I love outwear. For a girl who grew up in Southern California nearly her whole life, it’s kind of ironic.
I looked in my closet the other day. Considering that I can only wear sweaters 2-3 months out of the year, I sure do have a lot. I have just as many of them as I do short sleeved shirts. Fall seems to come right around winter and then it’s spring come early March. So, I’ve decided that I must love this time of year because it’s such a novelty. Therefore, I must go all out and fully commit to the limited days of “not sweating in every day life” that I have.
Enter this cozy faux fur jacket. You just want to reach through the screen and hug me, right? I could easily spend hundreds of dollars on outwear that I’ll only wear once a season. So, I really spend a good chunk of time finding affordable pieces that I won’t feel bad about buying.
One of my favorite brands for affordable sweaters and outwear is BB Dakota. This isn’t a sponsored post; but if you read this post you’ll know that I’m trying to be better about sharing affordable finds since I often splurge on shoes and bags. BB Dakota is always one of the first brands I search when I want a new coat because I won’t spend gobs of money on whatever it is that may catch my eye. This cozy faux fur jacket is $135, and considering the price tag on lots of other styles out there, it’s relatively cheap. (If I had a million dollars or if I lived in somewhere that got truly cold, I would get this pink fur gem. Hopefully there’s someone out there reading this who buys it so I can live through them.)

I felt too cool for school in this outfit. I love it. Apparently a long furry coat will do that to you. As a size reference, I’m in a small and there’s some extra room. I could’ve probably sized down to get it a little closer to my body but since I travel to NYC often I wanted some room to layer over sweaters. The faux fur is a bit of a statement, so I kept everything else super low-key with these destructed jeans and these easy white sneakers.
If a faux fur jacket isn’t your thing but you still want some outwear that’s a little extra, check out this post featuring a super cozy shearling-lined jacket. It’s a great way to update a wardrobe staple but it’s not as bold as this. 😉
