Classic Glen Plaid Coat


I’m partnering with Ann Taylor again today to share some of my recent favorites.  You may recognize this coat from the list of things I bought on Cyber Monday.  It’s been on constant rotation since I brought it out of the box—both in and out of the office—and I’m happy to report it’s on sale again today!  That classic black and white glen plaid makes it both a statement piece and a closet staple, amping up anything and everything from ripped jeans to a little black dress.  Today you can see I had fun pairing it with this pencil skirt in a coordinating print and throwing on these classic red pumps.


These red pumps are super fun to wear, especially during the holidays, but will be on constant rotation all-year-round.  They’re a recent Ann Taylor score as well, and are actually the first time I’ve tried their “Mila” pumps.  I’m completely floored (pun intended?) by the silhouette and fit—not a blister in sight after a long day, and the line and shape are suggestive of a much higher price point.  I just went back to snag them in navy too.


These pictures were snapped en route to evening drinks where my black cold-shoulder knit served as the perfect day-to-night piece.  It offered the perfect crew neck during the day under my blazer, which was ditched after meetings before hitting our favorite watering hole with friends.  It comes in a few other beautiful colors as well, so if you’re looking for that perfect desk-to-drinks transitional piece, stock up today while they’re on major sale!

    Plaid is such a great pattern. It reminds me of winter, although we see it all the time, and it has such a professional look. I love the houndstooth pencil skirt with it. Would never had thought it would look so well together.

  3. I love that plaid coat. And I need to add those heels to my arsenal. Any footwear that is comfy and stylish is a win in my book!
