Feeling FRESH and How to Bake Your Face

As I mentioned in my last post – I’m really loving red pieces this Fall. And while I’ve usually been quite conservative in my outerwear choices – I think I’m finally ready for a bright red coat!

I picked up this lipstick red coat at JOE FRESH. It’s a fun balance of lady-like and modern. The collar and length are classic, while the extra pockets and the zip fastening add an unexpected (and convenient!) twist. I especially appreciate zip closures in outerwear – who has time to button and unbutton multiple times?

And if you’re wondering why I’m wearing the coat on my shoulders as a cape – I promise you, it’s not a blogger cliche. When the weather is cold but not freezing, wearing your coat on your shoulders adds just the right amount of warmth – without making you sweat (TMI, I know!). Give it a try – you might love it!

Would you wear a red coat or is it too Little Red Riding Hood for you?

DISCLAIMER: I purchased the coat with a giftcard provided by JOE FRESH

      Hi! I'm wearing an XS, and I've found JOE FRESH outwerwear to fit slightly larger – I would say their XS is comparable to an Old Navy S?

    Super cute outfit. This is totally something I would wear. From the Hunter boots to the lace top it's the perfect mix of functional and feminine. Love it!

    I bought a super cute short red trench on sale a few years ago and it is one of my favorite fall coats to wear!! I really love yours as well. You look beautiful as always! ❤️

    You look gorgeous! Red definitely suits you and is your color. I also love your lace top! I bought one from F21 but had to return as it was a horrible boxy fit. I'm still looking!

      Thanks Noelle – it's funny that you'd say red is my colour…before blogging I'd never wear red lipstick let alone red clothing – I used to think it was too "loud" for me…funny how things change!

    I love the red with the white sweater! And I would definitely wear a red coat. In fact, it's on my wish list for this fall!
