You can’t deny that Teddy Bear Coats are the must have for winter. Last year there was a particular H&M teddy bear coat that everyone wanted their hands on. This year it’s shifted slightly to the oh so Instagramable and coveted I.AM.GIA teddy bear coat. Either way, these coats are cozy, trendy, and can be worn in a multitude of ways. Sitting at my desk all day at work, I like wearing comfortable coats I can move in when our office is super cold in the mornings. These kind of coats have a lot of give and make it easy to be able to type and maneuver around. Only downside is that I sometimes get too comfortable that I feel like falling asleep haha.

It’s starting to feel a lot like winter. There’s been a major cold front streaming through Southern California and I’m finally ready for winter! My wardrobe however was lacking in a major piece, a nice black coat. After what seemed like an endless search for something sleek yet within my budget of under $60 I felt like I would never find exactly what I was looking for. Then I came across this teddy bear black coat at H&M. While it wasn’t the exact “sleek” looking coat I had envisioned I still loved the look and had to try it on. Low and behold it was PERFECT and kudos to me that day for wearing an outfit it looked cute with. After passing on the coat TWICE after trying to be good and save my money it finally went on sale for 50% off and I threw all excuses out the window not to buy it. Since then, I’ve worn it pretty much every day since its my coziest piece that seems to match pretty much anything I’m wearing.
I also got my newest pair of boots in the mail post all of my Black Friday shopping. I grabbed this pair from Simmi Shoes, the perfect spot for on trend pieces at a ridiculously great price point. Also although they are based over in Europe, their shipping was really fast and I even went the standard route during Black Friday! I have to say I’m going to be repping Simmi a lot more after having this amazing first experience. I decided to go with a khaki pair of square toe block heeled ankle boots. For awhile I had been sticking with classic black pairs of shoes since I seemed to only be drawn to those pairs in my closet, but recently after getting a little bored of my selection I’ve been branching out. I must say the khaki color really goes with a ton of my wardrobe pieces and the heel height is perfect for walking around all day in without feeling like my feet will fall off at the end of the day.
It always feels good to see all of my sale/Black Friday steals coming together in one look!
