Styling a Checkered Coat

Coat: Zara (last season, similar here), Turtleneck: J. Crew, Jeans: American Eagle, Bootie: Sam Edelman (old, similar here), Backpack: Rebecca Minkoff
Happy Monday loves! Hope you had a great weekend. Ours was super relaxing and fun! Steven and I went for dinner and to see the new Star Wars movie on Saturday night then Sunday I grabbed coffee with one of my good friends Allison. Steven is a HUGE Star Wars fan so he was way more critical about the movie than I was. He didn't really like it but honestly I loved it haha! But I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan to begin with. If any of y'all saw it I would love to know what you thought!

I have to say this coat was one of my best purchases from last year because it's super on trend for this season. I have gotten a TON of use out of it now that the temperature has dropped and the thing I love about it most is the oversized style of it. It's the perfect size to layer over another jacket or heavy knits. Even though it's no longer sold, the one I linked to from this season is GORGEOUS and I'm honestly tempted to buy it too!

  1. Loving that coat!! You look so cute! We aren't really Star Wars fans so I don't think we'll be going to see it but there are several other movies coming out over Christmas that I really want to see! The new Jumanji is one of them!!

  2. Love the coat and so chic in those high waisted jeans! Happy festive Monday gorgeous!

  3. I love how oversized this coat is!! And the check print is so perfect too. I'm not a Star Wars fan at all, and neither is the Hubby - so we get to skip it :) Happy Monday!


  4. Oh I love your coat and the way you styled it!
    Nice pics too ;)
    Have a good week!

  5. This is such a classic pattern for a coat! I love it with the burgundy top and your heels! We wanted to see the Star Wars movie, but thought about it too late and the tickets were sold out!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. I love this jacket! And extra points that you can layer sweaters and jackets under it. That is so important when it's cold! Sounds like you guys had a great weekend!

  10. What a gorgeous coat, girlie! I love the chic and classic print and color combination, as well as how it looks paired with that terracotta color. My mom say the movie over the weekend, too, and she seemed to like it as well, though she too isn't a Star War fan. I've never even watched any of the movies before, gasp, haha! I'm so curious though, since it's such a cult favorite. Anyway, thanks for sharing and I hope you have the best week ahead, beauty!

  15. Patterned coats are basically a staple! I have a black and white houndstooth that I love, and this checker one is great, also. And I always pair red lipstick with my coat, too!

  16. Zara always comes out with some killer statement coats- this one is gorgeous!

  17. This coat is everything! And I need it in my closet! Great styling, too.


  18. What a good coat!


  19. This coat really can't go out of style. Love the you paired it with solid color on top and distressed denim pants at the bottom. The black heeled boots adds a simple, yet fab touch too.
