That's a Green Coat!

If I had a nickel for every time someone said "That's a green coat!"  I would have about 25 cents.  Maybe 30.  I never know if they mean "wow, it's so cool that your coat is green!" or "You are a weirdo for wearing such a bright green coat!"  I just say "THANKS!"  and pretend they mean it is cool.

This outfit is inspired by this pin, but I don't have a gorgeous pink coat, so I went with another brightly colored coat.  Kate also put a spin on it by wearing her pink blazer.  It's a good reminder that when I see something I don't have, I probably have something pretty similar to make it work.

I actually really like the simplicity of the outfit without the coat, and then the coat adds a fun touch.  I just wish I had found my perfect gingham shirt!  J.Crew Factory is having 50% off in stores this weekend, so I might have to head to the outlet mall and see if they have this one.  I also have my eye on this one from Gap.  It's Friends and Family weekend, so it would be an extra 40% off.  The saga continues...

Anyway, back to my original point:  This is a green coat.  Next week is GREEN WEEK.  So gather up your grassy-hued items and put together an outfit to share!  Then be sure to check out my partners-in-crime:  Heather and Ashley.

Happy Weekend!  I hope it is spring wherever you live (unless you hate spring, in which case, I don't know if we can still be friends)!

Coat: Old Navy
Shirt, Sweater, Jeans:  Gap
Boots: Madden

  1. Is your coat green? Ha. Why do people ask such silly questions? When I wore my giraffe sweater, I had a couple of people ask me if there was a giraffe on my sweater. I was baffled at how to even respond to that. Anyway, I like your take on the outfit. Colorful coats are just the best.
    Also, did you see that if you were to order the gingham shirt online, it won't ship until July?! Ridiculous. If I were to do that, I would completely forget about it and be like "what is this?" when it arrived. Hope it's available in store for you!

  2. I love colored and patterned coats so I think it is perfect! Especially for this time of year. It's a great color on you, too!

  3. I really like this coat! Also, don't forget to link up your style swap post, I might have already decided I want to swap your look for next week ;)

  4. When I wore my green coat like this, a student continually referred to me as a leprechaun because I usually wore it with gold flats. I guess I can see the reasoning behind that comment....I guess.

    I was going to make Jeff take me to J.Crew Factory this weekend for the same reason! 50% off with gift card money left to spend? Don't mind if I do.

  5. Green is an underappreciated color. Many of its hues, like this one, are gorgeous. Great coat.

  6. your hair is so awesome and pretty! i love it! such a cute coat!

  7. :) it's cute and I love it with the boots. Happy St. Patricks day I linked up. Rachel xo

  8. I too need the perfect gingham shirt. Would love a Navy and a Red one. =) Have fun shopping!

  9. And I meant to say too that I love your Bright Green Coat. I think Bright Bold Coats are perfect for Winter, so it doesn't feel as dark, boring and dreary.

  10. Ooh, Andi! I love this outfit so much - one of my recent faves of yours! I really like how clean and simple it is - and the green coat makes it pop! :) I used to have a bright pink peacoat that people always commented on :)
