I still can't believe that we're halfway through winter and I haven't posted my winter coat yet! This J.Crew coat is a lifesaver. I've had it for a few years now, and this was definitely the smartest purchase I've ever made. Pro tip: if you buy a J.Crew coat, opt for the coats with thinsulate. I survived the polar vortex with style and ease with that extra lining. Even though the style of this coat is pretty classic, the bold tangerine color makes me feel like a total diva. Bright outerwear always makes winter a little less drab. 

Oh, and Fryes. These are my first pair. They were my Christmas gift to myself and so far I've had zero regrets. Alright, let me stop splurging on myself now.
