Having recently decided that my wardrobe could use a camel coat, I set out on a mission to find one. Plus, with an upcoming trip to New York, I wanted something substantial that would actually keep me warm. Knowing it would be a practical investment, I began my search with some higher-end retailers, but was disappointed with the selection. I quickly learned that in the fashion world, the end of October is considered “late in season” for coat shopping, so I began to accept that I might have to wait until next season to find what I was looking for. But as a last resource I decided to stop into Forever 21, and that’s when I spotted this one. I loved it more than the previous ones I had tried, and the same held true for the price tag. I was so excited with my find that I sent a photo to my mom from the dressing room. She immediately responded with a request that I pick up a second one for her, and she loves it just as much as I do. I wasn’t expecting to wear it before my trip, but I was able to make good use of it this weekend when visiting my boyfriend in San Francisco. The foggy mornings and brisk temperatures made it the perfect addition to layer over my lighter tee.
