Cozy Sweater Coats

I have found a new love this year and it is the Sweater Coat.  This particular one from Anthropologie is warm, cozy and even has pockets.  But it almost was the one that got away.

In all of these pictures, I have the Strathmore sweater by Sparrow paired with Target's Mossimo Skinny jeans.  The only difference is the heel height of my older leopard shoes with the first pair being Etienne Aigner pumps.  I bought these from Ross years ago.      
It can be disappointing when you place an order with Anthropologie, only to have it cancelled after a few days.  This is the downside of waiting for deep discounts so I was disappointed when this sweater order got cancelled.  I was lucky with all of my sale items this winter and thanks to a pop back, I was able to capture this item.

I prefer the lower heels, like this Mossimo pair from Target.  I bought this yellow Anthropologie Ansley Metallic Infinity scarf during this past winter sale as well and it matches great with the sweater.    
Being in a rush on this particular cold morning, I decided on my Nine West flats and my hair pulled back as usual.     
I really like the look of pointed toe shoes with jeans and the leopard was a fun color scheme with the yellow.
Although these shoes are old, leopard shoes are everywhere.
Payless has these cute Jaclyn pumps.   I bought them in the red plaid.
Nine West has a lot, including one called the Martina that also comes in many great colors and prints.    

Keeping with the leopard theme, I decided to put Cranky Leo on my blog. 
Cranky Leo does not belong to us but because his owners have a dog, he spends more time in our yard.  He has a mean streak and tends to swat if anyone walks too close to him.  It doesn't matter that
I give him the leftover wet food my cats don't finish.  He still bats at me if I walk too quickly past.
I was lucky he didn't ruin my pair of leggings a few weeks back when I felt a claw and material being pulled as I rushed past.


  1. That is one grumpy cat! LOL

    Sweater coats are great aren't they? I got one from Anthro recently and just love it.


    1. I have never even given sweater coats a second look until this year. It was the yellow color at first and then I discovered how warm and comfortable they are. I would love to see your Anthro sweater. I have been bad about visiting people's sights lately, so whether you have put it on your blog or have yet to do so, I'm sure I will get to see it soon.
      Thanks for stopping by,

  2. Okay so that yellow is gorgeous! I also love the leopard flats paired with the sweater and jeans. Really great outfit!
    And that Cranky Leo is such a character. We have a cranky tabby (black and white) too but when he swipes he keeps his claws in thank goodness. The only person he likes is Freddy. Cats have such different personalities!

    1. Thank you for the sweet compliment.
      Yes, it is interesting to see the cats personalities and they seem to take on the owners characteristics sometimes. I'm like Nina, more uptight and an introvert and Coraline, the fluffy one is outgoing, social but can get a little feisty like my daughter. I don't get Leo and he would be a good cat for Jackson Galaxy to visit.
      Have a great Monday,
