Outfit Of The Yesterday: Rusty Red + Ivory + Black + Jade

♫: Kiss Them For Me - School of Seven Bells

It is hard to believe that we are nearly one week away from Thanksgiving, hm? Husband and I are planning on having some old friends in town AND (after that!) traveling for the holidays this year, so I am currently being as lazy as possible at the moment to soak it all in. I have never actually traveled over the holidays before (a la chaotic airports and chaotic airplanes) (I should clarify: I’ve slid up I-25 through an icy-wind-bucket named Wyoming more times than I would like to count via car), so if you guys have any airport holiday travel tips please send them my way! It’d be much appreciated.

I am really looking forward to catching up with some old friends, though–I think that it’s the stuff like that that makes the holidays special. Are you guys planning on doing anything fun over Thanksgiving? Traveling anywhere neat? Cooking up something cool?

On to an outfit! Oversized coats were all over the runway for fall yet again this year, and while it’s a look that is probably doesn’t work for everyone, I like them because they are the ultimate in comfy-coziness.  My only tip for wearing them? Make sure to keep the rest of your outfit sleek & easy, since these coats tend to add bulk. Below are 10 of my favorite coats from around the internet:

1. textured faux fur collar boyfriend jacket (topshop) - shop it! 2. gray wool oversized coat (dorothy perkins) - shop it! 3. soft angora boyfriend coat (topshop) - shop it! 4. wool blend bridge coat (ann taylor) - shop it! 5. the commoner coat (need supply co) - shop it! 6. faux fur collar oversized coat (topshop) - shop it! 7. spiewak beekman peacoat (zappos) - shop it! 8. ASOS Coat with Oversized Faux Fur (ASOS) - shop it! 9. dv by dolce vita athe zig zag coat (piperlime) - shop it! 10. bow coat (j crew) - shop it!

 

And an outfit, in which I kind of look like I am wrestling with my pants. Oops:

    That blouse is so cool! I love the zippers. I actually thrifted an oversized coat over a year ago. Ahead of the times! :)

    That coat! Such a beautiful color. I love the fur trim too. Good luck with all of the travel Chloe. I’ve never done Holiday traveling before, but I’m sure it does get hectic! Just be sure to have some good magazines and music!

    I was abscent from my blog due to trip to Japan and all, but never seized to check your outfit! (it’s true!) As always, I love how you coordinate the texture, design, and colors of your clothing pieces… Such an inspiration. I love all of your outfit above! <3

    Love that J. Crew necklace SO much and this coat is beautiful with the oversized fur collar. I definitely like the look of this style of coat, but will have to try them on first to see if it will work on me…a little nervous that my broad shoulders will make me look like a linebacker though! :)

    That necklace is in my wishlist for Christmas.
    We are staying in DC this year. We are going to one of our favorite restaurants in town for dinner (which also happens to be Condi’s favorite) and then we are just going to chill all weekend long.
