Last year I was obsessed with military style coats and purchased this navy blue Laundry by Shelli Segal coat. Sadly, I had only worn it a few times – it’s a bit heavy and requires colder weather. Part of me was thinking about selling it on ebay since I hadn’t shown much interest in wearing it. However, my mind quickly changed once I put it on this morning – I had forgotten how stunning it is.

It is fully lined, single breasted, with a shirt collar, flapped patch pockets, and skirted hem. A gorgeous and well made coat.

There are also gold buttons on the cuffs and the back is just as stunning as the front with the upper pleating.

My ombre hair color is really showing in these pictures – I am due for a refresh.

I just couldn’t resist saluting in this coat – basic training goes glam with naval details. Now that winter has officially arrived, I think I will definitely pull this out of the closet more often. After all, this coat originally retailed for $425 – I of course did not pay more than $130. Bargain shopping at it’s best!

I paired the coat with Roxanne 7forallmandkind jeans, Dolce and Vita Eve boots, a red Tano zipper hobo, Chloe sunglasses, a tart tee and cardigan underneath.
