Statement Coat

Thursday, February 15, 2018 3:30 AM

Happy Thursday Loves! 
It is February 15th do you know what that means? It means we are officially more than half way through February! I seriously can't complain, it has been super mild in fact it is supposed to be in the 60's today!  Not only was yesterday Valentines Day, but it was also Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. This year I am going to be giving up peanut butter. Some of you may be thinking, 'so what, no big deal', but if you know me, you will know it is a tremendous deal. Every morning I eat two rice cakes with peanut butter. It seems that over the past year, my hand has gotten heavy while distributing this delicious heavenly spread and I probably consume six servings of peanut butter every morning. 
I am not just cutting back, I will cutting it out... for at least the duration of Lent.
Does anyone have any healthy breakfast suggestions? 

Statement coats have been front and center this winter and I am loving it!
 I have had this strawberry pattern Dolce and Gabbana coat since the mid 90s, how fabulous, right? It hasn't really seen the outside of my closet since my club girl days but if there was ever a time for this coat to reemerge, it is now.

Do you have any pieces you have hung onto for decades?

  9. What a cute coat! I think that everyone should have one statement winter coat in their closet. It would definitely be hard for me to give up peanut butter for lent.

  13. That is such a fun coat! What a great print on it, so nice with the bright pants :)

    Good luck changing your breakfast habits too! My breakfast changes depending on what I'm doing that day - breakfast on my office days is usually eaten on the run, haha.

    Hope you are having a wonderful week. The heatwave continues here unfortunately, so uncomfortable!

  28. I am so glad you held on to that amazing Dolce+Gabanna cherry coat cause it is so stunning. It looks so posh and sophisticated with your emerald culottes and oversized turtleneck. Love the cluster bracelet and CHANEL bag with this.
