The Oversized Coat.

With some crazy snowstorms this year and a whole lotta blah weather in between, I'm thinking we should just skip January, February and March and go right into spring! Since I can't really do much skiing this year, with the new babe and all, the only positive thing about this crummy winter weather is getting to hide my postpartum squashy belly with oversized clothing and lots of layers. Ha!

Enter: my new favourite coat!

I was super excited when I heard that Mansur Gavriel was launching coats as well as a beautiful collection of knits this season. I've been a fan of their handbags for a while and am still totally smitten with the red lipstick lined black leather bucket bag Dennis got me last Christmas. 

I had been eyeing their oversized wool coat since they launched their Ready to Wear collection this past fall and when I saw that it had gone on sale on Boxing Day I couldn't resist!

Menswear inspired, this oversized coat takes it's cue from boyfriend jeans with it's boxy silhouette, structured yet slouchy lines, giant pockets and notched lapels. Personally, I love wearing oversized clothes, especially outerwear, and being a tall girl I also love the fact that this coat is long!

I LOVE this coat. And it's designed to go with absolutely everything. Easy, elegant and made from the finest Italian fabrics, this coat sets my heart aflutter in a major way. It completely transforms any outfit, remaining functional and ideal for cozing up during those winter days. This chic and cozy cover-up would also be perfect for those looking to upgrade their airport ensemble. This coat is pretty much sold out, but I've linked some super similar ones below (and most of them are on sale!!!).
