Have you ever wanted something so badly that you began to see it everywhere? Yeah, well that’s exactly what happened to me! Literally every time I turned my head or scrolled down my Instagram feed I saw someone in a beautiful shearling coat. I’ve been on the hunt for a new one for some time, so when I kept seeing them over and over I assumed it was the law of attraction fairy subconsciously showing me what my next purchase would be. That is what lead me to this beautiful jacket you guys are seeing. Now before I get into the deets of this jacket, let’s rewind a little bit. Sometime in December of last year I purchased a shearling coat. It wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, but the color was perfect and someone was selling it brand new for a great deal so I went ahead and purchased it. Although I thought I loved the coat, it sat in my closet for a few weeks before I actually took it out for a spin (sign #1 that I didn’t love it). I finally pulled it out of hibernation and instantly realized the coat was not for me. The main issue with it was the cut (sign # 2); it just wasn’t flattering on my petite shape and to me, fit is everything. On top of that, one of my best friends told me that the coat looked cheap and I absolutely hate cheap LOOKING clothing (not to be confused with cheap, quality clothing.. you guys know I love a deal). For me that was sign #3 and the last sign I needed to confirm that I had to get rid of it. I sold it immediately and went back on the hunt for the perfect shearling coat; no settling this time!Here we are exactly one year later and I’ve finally found the shearling coat of my dreams, well jacket in this case. In my mind, my dream shearling outerwear piece had to make a statement, but also be something I could continuously pull out every fall season. Basically one that wasn’t trendy. Also, I definitely didn’t want it to be a piece that every fashionista owned. Just when I was about to give up, I spotted this gorgeous jacket while randomly browsing on & Other Stories’ website. I instantly knew it was the one. The two toned green for sure makes a statement and is different than any other shearling coat I’ve seen. Also, it’s cropped which definitely flatters my shape, or any shape for that matter. This coat fits the bill perfectly and I’m so much more satisfied with my purchase this time around. Moral of the story is don’t settle, even if it’s for something as minor as a coat lol. Definitely well worth the wait!
