  1. LOVE this!! You look so elegant! My resolution is to make my maxi skirts work for the winter!

    • Thank you so much Catherine! I think you find that maxi skirts are amazing in the winter, they’re warm (especially when worn with leggings underneath), comfortable, and hide even the largest of snow boots!

  2. What a great non-resolution!!!! That’s so funny because I was just thinking this yesterday–I can’t let go of these pretty fancy dresses . . . even though I don’t get to use them much. I love this color on you Cait and the coat is so fab!

    • Haha thanks Robin, I’m glad I’m not the only one with fancy/dressy clothes waiting in the wings. I can’t let them go but I feel bad letting them collect dust!

  3. That coat is so lux…definitely don;t let that languish in the back of your closet…I love it!!

    • Thank you so much Randi! I’ve had this jacket for over three years and have worn it only a handful of times so I’m loving wearing it out.

  4. Nice Caitlin! I have a very similar faux leopard coat I’ve been trying to generate pairing ideas for – this definitely helps! also, go you! for spending a bunch o time in the cold outdoors – you’re heartier than I

    • Ooh Corey we should organize a leopard coat date/event! I really like the idea of wearing this jacket with casual basics, like jeans and a tee. It creates a great juxtapose.

  5. love the color of the skirt!

    • The color of this skirt was the first thing to catch my eye too Staci! It’s a great color because I’ll be able to wear it year round.

  6. I just got a faux fur leopard print coat!! I love it. I love the way you styled yours! It’s so glamorous!

    • Brooke I wear maxi skirts all year long and love them in winter because I can layer tights, leggings, even big boots underneath without looking or feeling bulky. I also like to wear maxi skirts over shorter dresses in the winter too!

  8. I like the jacket, and that teal color looks great on you.

    • Thanks Rebecca, nothing like a bit of leopard print to make you feel glamorous, even when your standing in a heap of snow.

  9. love this outfit!
