Happy Sunday to you all!
When I was home for Thanksgiving Break I worked at Aeropostale and couldn't help myself to buy a few things. It's funny because when I first started working there I didn't think it was going to be a problem to want to buy things from there (not my style), but since Aero has been going through their revolution I've found myself really liking a vast majority of the clothing. One piece in particular; this coat! My winter coat is about three years old and although there's nothing wrong with it, I don't feel like it's my style anymore or really even warm enough. I knew when I got a new winter coat I would want it to be red this time, and so it was fate that I found this one! I've really been attracted to the parka style jackets this season which is strange for me because they're not ultra feminine. This coat is perfect though and fleece lined with a big, nice fur hood to shield my face from the Kent wind (aka we are Chicago here). It also has these comfy thumb holes at the bottom of the sleeves that don't really have a purpose, but I'm one of those people who pulls my sleeves down like that anyways so it's ideal. I'm a very cheap person and the $130 price tag on this was way too steep, but it was 70% off and then I used my employee discount and I got it for $25! Couldn't pass it up.
My good friend Sky recently started a fashion, lifestyle, Christian blog which is amazing. I am constantly inspired by her faith journey and just her life. Sky is the type of person who lives with no regrets and just enjoys every moment of life. So proud of her and of her blog and I'd love if you all could check it out! Especially love the recent tutorial she did for a poinsettia crown. Too cute ♥
With much love, Lauren.
