4 winter coats you need in your closet.

Ann Taylor coat. Jeans. Sweater. Beanie. Similar bag. Booties. (also similar here.) Sunglasses.

I’m kind of a coat hoarder.  To be honest it’s one of my favorite things to add to my closet.  Maybe it has something to do with being a January baby, but I looooove a good coat.  Good winter coats (that fit) are also hard to find when you’re 4’11”, but in some ways, I think that is a good thing.  It’s made me pickier, I have to look harder to find good ones, which also means I’ve learned a lot about what makes a good winter coat, and which ones you really need in your closet.

This is the perfect time to invest in new outerwear because over the next couple weeks with all the holiday sales happening, there are some really good deals and you can pick up a pretty new winter coat for a steal.  I always ask for a new coat for Christmas or my birthday, and they make really great gifts.  (Or a really great gift idea to send to your hubby…;-)

Before you get shopping I thought I would share my 4 must-have winter coats you need in your closet:

modern farmhouse thanksgiving tablescape

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is put together pretty tablescapes for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.  Every year I come up with new color schemes and themes and have so much fun putting it all together.  I thought I would share this year’s modern farmhouse thanksgiving tablescape.  Last years, table was farm inspired as well, and I remember writing about how it was my dream to move to a farmhouse.  What a difference a year can make.  We’ve got so much to be grateful this year, it makes me extra excited to celebrate Thanksgiving!

taupe is a magic color.

suede leather jacket. black jeans. booties. (also similar here and here.) button-up. bag. sunglasses.

I feel like every season I get a color on my brain and I kind of dress around it or find a way to bring it into every outfit I wear.  This fall I feel like taupe is my color.  From these awesome OTK boots I snagged earlier in last month, to this BlankNYC jacket that I just picked up last week, I feel like I keep gravitating towards the color.  And it’s no wonder…

Taupe is a magic color.

tomorrow sleep.

When my husband and I got married we bought the cheapest mattress we could find and that was that.  We were in our early 20’s and it was fine.  But several years and a few babies later, that cheap mattress was not fine… It was horrible.  I was pregnant with Ava and miserable, and we decided to splurge and buy a really, really good mattress.  I had never slept so well, and we both decided that investing in a good mattress was not so much of a splurge as it was a necessity.

We also decided that we would replace our mattresses more frequently.  Craig started talking to me earlier this year about maybe ordering a new mattress online.  He’d heard of a few new brands doing it and was interested.  I was skeptical.  Our mattress was really good and I didn’t want to replace it unless it was something at least as good or better.  I’m not opposed to ordering things like this online, I just didn’t want to settle.  We’ve been sleeping on a memory foam hybrid mattress for the last several years, and I didn’t want to go back to a traditional mattress.  I was also skeptical about how it would work.  I mean, how do you ship a King size mattress in a box??
