I would love to dub it "common sense", but it was truly "classic sense" that drove me to purchase this jacket as soon as I saw it.
That was back in August, before I decided to make my big life decision.
After I did, I debated returning it again and again.
My wardrobe was seriously lacking a camel coat as my last one succumbed to moths.
As silly as it might have seemed to add yet another wool topper to the closet, this one exemplified perfection in every way.
So I kept it.
Boy, am I glad I did!
It's simplicity and minimalist design paired in a timeless shade like camel will make this coat a wardrobe workhorse.
While it seemed smart to simply return it and get my money back, it is such a classic item that breaking it down into those cost per wears will bring this little number down to sheer pennies.
When I wore it over the weekend I knew I wanted the coat to be the focal point of my outfit.
Wearing all black underneath made perfect sense, but to add a black boot would have just seemed like overkill.
Suede boots in a delicious cognac color are all together another story.
This is one of those looks that I find myself most comfortable in.
Have you held onto something you should have/could have returned because you knew it was simply too good to part with?
