With this cold weather soon approaching, I just had to have this gorgeous Alyssum Coat! Being from New York, I have always been accustomed to having a predominantly black wardrobe, but when I saw that we had this beautiful Italian Red, Green and Grey Chunk Wool Knit, I just had to use this fabric.

Brittany just looked absolutely flawless in this coat, so I decided to mirror the luscious chunky knit that she used in her Alyssum Coat. This cozy, durable knit was surprisingly easy to work with and allowed for a modestly structured drape with a timelessly textured hand. The only thing that takes a little getting used to is the weight of this fabric, however, the heaviness of this knit makes you feel like you are wearing the most fashionable Snuggy ever and I LOVE it!
When I finished this coat, at first I thought it might be too big and too long. Being a human of the shorter variety, I didn’t think I was going to pull this off. I have to say after looking at the photos, I was totally rocking it! I can emphasize enough how comfortable and versatile this coat is! You can wear it anywhere, with anything. You can dress it up with some heels and a cute pair of flashy earrings, or you can dress it down with some leggings and an adorable pair of flat boots on a cold winter day.
