Hi you guys! I’ve been arming myself with this cozy teddy bear coat lately to fight off the chill. I get so bored of wearing the standard issue type of winter coat. Although I love puffer coats and some of the more typical winter styles, every so often I like to rotate in a fuzzy coat with a warm sweater. In Seattle I can certainly get away with this lighter version of cozy given the more moderate temps here.
I get asked so often by friends and followers for tips on how to wear the oversize coat without looking like a truck. Believe me, as my body is growing with pregnancy the last thing I need is to wear is an oversize coat that makes me look ten times larger. First things first with oversize coats is I look for the fit and structure. Even though this teddy bear coat is oversized, the long length extending below my knees adds great dimension. I really enjoy wearing long-line outerwear to elongate my body like this one. That helps with proportions. I’ve also paired this look with fitted leggings and slender ankle booties to balance out the proportions.
Finishing off my outfit with the houndstooth baker boy hat. I find hats to be a challenging accessory to pull off, especially this style. What I do love about hats though is the bold statement they make. For that reason, hats are a mainstay of fashion accessories in my closet.
Moving on from this outfit, I’m so excited for next week! It’s going to be a big week when it comes to the baby department. To start off the week, my hubs and I are doing a gender announcement for you guys. Right here early next week, we will be revealing the gender of baby Kung! Any guesses? Boy or girl? We are thrilled to share this with you, so be sure to check back here next week for this. Additionally, we are traveling back home later in the week to be with friends and family, and my sister is hosting a baby shower for us. She has shared a few little details with me, but most of it is a surprise and I’m just over the moon. I will definitely share photos with you guys from our baby shower afterwards.
Thank you so much for reading and I wish all of you a wonderful weekend! Hugs!
