Loving: green coat (and shoes!)

I think me and this adorable wool coat were just meant to be.

I saw it in a Younkers ad and cut it out, thinking I would go check it out when I had some money. When Erin came up for my birthday we had a thrilling shopping spree, and I think the best moment was when she spotted me trying on this coat and from across the room and yelled something like “you have to buy that!”. You can’t tell from it on a hanger, but it’s fitted and shapely and has two hidden pockets (an essential for Iowa winters). The price tag said $260, but after a little wheeling and dealing involving my Younkers card, I think I paid $125. Nice!

And just yesterday, after I balanced my checkbook and realized I hadn’t done too much damage, I spotted these at Famous Footwear.

Could I resist?
