I’ve been seeing these coats everywhere lately and they look SO cozy! With the Seattle weather starting to border on freezing, a coat like this is perfect for our climate right about now. So, this week I started my quest to find a teddy bear coat. I tried on a few at Urban Outfitters and Free People, but neither were quite the right one I was looking for. I wanted a cocoon shape, but not something that would be too overpowering for my frame (also, I needed one that wasn’t a million dollars). I was hunting around at Nordstrom earlier in the week and spotted this Topshop teddy coat, and it was love at first sight!
Just look how cozy this is!!! It’s like a chic blanket of warmth!
I’m usually a size 4 in Topshop, but this time I sized down because the coat was so oversized. The sleeves were a tiny bit shorter for my liking, but overall the shape was less bulky in the size 2 so I stuck with it. It’s a beautiful off-white color that can be styled with pretty much anything. I especially love it with high waisted jeans, booties and layered over a sweater.
This particular day, I ran around Pioneer Square having lunch and stopping in a few shops and galleries. I’m so glad I purchased these adorable pink furry converse kicks. I’ve been wearing them a ton lately, and they’re a great alternative to heeled boots, which are what I normally wear. And the fur is so much fun! They also come in gray fur, if you want something more neutral.
I can’t wait to wear this coat around all winter long! I know it’s going to be my go-to outerwear choice come December/January. It’s such a great color and it’s definitely one of the warmest coats I’ve ever purchased. I highly recommend it! Check out where to get everything I’m wearing below!
