winter pastels

| Coat: H&M | Sweater: H&M | Pants: Old Navy | Heels: Target |

This year a pink pastel coat was at the top of my wish list so when this one went on sale at H&M and they had free shipping so there was no question. I had too and I was so glad I did! I love this coat and it is a lot more versatile than I thought. I can wear it with winter whites, navy blue, burgundy, the list goes on! It's hard for me to feel inspired during the winter so when I find colors that pair well together like pink and burgundy I absolutely love it! For this particular look I went for a winter pastel look with a pop of color. These burgundy cords are so comfortable and I love the bold color. Definitely a fall/winter fav!
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday! Just think a 3 day work week and then lots of yummy turkey and family time! Definitely something to look forward too!

I wasn't always a fan of the midi length dress but recently I think it's one of the most flattering lengths! I like my midi dresses to be just a little below the knee and it seems to show off just the right amount of leg and in just the right way. I love this dress and the cute print of it, and with the perfect length it has been one of my go to dresses come Sunday. you ladies love the midi length??

I wore this outfit to church last Sunday and made sure to throw on a jacket because it was chilly! It's a pretty simple outfit but sometimes it's nice to have a no fuss outfit. Being in the blogging world I feel like I have to have a million bracelets, a necklace, a clutch, a scarf, lipstick, etc., etc...but nine times out of ten I don't feel like piling all of that stuff on. So here's to a really simple, real outfit!
