A Week In Outerwear: The fur Coat

Not sure if I've told the story behind this fur coat.  About two years ago a lady that my mother worked with was doing some spring cleaning and thought my mother could use a few coats.  In the bulk of those coats was this beautiful fur, I promptly claimed ownership!! This coat fit perfectly and was in pristine condition, there was no way I was passing it up.  I have only been able to wear it about twice before because the winters in North Carolina are fairly mild. Thanks to the cold front coming down on the east coast I finally have the chance to break this baby back out!

While it's fairly easy to dress a fur coat up (thrown over a beautiful formal dress) I wanted to see what it would look like over a super casual laid back look and I must say I am pleased with the outcome.  Don't be afraid to wear a classy dressy piece over a pair of boyfriend jeans.

  2. “Don't be afraid to wear a classy dressy piece over a pair of boyfriend jeans.” – That’s how I usually do it. Fur coats are quite a flexible fashion fix. It must be the fur that makes everything look stylish. You could be wearing a plain blouse and would still look fabulous with a trendy fur coat on. Shelley @ Estate Furs
