Boulevard Tunic and Gathered Shoulders

gathered boulevard

I got this coat about a month ago and wore it on my trip to Cologne recently. It was the perfect light layering piece that made me look like I'm trying, despite my slouchy tees or whatever else I might have had on beneath it. And the slightly shiny woven fabric lets the rain roll off in a drizzle and cheaps a chilly wind at bay (plus it's on sale right now).

Granted that makes this awesome coat immediately too warm to wear in the southeast but I went ahead and did it earlier this month because I felt like this coat needed to be pranced around a bit before I save it up for fall and winter.

  3. That coat is fantastic. I have no need for another coat and wont wear it for awhile...yet, it is so tempting. I can see why you want a few extra wears before fall. It looks beautiful on you.

  4. Wow. I LOVE that dang coat.

    I find we have 2 seasons here...pile on huge horrible coats, or shorts. And although I own loads of leather jackets and lighter coats I find they are very hard to fit into wearing in our weather. I need to move back to the Canadian West coast where a light jacket is always in order.

    Orange is definately your colour.

  8. What a gorgeous coat! I can see why you'd want to get a few more wears out of it even though it's not really jacket weather anymore.

  13. The red coat is very chic! I love the whole look. I wish the weather here would allow for a jacket, but it is way too hot!

    1. Yeah, it's pretty much too hot for anything more than light sleeves nowadays. The coat will need to rain for fall after this.

  24. I have a coat from H&M that does the same effect.
    I was in my Hello Kitty pyjamas going to grab a quick breakfast in LES Ny and just put the coat over it and my friend could not hold a "Wao" back :) looked great in an instant. Not many pieces can do this.

    1. This coat has inspired me to look at other light coats - what an easy way to fake getting dressed!

  25. It's so hard finding cute rain wear, but that one is really cute on you...love all the red accessories with the graphic black and white dress!

    1. The coat is technically not rain wear, but one good thing about buying a coat made of completely synthetic mats - light rain repellent, hehe.

  31. Love that colour combination! The coat is fantastic. I think I own too many coats, living in the northeast, but now it's so humid I can't even imagine wearing one. But if you move back to this part of the world, you'd have all of spring and fall to wear coats. :)

  32. I very much liked the dress in April and I still do. And the awesome coat looks so good on it. Can you actually lose the coat? I mean button it?
