WHEN WILL IT BE COAT WEARING WEATHER

The weather hasn’t dipped low enough for me to start wearing my heavier wool-blend coat just yet, but I can see the time fast approaching. It seems like fall is flying by this year, and the weather doesn’t seem to be playing around. The weather went from scorching hot to crisp and cool almost overnight. It has me now considering when will it be coat-wearing weather?

In the fall of the year, I usually wear a long sleeve sweater or top. This is a simple outfit formula that works great when the temperatures first start to dip. It is easy to put together, it is warm enough for an early fall day, and you can use the formula with jeans, pants, or skirts.

I went with a classic and timeless outfit today, but there is a modern element to this look. Classic pieces never go out of style, but they aren’t always on the trending forefront. This ivory ribbed turtleneck is classic, and the ribbed fabric is a huge trend right now that will have you looking modern and stylish.

I love the fit of this turtleneck, and the length is perfect. Sometimes, turtlenecks can fit too tight, and you see every little bump and lump. I ordered a medium and was so pleasantly surprised to see that the fit was slimming but not tight at all. This turtleneck comes in a wide variety of colors, so you can grab several to get you through the fall and winter. Plus, be sure to read to the bottom where I share a CELEBRATION sale that is valid until Tuesday the 12th.

I have a “thing” for nice wool coats. Joe might say that it is a problem, but I call it a love affair. Lol! There are some details that I look for when I am buying a coat, and it starts with the material. I want my coats to be thick and warm, but I also want them to be soft and not scratchy.

I prefer my coats to be cover my backside and to come at least to my thigh area.

Then, I look at the stitching, the buttons, and how the seams lay on the coat. This London Fog coat not only passed my criteria; it hit a homerun! I’m wearing the heathered taupe, but the coat comes in a couple of other colors. I didn’t even mention that the fringed scarf, which matches perfectly, comes with the coat!!!

I ordered a large because I want to wear heavier sweaters under it this coming winter. The fit is excellent, and it will work perfectly with my sweaters.

I chose to dress up my look today with a pair of Slimsation pull-on full-length pants. These are the same pants I wore with my reversible leopard print vest, but those were in black. The color that I have on today is the Dark Gray version, and I love this soft neutral shade.

Who doesn’t love pull-on pants, especially when they have a flat front? The material of these pants is very nice and looks polished and chic. The pants come in several other colors, so be sure to check them out.  The Slimsation pants line has a shape-recovery fabric with a 360° control panel that smooths with every move. I am wearing my usual size 10 in these pants, and they fit perfectly!!!

    I LOVE how you combined the beige and gray! Normally I wouldn’t like that combination at all, but the shades you used look wonderful together! Even down to the shoes – so classy!

      Everything that I’ve bought from them has been great. The coat is London Fog, so you know that is a name that means quality.

    What a beautiful and very classic outfit! I do not own one turtleneck for the reasons you referenced, so I am going to look into trying this one. Oh how I wish we were dealing with true fall temps down here. Our afternoons are warm enough to be in shorts and short sleeve tops. It doesn’t get truly cold enough to wear a winter coat much either. I wish you a fabulous day!

      The temps are chilly here in the mornings and afternoons, but as it gets closer to Halloween, I’ll be needing a jacket or a coat.

    Hmm… there seems to be a problem linking to the Appleseeds’ website or pages. This happens each time you do a post from them. Just comes up and says ‘access denied’. It might be because I am not in USA
