Happy Friday! The day is finally here, I have been so excited to share this post with you! Today marks the first installment of a monthly series that I’m doing with my blogger friend Kathrine of Kathrine Eldridge. Kathrine and I met at a Simply Stylist conference in Chicago this past August. I have had the best time going to all of these blogger events and making new friends! If you’re a blogger and you ever get a chance to attend one, you should definitely take it. It’s such a great opportunity to learn and network and more importantly make new friends!

Ok, so on to today’s post. Since inevitably the temperatures will drop, they already have here, Kathrine and I wanted to show you how to style a coat two different ways. The robe coat is making a comeback this season and is one of the easiest coats, in my opinion, to wear. So what’s a robe coat you ask? Well it’s pretty much just like your favorite robe that you wear around the house on Saturdays and Sundays with your slippers, only this one can be/should be worn outside of the house! 😉

While we both styled our coats with a monochromatic ensemble (not planned!) Kathrine styled her coat with a little bit of a more casual look with her pants and cute booties and mine is styled with over the knee boots and pops of orange and leopard. Check out her awesome blog for more pictures of her style and her outfit details.

Can we just talk about this coat for a minute? Unfortunately I bought it about 6 years ago when I worked at Mark Shale in Chicago, so I tried to link a couple that were similar to it. I just love the faux fur on the hood and the hood…I love that it even has a hood! My ears always get so cold so having this baby is so handy! How would you style your coat? What outerwear trends are you loving right now! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

As always, thanks for reading!
