect version. I wanted something a little oversized and one that didn’t look cheap…and my search proved harder than expected.

I ordered this one from JCrew for three times the price, but I didn’t like the way it fit (or the price) so I sent it back. I am SO glad I held out for the perfect version because this is IT.

I honestly never even go in this store but I was just walking to lunch one work day last week and saw this hanging in the window and knew I had to check it out! I walked in and tried it on and it was love at first sight.


I was so excited to wear this beauty to dinner and a movie with Kingston last night and I got so many compliments from strangers! It kept me super warm and will add a fun pop to my fall/winter outfits. Let me know if you love it, too!
