Two Things I Fall for Every Time...

I have a lot of coats. As in, an embarrassing amount of coats. As in, more than twenty coats....

To be fair, I live in a climate that varies drastically & many of the coats in my closet serve very specific purposes. For instance, I have my parkas (short, long, ski jacket). I have my rain jackets (black and white). I have my dress coats... which come in a wide variety of colors & patterns. Then there's the jean jackets, military jackets, and moto-jackets. The list goes on & on. It's a little out of hand at the moment.

The problem is that I truly do wear them all. Could I wear a black coat with my brown boots? Probably. But do I want to? Nope. And I justify the habit because I always buy them on sale. I have purchased one full price coat since college, and that was my new North Face last year, which was technically bought by my mother. All the others, they were deals. And that's where the problem stems from... coats + a sale = two things I fall for every. single. time.

Take for instance the coat that I wore for our New Year's Day lunch with my sister. This moto-jacket is from the Gap, was totally unlike any other coat I had, and 50% off. Who could turn that down? I certainly couldn't. (Eric claims that he would've had no problem turning it down... but he doesn't count.) It has proven to be very versatile so far & I love how it goes perfectly with my newest scarf (ahem, also over 50% off).

And just so you can see the detail on the top part of the coat, I present to you my first selfie of 2014. You're welcome... 


How many coats do you own? Am I a crazy person? 
Please don't tell me that my husband is right on this one...
