Sweet Pea

Got the cold weather blues? Stay nice and toasty with a warm and stylish peacoat! It seems as though the nasty weather has forced most fashion lovers to make the treacherous journey to the back of their closets to pull out their favorite winter gear. These past few days have been rather chilly so I had to swap my favorite pair of flats for some boots and my cardigan for a peacoat! The weather has been rather annoying lately. If it chooses to be this cold, at least reward us with some pretty snowflakes for all that rummaging we had to go through for puffy coats, scarves, and mittens.

Peacoats are definitely a winter essential because they are incredibly versatile. Not only do they look great during the day, they can look very dressy at night as well! Try incorporating two trends into one this winter by picking out a longer peacoat in a festive red shade!
