outerwear-ability

irina lakicevic irina lakicevicIMG_5115Now that fall is here it means winter is just around the corner.  I’ve been on the hunt for a new coat to update my beloved classic H&M one that I’ve had for a bazillion years.  Between lost buttons, rips in the lining and major pilling,  it’s time for a refresher.  Since it was worn it to death, I can justify making the investment into one I’ve been coveting with intentions of endless wearability.  Outerwear is one of those items worth spending a few extra bucks on because you want it to go the distance.  I keep revisiting the By Malene Birger cocoon style shown above on Irina Lakicevic from fashion blog A Portable Package.  Irina wears it in pink which I’m inspired by despite my aversion to color, but I’ll go for black (better for the budget) since it’s versatile and has longevity.  Besides, I can always pop in the trending color pink like such…
