There are so many great things about living in the Bay Area and impromptu trips to wine country ranks high on my list of  reasons to love it here. I always find myself in Napa, but on the first weekend of the new year, I did something different and headed to Sonoma instead. I'll do a separate post later about my experience there, but for now let's talk about this Zara coat...

I was unsure about this coat. Don't get me wrong — I love it, but I wasn't sure that I loved it for me. I'm short and small a.k.a petite and I wasn't sure the oversized silhouette was good for my frame. But you know what? I said, it's a new year, let me try something different + this thing is extremely warm and it was rather chilly this day, so I went for it! What do you think of the coat?
