His and Hers Style :: Plaid coat & Black boots

Happy Friday everyone!  Same exact plaid coat, two ways, his and hers today!

:: Styling Menswear for Womenswear ::

I actually love styling menswear for womenswear.  While some pieces work extremely well, others are a little more difficult.  In my humble opinion, relaxed coats and button-up shirts are very easy to work with.  For example, this plaid coat.  With its relaxed shoulders, which I think is key, it drapes beautifully on a woman’s frame.  For sizing reference, Colin is 6’2 and typically wears a Medium.  I’m 5’0 (5’4 on a good day!) and an XS.  We’re both wearing the same coat in a mens’ Medium.

For a borrowed-from-the-boys (literally in this case) vibe but with a feminine feel, I added a wide patent belt and statement earrings to the look.  And keeping the rest of the look streamlined, I wore my favorite cashmere turtleneck (under $80) and black jeans (under $70) under.  I went to a girls’ dinner the other night with this outfit and felt like a character from the show Peaky Blinders!  It’s the coat-hat combo!

This is another Best of Budget Under $150 post (previous posts here & here).  Every piece on me with the exception of the bag and boots are under $150.  I hope you enjoyed the styling tips and photo-story!  Don’t be afraid to look in your boyfriend, guy friend, brother, father, that-cool-guy-in-your-life’s wardrobe.  And moreover, take a peek at the men’s section when you’re shopping online or in-store.

Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!

Winter Bliss Buddha Bowl

One of my favorite ways to get in plenty of veggies during the winter months is to make a Buddha Bowl like this one. I roast up tons of veggies, add whole grains, beans/legumes, avocado, and finish everything off with a fun dressing to give the bowl plenty of flavor.

Winter Coats under $150 :: Long coat & Classic peacoat

Happy Wednesday everyone!

One of the many charms of fall/winter is the outerwear.  Beautiful coats, classic pea-coats, colored coats… a standout piece that adds cheer to cold winter days.  For today’s post, I’m sharing two winter coats – a ruffle sleeve long coat and a classic black peacoat – that are fun and truly timeless.

:: Winter Coats under $150 ::

This long coat has the essence of downtown cool mixed with soft feminine flare.  I absolutely love the ruffle details!  It’s beautiful without being overwhelming and it’s subtle yet impactful.  Pairing ruffles with ruffles, I coupled the ruffle coat with a ruffle neckline sweater.  And that pop of emerald green against the navy colors brings brightness to winter blues.

Below is a true classic (and this peacoat is under $40!).  With over 1.3K reviews, this peacoat lands at over 4 stars.  My favorite part is the high funnel neck.  It gives the classic double-breasted peacoat shape a modern twist.  It’s extremely versatile and can be dressed up with a LBD and dressed down with jeans and sneakers.  I also have it in beige (as seen in this blog post), and highly recommend adding a down vest under the coat or a faux fur vest over the coat for extra warmth.

I hope you enjoyed this post!  As promised, I will feature more hero pieces under $150.  Thank you so much for reading and talk to you soon!
