Wooo girl, it's been pretty cold here. We kind of skipped fall in Chicago, and plunged straight into winter. But I got a package the other day that warmed my heart and spirit. And inside the package, a note read: "Winter doesnt have to mean a wardrobe that is all doom and goood. I hope you love these fun and happy pieces!" Signed: Macy's. The package included a pastel-colored sequin dress and a baby blue coat. THIS is what dreams are made of!

Naturally, I put both the dress and coat on, despite the rainstorm outside. I felt like magic. I have never owned a baby blue coat like this Cole Haan one, which comes in plus sizes! I think it's really unique and beautiful. But honestly, I was a little nervous to try it—you know your girl likes to stick to neutral tones, especially when it comes to a staple item like a coat. However, sequins have always had my heart. When I was 18, sequins were everything! I wore sequins almost every day. Yeah, I didn't have the most refined sense of style back then, but my love for sequins hasn't gone away. To my surprise, sequins have made a reappearance over the last year. So when I saw this Adrianna Papell dress, I was so thrilled. I got an exclusive sneak peek of this dress so it's not yet online at Macy's, but when I get the link, I will post it here, and I will post it on my Instagram (so stay tuned)! But while we wait...I need ideas of where to wear this dress! Because my style is a little more low-key these days, I'm wondering where I can pull this dress off. Let me know in the comment section below, or let's chat on Instagram! (username: @nataliexcraig)

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 1X in the Cole Haan Blue Coat, which is a size smaller than my usual size, but I heard it ran a little big. I should have ordered my usual size because while the coat fits, I would like it to be a little looser! I am wearing a size 18W in the Adrianna Papell dress, which is my usual size, but I could have ordered a 16 because I love my dresses to fit tight.
