Snow in April allowed for one last hoorah for my favorite peacoat. J. Crew, in my opinion, makes the BEST coats, which is the highlight of this post. The fit feels tailored, the color options are vibrant [putting a little color in the gray winter], and the wool quality is top notch. This peacoat has gotten me through the harshest of winters! I paired the coat with a metal gold accented black clutch. The clutch is a versatile accessory piece as you can wear it with a casual or dressier outfit. It can also convert into a crossbody bag with a gold chain.
I also wore a fitted turtleneck, which had gold accented buttons. A turtleneck is a better option when you're attempting to avoid wearing too many bulky items to keep you warm [i.e. a scarf]. The last two pieces that completed this outfit were these amazing 'body conforming pants' and pumps . I must say that I don't wear jeans often and Aaron [aka the hubby] convinced me to try these on. Not only did they have a relaxed fit, but they elongated my legs, making me look taller. To top it off, Banana Republic has found the secret to making heels feel like sneakers [okay, not really but close to it]. The black pumps have these memory foam cushioned insoles, making it so comfortable that when I tried them on I had to ask the the BR brand rep multiple times why the pumps felt 'like this'!
