TREE TRIMMING + THE PERFECT WINTER COAT

The perfect winter coat

coat, sweater, sunnies, leggings

One of my most favorite days of the year is the day we find and trim our Christmas tree!  There is something so special about finding that perfect tree and bringing it home to decorate.  This year I wore the perfect winter coat to keep me warm…This year we took the dog and headed to a local tree farm.  It was a cold afternoon, and we were moving fast!  We picked what turned out to be our biggest tree to date which was both exciting and a bit…challenging!  We strapped it to the roof of the car and finally got it into the apartment and into the tree stand.  After much finagling and shifting, our tree was finally standing and we were ready to begin trimming!

We decorated the tree with all of our favorite ornaments that we have slowly curated over the years. We have ornaments from when we first started dating to our honeymoon to recent trips we’ve taken, all so special!  I always find it so much fun to relive the memories of the same ornaments you think you remember, but there’s always those few that pleasantly surprise you year after year!

I wore my brand new J.Crew Factory City Coat to the tree farm, which I think is the perfect winter coat. I cannot tell you how long I have been eyeing this coat and how much I love it!  I got it on major sale and plan to wear it all winter long.  I paired the coat with a pair of leggings, my go-to sweater, booties and some sunnies.  Quick note: they also sell a slightly more expensive version of the coat here at J.Crew.  To be honest, I think the Factory version is great quality and the perfect price tag.

If you’re still looking for the perfect coat, I also am loving this one, this one, this one and this one.  For something a little warmer, I also have had my eye on this, this and this.
