The Long One


Don’t you just love when a piece finally arrives and it fits perfectly? That’s exactly what happened when I got this long plaid coat.

I’ve talked about how it’s hard to dress as a petite. Luckily, Topshop has come to the rescue as of late. No seriously, I’ve been loving everything they have to offer! I’m kind of loving all of the dresses – I’m trying to decide which ones I want to buy and bring on my London trip!

I’ve been dying for a longer coat for SO long, but never found something that was just “right”. When I was browsing the Topshop site a few weeks ago, I started looking at longer coats. I didn’t get my hopes up, but lately I’ve been really  I ended up finding this long plaid coat (which has since sold out unfortunately, but I love this option), and had to try it out!

The length is perfect for my 5’2 frame and I love the casual brushed pattern, but it’s definitely a dressy overcoat. I thought I still needed to add some length so I paired it with my go-to heels (duh) and this adorable sweater. I am obsessed with this tie sleeve detail! I’ve been seeing it so often, so obviously I wanted it for myself. I love how it’s a little on the shorter side for what I’m used to – I’m wearing a 2P for reference. If I was going for a more oversized look, I’d probably pick up this sweater.

I can’t wait to wear this long plaid coat with over the knee boots and a dress too! I feel like this longline coat is a great way to hit “refresh” on my winter wardrobe. This time of the year is always a drag to get dressed. But not when you can just throw this coat on and look chic! It’s easy enough to wear a ton of different pieces underneath, and something I know will be in my closet for years to come.

What are your thoughts on longer coats, shopping for petites and Topshop in general?
