No matter how hard I try, I always end up with dark color coats- grey or black. I promised myself this time, that I’d try to get a bright color coat- I actually did once before-  a bright orange blazer/peacoat type jacket that I never want to wear because guess what…it’s oh so bright. So I knew I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something that I may very well be too color shy to rock on a regular basis. As some of you have pointed out to me in the past, something I actually didn’t quite realize, I love the color blue, royal or cobalt blue to be most precise. Surprisingly, I found a nice little option at Forever21. F21 is many things to many people- best place for disposable clothing and all but not necessarily the first place I’d think of for a coat. I was definitely pleasantly surprised by this one and if nothing else, I won’t feel so bad if I get sick of it much too soon. And then there were the shoes…. thanks CandyRoom.
