I went to the mall today and showed some restraint and came home with a coat from Express (that I had tweeted about, I took everyone’s advice and got the camel color) and a few items from A&F.

I first saw this coat on Hanna’s blog and fell in love instantly. I initially wanted to get it in navy as it looked nothing short of gorgeous on the model but I have a Marc by Marc Jacobs coat in a similar color so I started having second thoughts. I had also wanted to order online but read in one of the reviews that the camel was more “white” than camel so I hesitated. When I went to the mall and saw it in real life I couldn’t take my hands off it. It’s so flattering and I had to have it, even though it was more expensive than it had been online.

Pretty, right? The XS fits perfectly and has enough room for heavy layers though the material probably isn’t thick enough for New England winters.

 I think it’ll get a lot of wear this fall. I’d love to get some ideas for what would look good with it.

I’ll do a post about my A&F purchase later today or tomorrow…now I get to catch up on blog posts. I saw on Twitter that Elle’s Blog Sale has started.
