In order to keep my suitcase light, when I moved to France in August I didn’t bring a wool coat with me. As the weather started to change, I began my great coat hunt, determined to find a fabulous French creation. This was one of the first coats I saw and I was searching it was always in the back of my mind. I love it because the color is really unique and the the faux fur collar and silhouette makes it look really classy, in my humble opinion. So, even though it’s from H&M, it was my favorite coat by far and I bought it.
The hat is one of the last purchases I made before I moved back to the US. I had seen it at Galeries Lafayette a few months before, and like the coat, it was always in the back of my mind. I checked every once in a while to see if it went on sale, but it never did. I finally decided to make it my last splurge item, and I’m so glad I bought it. Even though I don’t wear it that much, it will always have great memories of my life in France.
