October Blues

Well Hello, OCTOBER! Oh my god, can you even believe how fast September went by? I feel like July was just yesterday and now we have to worry about settling into Fall and trying to figure out what to wear to Halloween parties. It almost seems too soon because you know that after Halloween comes and goes, we will all be gearing up for Thanksgiving and Christmas and *hyperventilates* oh god, I have to stop thinking about this. Christmas gives me so much anxiety and I once again point the crooked finger to my string of shitty jobs in retail and customer service for this. I should just make an entire blog post about all of the good and bad things retail teaches you but first, I will leave you with my most terrifying short story... Retail during Black Friday. The End. 

About the post name... My best friend seems to think that this coat looks like Cookie Monster so badly, that he just went on and decided to name it and refer to it as just that. Also, my boyfriend calls the first pic my "muppet smile", so with these two things working against me, I'm just going to own it and combine the two to make one big muppet look and treat it as such. Where the cookies at??

About the coat... So I bought this fur coat on a whim one night after feeling like I deserved something luxurious for no special reason other than my Birthday is two months away. It's soo soft that I can't believe it's not real fur! I mean, this is real high quality stuff-stuff I would like to make bed sheets out of and sleep on naked every night because it's that soft. This coat is totally not something I would normally have laying around in my closet, but it was surprisingly easy to wear. I will admit, it gave off some Big Pimpin' vibes and I could totally imagine myself in the background of a Jay-Z music video, so I kept the rest of the outfit fairly simple. I paired this lush little number with sleek leather leggings (kind of my go-to) and a striped top to break up the texture with some clean lines. Also, a heeled mule was the only way to go with these to prevent me from looking like a squatty fuzzy troll ;) Just kidding, I just like looking tall! 
What do you guys think about this teal fur coat? Is this something you would wear and keep in your closet? Also, what would YOU pair it with? Please let me know in the comments below! I look forward to hearing from you :) Also, have an AMAZING start to your October! Have a Pumpkin Spice latte for me!

    1. If only you were closer, you KNOW I would make you take 3,000 pictures of me bouncing around in this coat because you hated it so much. Is this why you didn't move with us? Because you sensed that I would buy this in the near future with your psychic twin powers? I'd make you bake cookies for me as props Mwahahahaaa

    1. Thank you SO MUCH Emily! That is truly the sweetest compliment ever! I bought this thing without any clue on what to style it with so it was a surprise until the very last minute! Also, I gave up trying to write "proper" ages ago haha but i'm so happy you appreciate my style! Thank you so much for checking out my blog! It means so much to me :)

    1. SAME HERE! I bought this when it was cooler out, then it immediately became a heat wave so we have to wait a week or two to even carry this thing around. Stay cool out there! Fingers crossed that we get the Fall weather that we deserve ASAP :)
