I didn’t used to understand wrap coats – why would you want a coat that doesn’t button up the front? But after wearing this Lydia Wool-Blend coat from GUESS – it all makes sense!
|Coat: c/o GUESS / Camisole: H&M / Jeans: H&M / Bag: ALDO / Shoes: c/o Nine West|
This type of coat is perfect for errand days, when you’re constantly switching
between indoors and outdoors. When I step out of the car, I wrap the
coat around me – and I’m immediately blanketed in warmth. And once I’m
indoors – I just let the coat unwrap and fall open. I don’t overheat –
and I don’t have to keep fastening and unfastening my coat – it’s very
Now that the temperatures have dropped in Toronto, I’m glad to have this cozy coat to wrap myself in! I also love the oversized cocoon design – the style and length works with both dresses and jeans.
|Pink ALDO bag|
Okay – now on to bag confession time…I’ve been purchasing a LOT
of bags recently – some are guilt-free – like the bags I’ve purchased
during the ALDO sale for $20 – $30 (!!!). I have also made some guilt-inducing

This tapestry bag is “interesting” but I’m obsessed with it. The unlikely combination of the old-fashioned fabric with the jeweled clasp makes it an acquired taste – but for some reason, I want to use it ALL the time! And because I got it during the ALDO clearance sale, I won’t feel guilty about donating it if I ever fall out of love.
|Rebecca Minkoff Pink Velvet Bag|
I’m not sure if I should keep this bag. While I adore the trendy pink velvet fabric of this Rebecca Minkoff bag, I usually try to spend less than $100 on seasonal items…AND I also own another pink velvet bag (featured in this post). It’s definitely very photogenic though! What do you guys think – is it a keeper?
|ALDO bag with patches|
The white bag in my outfit post was also purchased from ALDO during their sale. I like the contrast of the elegant shape (reminiscent of an Hermes Kelly) with the colorful embroidered patches – it’s a fun bag for sure!
Which of my recent bag purchases do you like the most?
