"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." --Audrey Hepburn

Winter Coats from j. Crew

I am officially home on winter break and getting excited to celebrate Christmas and enjoy some time off from school. That means that I am writing from the comfort of my own (very large!) bedroom at home, rather than a (cramped) college dorm room!

I recently bought a new winter coat from j. Crew, so I wanted to share with you some of the beautiful and classic coats from their selection. If you are planning on purchasing a coat from j. Crew, I highly recommend choosing one that can be customized by adding a thinsulate layer. When I visited the j. Crew store, I was disappointed to see that their coats were extremely thin and not suited to the New York cold. However, when I got home and went online, I discovered that several of the coats (including the two pictured below) come with the option of thinsulate, which provides an extra layer of warmth. I purchased the double-cloth lady day coat pictured below with thinsulate, and I can vouch for the fact that it really does add warmth without adding any bulkiness.
Double-cloth lady day coat, $298 (with thinsulate, $318)

Double-cloth sybil coat, $298 (with thinsulate, $318)

By the way, I absolutely love the dark poppy color pictured above. So perfect for the holidays, but very classic at the same time!
