Snow & My Lille

Since we woke up (surprise!) to snow this morning, I added my long Brewster boots and Stormy Tweed Lille coat to today's outfit.  Now don't get me wrong - the tweed Lille is by no means an appropriate coat for snow or cold weather.  But it is an extra layer and just so cute!  I love how it is belted in just the front.  The fabric is a little stiff but it is so fun and sparkly.  And really I'm the kind to just wrap a scarf around and walk really fast from car to building unless I have to be out for a while.  So it worked. :o)

J Crew Stormy Tweed Lille Coat

  1. This is such a cute coat! I am so sad that JCrew only makes a limited amount of coats in tall sizes. :( There's only so many faux bracelet sleves (i.e. there too short so you pretend it's supposed to be that way) that a girl can take. It looks great on you.

  2. I have this coat, too. It is so pretty...but so not a cold weather coat! I imagine next fall I will get a lot of use out of it! a fellow tall girl, I totally laughed at your faux bracelet sleeve comment! :)

  3. WOW! The coat looks fantastic on you...LOVE IT! :)

  4. thanks FFM! It is a great coat. I wish I had one in the heavy wool too!
