12 Months 12 Outfits - November
If you recall, this month is Outerwear month. I knew it was coming and I debated over what I would do. I kinda thought I'd just use the trench coat; after all, I used it in the SWAP collection and it worked really well with everything; I had the whole deal to go with it. BUT...I have needed a new WARM, semi-dressy winter coat for years; I've just kept making do with the old one that had a broken zipper and looked dingy.
If nothing else, this exercise has pushed me....more than once...to buckle down and add something to the closet that I had been postponing...mostly because I wanted to lose weight, lol.
So. Anyway. I gave up looking for the perfect coat and got a coat from Lands' End that, while not elegant, will keep me warm in Alabama's coldest days. We get very cold days...but the cold spells don't last long. More like 3 - 5 days of really cold weather, and then we're back up into mild temps...or at least, mild compared to where I grew up. Single digits happen (rarely, yes, but they do happen!), sometimes with below-zero windchills, so I need a warm coat for those situations. They happened to have a 50% off outerwear sale going on, so I feel like it was a good time to get it. I downloaded a picture...they didn't have any of JUST the coat without a person in it...and then just today discovered that it was a very small, low resolution picture. Tried to get another one, but LE apparently sold out of the coat and the image is gone. So I'm putting the picture in this month's outfit slide, but I'm not going to try to squeeze it into the wardrobe collection. It's a black coat. LOL.
Here are the accessories to date:
I haven't changed the garment slide, since I'm not putting the pitiful coat picture in , but just for a reminder, here are the garments I have so far:
One month left...wow...
