Tickling the Ivories

For the last few seasons, I’ve been obsessed with building a fabulous coat wardrobe reminiscent of the one Miranda Priestly had in The Devil Wears Prada.  However, fabulous (and affordable) plus-size coat options that work for me are few and far between.  So, I often shop both the straight and plus-size departments to up my chances of finding something absolutely fantastic.

A few months ago, I snagged this ivory topper during Nordstrom’s Half Yearly sale.  Not only does it fit perfectly, but it is surprisingly warm for a lightweight coat.  I paired it with this beautiful green dress from H&M that I’ve had for a while (see previous outfit post here) and this animal print bag that I’ve been obsessed with lately.

If you’re looking for fantastic pieces to add to your coat wardrobe, I suggest shopping at the end of the winter season (like now) because so many items will be on sale and you may find something amazing for a steal.  You can also check out my Pinterest board for more plus-size coat options.
