Well…winter has finally arrived here in Alabama which means my coats are getting a work out. And I know it is just January so I need to settle down and know this is just how it is going to be but I need to spice my coat up.
In Alabama I really don’t have a need for a lot of coats so my black coat is my go to coat and while it is truly beautiful I like to spice it up. I can change it up with scarves which I have done with this one and this one, but recently I needed a little sparkle. Plus with Mardi Gras being so early this year, there is a good chance I’ll be wearing a coat over my Spring dress.
What did I come up with? The brooch. I love these brooches from Bauble Bar and for less than $50.00 there is no guilt involved in buying a couple of sets.
A couple of ideas. First either buy a really big brooch that will make a statement or buy several and cluster them together. Second, I used to think that one shouldn’t mix brooches with their necklaces but I’ve changed that thought and I think it is fine to do both but remember moderation is key. Finally, brooches aren’t just for coats or blazers, as I’ve done above, add brooches to your sweater, your purse, a belt. The options are limitless but I think you’ll find that this is just the ticket. Below you’ll find brooches that can be found on “our Shop page”. Most are $50.00 and below.
