It’s hard to believe that it is March & it’s still so cold in New York! We even had a snow day this past week, so I got an extra day to catchup on a lot of my to do lists. Though I’m still in such a rut and so ready for spring. I’ve been on pinterest and getting some warmer weather inspiration. Anything from home decor, home styling, to outfits and healthy smoothies. In the meantime, it’s still coats and layers when I head outside. Anyone who knows me, I’m always cold and I prefer it to be about 74 indoors!

During this in between season I’ve been trying to dress up even casual looks any way I can. I actually swiped this leopard coat from my mom when I was back home visiting last month. This coat is the perfect touch to dress up any outfit and since I’m usually wear darker clothing most of winter or neutrals it goes with a lot.

I also found a ton of warm winter coats on sale for end of the season so sharing those in this post as well. I usually keep a waterfall coat in my closet, a formal one with fur, my winter puffer coat, leather jacket, and trench coat. Each one brings something different to whatever outfit I’m wearing. Living in New York which has more than half the year sadly spent in coats I tend to find pieces I love and don’t mind wearing over and over. I’ve also been pairing these Steve Madden boots with so many outfits! I love the higher tight ankle so they work with leggings and for a taller heel they’re surprisingly comfortable and super easy to walk in. They’ve been going on sale and always sell out fairly quick. They come in a variety of colors. I also weather proofed them since they’re suede. I’ve been tempted to order them in another color like the grey or rust suede and save them for next fall. They go with skirts and dresses well too!

Scroll down to see my top 6 coats I believe every gal needs in her closet. Many of which are on sale for end of season so thought it’d be a perfect time to share as you start eyeing things for spring.

Wishing you all a happy week and brighter evenings now that daylights savings is in full swing!

Leather Jacket

This faux leather jacket in on major sale and so is this style. I love my butter soft Michael Kors one, I’ve had it for years and it’s edgy enough and works over dresses, t shirts, or paired with a tight tissue turtle neck at the moment. It’s definitely worth finding a style you love and will have for years if you take good care of it.

Suede Moto Jacket

I’ve been more into my suede coat and wore it a ton this fall and throughout winter. I opted for a deep olive color since so many of my others are in neutrals. It’s also currently 40% off and comes in a variety of shades. Also love this drape front style for spring!

Waterfall Coat

I absolutely love this coat’s color because it could easily transition into spring. With being 5’10” I usually go for longer coats. This version is at a good price point and works for fall into winter.

Wrap Coat with Fur

This coat is one of the higher end pieces I keep in my closet and it’s perfect for nights out in the city where I get a little more dressed up. I’m sharing this faux fur version because I like the color of the coat. I went for a dark charcoal since I wear mostly black shoes.

Puffer Coat

This one is a bit more of a splurge even on sale, but I have had my winter coat that’s a bit similar for over 4 years now and I have even had it repaired a few times because I just can’t give it up. It’s that good! I love a longer coat to keep me warm all winter, long enough to my knees.

Fur Wrap Coat

I usually wear a wrap coat when we go out to a special occasion. The fur is super soft and warm and the length is just right for colder weather. Then I found this color block option and woah, so adorable and different! The length is perfect and it’s more than 50% off!

Trench Coat

There’s so many great options for spring and I have two different versions, both of which are neutral and traditional. One is a little more heavy and the other is something to throw on in cooler spring mornings. This Something Navy one is light and feminine.

Softest Eyelash Cardigan

This eyelash long cardigan sweater is thick, warm, and so so soft ! I couldn't resist the contrast of the black and white with the plush texture. The best part is I found it at 60 % off! It was the perfect layer to wear walking around the city over the weekend while we had family in town for a wedding.

We took advantage of the sunny weather and played tourist for the day. I couldn't believe how developed and changed the water front is from Brookfield Place to Battery Park downtown.

Lightweight Fall Look

I recently adventured upstate to visit family for a quick weekend trip and take in all the fall foliage and festivities that I definitely don’t get enough of in the city. My favorite is taking the train and seeing all of the leaves changing color along the way.  Since it was unseasonably warmer than usual it was perfect for walking around some of my favorite sites and enjoying Buffalo wings over some football! I realize how I totally miss being a kid going on trips to the pumpkin patch and walking through corn mazes fearful of being lost forever! 

This sweater is super soft and not too heavy for the transition to fall and could easily be layered because of the flutter sleeve detailing. Oatmeal is a favorite neutral, and I got it 40% off!

My denim is old but so comfy, linking similar finds at great price points because I never invest in light denim, since I usually wear darker washes from fall into winter. Credit for the pop of orange goes to my nana for letting me borrow her purse. I think it’s Michael Kors and it is a great size. My grandparents decorate so perfect for the fall and their porch was really photo worthy, I just love it! Every year they have the cutest Halloween decorations inside and out.
