Coats make their fashionable, Carrie Bradshaw exit...

There's some things I tend to never get sick of, one being TV Shows or Movies that I love. Honestly, the ones that have touched my core will forever remain with me. I don't get tired of the characters or deciphering secret meanings in scenes nor do I wish to ever stop talking about them. Nope, nope- I tend to obsess over my favorite shows/movies and merely hope that I will meet someone who can have an entire conversation with me in quotes.

Such is Sex & the City. I admit, the last movie was what the f*ck were they thinking... sub-par, but I couldn't care less. I love the girls and I truly believe that it's fun to recognize the ways we dress like them.

Spring is coming! Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife and hide yo' jackets because soon they won't be approps! Image above of my girlfriends and me at a charity event on Feb. 16 downtown- cute jackets all around! I'm on the far right.Also, today at work, the sun shone through my window all day long and reminded me that Spring is JUST around the corner (even though Snow is supposed to hit us on Wednesday and you Midwest/Eastcoasters are basically living in the North Pole- but make no mistake, it's coming!) and I know this to be true because the Groundhog told me, duh. I am so excited to welcome warmer weather but at the same time, I'm getting sad to know that soon I'll be packing away my coats for their Summer hibernation. Bummer!

I love my variety of coats... they're easy to grab, go with so many different outfits and always take on a persona depending upon the day, the mindset and the accompanying pieces.

Here below, you'll find a few of my favorite jackets I'll be sad to kiss goodbye in the next month or so... and wouldn't you know, they seem to fit into the closets of some of my favorite girls.


Sometimes I can't help but love to dress like Samantha- the va-va-voom, the pure sexual girliness... oh it is a delight being a female. Thank you for the inspiration Madam Jones in my Forever 21 faux-fur white jacket that pairs perfectly with my LBD for a night on the town.


Few things are cuter than dressing like Charlotte, especially in Winter. I adore my button-happy jacket from Forever 21, which surprisingly- has held up pretty well for about 3 years. Great for coming and going from the office and even cuter to wear while spending a chilly afternoon meandering through town.Miranda

Linear lines for a linear, no bullsh*t girl. My Limited jacket is streamlined enough for an evening out to create a simple flow and formal and professional enough to pair with my most professional of outfits for the work day.


My Laundry by Shelli Segal jacket is just about my most elegant/quirky thing I own and cost a small fortune (black jacket) and it reminds me so much of Carrie. Also a perk- it's insanely warm.

Needless to say... I'll be sad to pack up my coats soon and will be sure to use them as much as possible before then!

What Sex & the City girl do you think has a swoonworthy coat?

Girl I love your SATC throwback to coats. I, for one, can't wait to lock those mothers up. I've had it!! But we're stuck in this odd limbo of you kinda need a coat, but you're not sure how heavy. Oh wait now you can take it off but you only have a t-shirt on. Oh wait it's 20 seconds later and you need a light jacket, but you've got a freaking heavy one so you're sweating land.

Shoot me now. Not really, but you know what I mean.

I do love a coat in the PNW though - now that is coat country. As evidenced here beautifully!!

Ummm...hello, your coat collection is incredibly covetable! I have So is the territory for living in SoCal, I suppose! :P

Okay, I go for Carrie...she definitely has the most incredible coats. And you...I ADORE your new header - it is perfection!! :)

Tina said...

Bah i love this post! lol so creative! Hmm... I gotta say I always found myself loving Charlotte's coats! But I definately own one of each too!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

LOL at "Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife and hide yo' jackets" - seriosuly made me chuckle out loud!! Haha Wish spring was coming for us soon here, but lately it seems not many signs of spring are showing here until May. Now that's a bummer! And having read your post, I realize that this is probably weird... I live in Russia, and even though I am in no Siberia it still gets cold here, yet I basically only own one winter coat (a few other things I have are not warm enough for winters here at all) and I don't even own winter shoes... What is wrong with me? lol In my head I totally live somewhere else, it seems!!

Oh I loved this post! I loved Samanthas best on you as it makes you ozze super glamour puss :)
I think I'm more miranda with coats. I'm so cold all the time I wear coats all through the summer so you can send yours up to me if you like ;o) *giggles* ƸӜƷ MLMBeautiful ƸӜƷ xxx

Ashleigh said...

Alison Kinsey said...

this post is fan-freaking-tastic Caitlin! i love when you get all creative like this ;) the Samantha coat is my favorite! something about a faux fur jacket just screams glam in my opinion!
and i agree, the 2nd movie...was just weird! i was surprised because i had thought it would be a lot better.

Sierra said...
