Style Scenario Collaboration: Winter Coats

Happiest of Monday to you all!

Today is my official birthday!!

I'm so happy and blessed to see another year of life. I will have a birthday recap of all the fun I had over the weekend and last few days on tomorrow's blog post.

Today, I've teamed up again with my lovely blogger babes Carmen from SimplyCarmenRenee and Rochelle from TheBloggerella for another style scenario. Today's scenario is all about winter coats! Such an essential piece to the cold season. We wanted to show you guys how to style one and still look chic especially during the holiday season. Head over to their blogs and see how they styled their fab winter coats. 

                                  Me          ||       Carmen    ||    Rochelle                                                                                       

During the winter months it gets very hard to showcase your personal style in your outfits because of all the layers we are forced to pack on. This is why investing in a fab winter coat is one of the main essentials for the cold season. From a bold print, bright color, or even subtle accents like fur can make all the difference for a great winter wear.
It's no secret that houndstooth is one of my favorite prints and this coat is one of my favorites season after season. Would you believe me if I told you I got it for only $20?! I found it last season at Joyce Leslie during their winter sale. I honestly could't believe the price it was dropped down to. I knew this coat was going to become a statement piece for the winter. 

I paired it with some winter white jeans and a basic chambray top. I wanted to add a little chic factor to the outfit and these over the knee boots really did the trick.
 I love OTK boots because they look well with pretty much anything. These classic black ones? I will probably hold on to until the heel comes off because it's very hard for me to find OTK boots that actually fit all the way up my legs. When I found these stretchy ones I held on to them for dear life!

Btw, did you notice I switched up the lip color!?
