Today I am back to my regular outfit postsThis olive wool military coat is an old favorite of mine.  I plucked it off the sale rack at the University Village J Crew back in college, and even on clearance it was an expensive purchase that I have made sure to wear and store with care.  I love the row of little buttons, the warmth, and the fitted shape that still looks feminine even with a sweater underneath.  For today's outfit, I paired this wool military coat with a simple cream sweater, my new black Zara skinnies with all kinds of cool zippers, and my olive pumps.

 A wool coat in a standout military style is a great way to bundle up for the cold but still look stylish for the seasonA traditional olive color is neutral and matches just about anything, but I also like a bright white with black piping or a pop of red.  Check out my save and splurge picks below:
