With the arrival of fall temps in NC I have been re-discovering my “winter” wardrobe. This is always a fun time of year where I get to shop my closet and wear things that I had to part with for the summer. It’s always like a treasure hunt where I re-discover so many riches that were hidden.
I also sometimes discover that my tastes have changed at some point between the start of the sweltering heat and now. This happened when I pulled out the yellow wool pea coat I purchased last year. For some reason when I put it on it just felt wrong. Too stiff, scratchy and ill fitting I wonder what made me think this was a good decision 12 months ago.
After some pondering I decided that since I purchased the jacket on sale last year, I was going to allow myself to splurge on a new winter coat this year. Last year’s jacket was not a huge investment piece so that “I feel guilty getting rid of a perfectly good coat just because I don’t like it as much as I used to” feeling can kiss it.

OF COURSE this fantastic Just Female Asos Jacket is no longer available in Gray (curse you fashion Gods!)
