The Parade of Coats....

Yeah! I am so glad that it is now October!
The fall weather is about to begin I just know....bye bye to the warmth of summer and hello to the coolness and crispness of fall.
I just love this season, first probably because it is the season of my birth (November) and secondly, because my favorite clothing is long pants/jeans, sweaters, scarves, and jackets....oh the jackets.
I must say that I have one too many jackets! Like some women have shoes...I have jackets!!!

My current selection of jackets:

My black leather jacket is similar to this one but a little shorter. I am not totally fond of it as the leather is not the really soft kind so it does not get a lot of use. I do like to use it for more formal dressing or if I have important events at school.

Sorry for the poor quality is all that I could find on the internet (should have just taken my own photo)...this is a tan rain coat that I bought years ago at Ross or TJ Maxx (can't remember which one!)....I love this coat! It is comfy and cute. Mine is a little darker in color...more brown than khaki.

My beloved Pea Coat!!!!! Mine is actually a charcoal color rather than solid black. I actually want a black one this season. What I especially love about this coat is that it is hooded. So in the coldest part of the winter as well as the windy days of spring I use the hood quite a bit. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!!
*Sad fact: my beloved pea coat has a little hole in the back of the jacket...just there from excessive use...I need a new one this year but how will I find the perfect one???!!!!

This jacket is very similar to my green one. The only difference is that instead of having the hooks across the jacket they are around the waist to the back. The jacket has 5 buttons down the front. Almost exactly like this one though! I like this jacket for casual dress jeans and sweater days....

Gotta get ready for church now so I'll show you my Jacket Wish List in the next post.

Happy Sunday Bloggies!!!!

Happy Sunday!! I love the Pea coat. I need to get one of so cute! We are in the cool, crisp weather now. We have been dipping in the freezing temps, so I think we may be some snow early this year. I love Fall too!!

Hi Bethany!
Love the black pea coat, too. Can't wear those cute things in Florida. It was about 90 degrees today. I miss fall so much! We roasted marshmallows over a fire pit with friends the other night, but somehow it just doesn't seem right when you're getting eaten by mosquitos and sweating buckets! ;0)

I always appreciate your sweet comments on my blog, Bethany. Hope you are doing well... and get that new coat you're wanting!
