Despite the fact that I have all the winter jackets and coats that I need, I've been wanting a cocoon coat for a while. Perhaps it's the oversized slouchy fit, but there's something about cocoon coats that exudes a cool, laid back vibe without being sloppy. And because they're oversized, it's great for layering.

I particularly like the patterned cocoon coats like this one from Express. I had spotted this coat at Express a while back. I tried it on, really liked it but my practical self passed on it because it wasn't on sale and as I mentioned, I have all the coats that I "need". I figured I'd snag it when it went on major sale. Well, as always, the coat was nowhere to be found when Express was running their final season sales after the holidays. It was sold out online and none of the local stores had it. I gave up on it and told myself it wasn't meant to be. Well, I guess I was wrong because I was at Express returning an item one day and decided to take a quick look at the clearance rack and lo and behold, the coat was hanging there in all its glory in exactly the size I needed. I think this was divine intervention . And I got it for less than half the original price.
