Oh, it so much fun when trying a winter coat over cashmere sweater plus boots in 27C heat. Highly recommend!
So, a coat in question. A light color faux fur coat is on my list. It suppose to be a bit of statement piece, something more exciting than a puffer, not necessarily an everyday coat but still functional. In theory, this one fits the bill.

Rocky Faux fur coat in off white by Sandro.

Pros: I like the color (it was a gamble as it usually happens with online orders) and don’t mind texture. The style of it is exactly what I was looking for. All my light color sweaters work with the coat.

Cons: it sheds a little and the fluff will prevent me from wearing it with darker clothes. I should be more clear- it leaves a bit of a fluff, much like a fussy sweater would, where it touches a dark fabric. I have one pair light blue and a pair of beige jeans that I can wear (the beige jeans are new and are not hemmed yet). I haven’t tried it with white jeans.

Accessories- would have to carry this bag if I wear it to work, this is the only one that is big enough for my laptop. A light color smaller bag is on my list. Will consider light color boots but only if I keep the coat.

The main questions - does it overwhelm me? Does it look weird or just blah? Do you like it on me?

Update on the coat is down the tread.
