Boohoo.com is a gem when it comes to stocking up on trendy coats. Their waterfall oversized coat is one of my faves, in particular. You all know I love versatility, so having coat that I can create different looks with is kind of major to me. I recently went back home to Detroit to lay my uncle to rest and this coat came with me. Although the circumstances were not pleasant, we made the best out of our quick visit.
This coat was perfect for the occasion because it was warm and I was able to dress it up and down. The last thing I really wanted to do when I got back home to Detroit was to deal with packing a ton of items and putting things together. For obvious reasons, the need to have versatility in what I packed was super important. Because this coat is belted and has a drape-y shape to it, I was able to wear it casually and dressed up. And y’all, don’t be surprised…this coat is thin, but warm at the same time. It’s such a great layering piece. I layered my coat over my BLANK Wardrobe turtleneck sweater and faux leather jeggings. I completed my look with ballet flats, a wool hat, and my new JustFab bucket bag.
On another note, going back to Detroit under the circumstances made me realize the importance of not taking your family and those that are close to you for granted. Hold on tight to your loved ones. Be grateful for the time you get to spend with them.
