“You can never be over dressed or over educated.”
All winter I have been seeing cute teddy bear coats on all my favorite bloggers! I knew it was a style I wanted to try- I love how bold and yet cozy the piece is. However, I kept removing them from my shopping carts! A couple of weeks ago I was cleaning out a closet when lo and behold this teddy bear coat appeared. In the midst of all my moving between last winter and this winter I totally forgot I owned one!
Moral of this story: always shop your own closet first.
This fun layering look is actually a happy accident! I injured my knee while skiing in December, despite being off crutches it’s still very very swollen. When put on this gorgeous lacy dress only to be dismayed when one knee was twice the size of the other. I really didn’t want to ask Anni to photoshop my knee…. how ridiculous would that be? Instead I grabbed this leather pencil skirt to cover my knee and add a fun midi layer! I love the leather with the lace and teddy bear coat so much!
Major shout out to my gorgeous photographer Anni of Anni Powell Photography.
If you EVER are in the Seattle area and have photography need I can’t recommend this babe enough.
Her style is so light and airy. The best part? She totally put you at ease and make you smile the whole time!
Hope you are having a wonderful week beauty!
That’s the best teddy bear coat!! It look so comfortable and I love your outfit too!.
Not sure which one I love more… the dress or the gorgeous coat! I love them paired together! That burgundy color is amazing on you!

I so love everything about this look! How creative are you to create a layered dress look! I seriously thought it was one dress and not a lace dress and a leather skirt. Also, I am totally loving the juxtaposition of all three textures – teddy bear, lace and leather!
I got a teddy coat this season too and LOOOOOVE mine!
This is such a cute coat! And that burgundy lace is so stunning!
that dress is gorgeous, I mean I love that teddy coat – but that dress!
Loving your style! You are so chic. Would you like to follow for follow on Bloglovin? 🙂
Stunning look ! 🙂
What makes me adore this look that much more, is the creativity behind it! I love how you didn’t let your accident pull back on your style game- speaking of which I hope your knee is doing much better now. Happy FriYay! ( :
Thank you so much!!! It’s fun how fashion can change based on your life. Ugh. It’s getting there but it’s a long journey ahead yet! Have a great weekend love.
I love it! I have actually been looking for a teddy bear coat but don’t know what color or which one.

Black was definitely best for me because it matches the majority of my wardrobe. I love the fun colored ones too and the classic camel! Go with which one makes you feel warm and happy inside when you’re wearing it. Hugs!
I just love that coat on you! Such a cute outfit too.
Thank you gorgeous!

Teddy bear coats make winter coats way more fun! I have a faux fur leopard teddy-like coat and I feel so sassy when I wear it!
That sounds amazing!!! I need a faux leopard coat next- I should probably check my closet first!
Omg I want that coat so badly.
Check out the ones I linked! Amazing prices for the same coat!
This coat looks like a bear hug– so warm and cozy! Loving the pretty dress <3

Definitely cozy! It’s not as warm as I thought it would be though…..
I have so many colors in the teddy bear coats. One I don’t have is a black one. Yours is adorable!
