I had been saving this outfit combination for an event where we would be outside and the coat would be worn the entire time.
I got the inspiration of adding a silky red scarf from this tiny inset photo of SJP in a magazine:
I truly love this coat. I bought it 8-9 years ago from Bebe full price cause I was in love with it. At the time I traveled frequently to New York (and also Boston and Chicago) for my job so it wasn't that silly of a purchase. It is the type of coat you put on and feel like a million bucks. And now this year this is totally in style.
These platforms looked killer. But of course I couldn't wear them in reality for what we were doing. I wish I could though. Cause Uggs sure did not give this effect!
Underneath the coat I just wore a simple black t-neck to keep things simple!
The kids were picking up leaves and throwing them over me like confetti while I was taking these photos!

We stayed home this morning since my son was not feeling great and I had ton of stuff to do from laundry to cooking to gift wrapping and just taking it easy.
After naps we had a very early dinner and met our friends at Krispy Kreme's. 6 families to be exact with 12 kids! We drove to the local neighborhood where all the houses go all out with holiday lights. Kids on a high from the donut sugar rush had a blast running with their friends.
Except my son started feeling sick after 30 minutes and rode in my friend's stroller for the rest of the night.
They were fascinated with these tiny snowmen that sang on the ground of someone's yard!
My little sick baby!
Mine are in the Paul Frank hats!
Here is our group of kids!
