The Red Cups Are Coming…

It was actually cold in Dallas this weekend! And by cold I mean it was in the 50s in the morning and then warmed up into the 70s by the afternoon. But still, the mornings were crisp and it made me so excited for the holidays. My husband, Brian, got home last week and this was our first weekend with him back in town. He is gone for weeks at a time for work, you can read more about that in this post. I’m generally a hermit when he’s gone so it always feel so good to have him back so we can do things together.

Since the red cups have launched (I’m obsessed with all of them) I figured I could start wearing my red coat. Brian told me I looked like I was going horse back riding which is probably why I love this coat so much. I rode horses for most of my childhood and will always be obsessed with anything equestrian. This coat definitely fits that description. It’s tailored and beautifully made. Not to mention the color is  amazing! It’s between a burgundy and a red. Perfect for the holidays.

In this post I talked about my tips and tricks when looking for outerwear. As my collection has grown, I have started to add more color. Red is a color that I always say you can get so much wear out of. I kept the look classic with my white button down and black jeans, but I love pairing red with color, too. You will still see me sporting my red coat in February with my pink for Valentine’s Day.

    That is what the weather has been like here, and I am so glad it’s finally starting to cool off. Loved this coat on Insta and love it even more on the blog. And yay for red cups!

    This is such a great look; the coat is gorgeous! My outerwear collection is coming along, but definitely not as amazing as it could be. This way, I am still in the process of buying all my basics before I head out to more colourful pieces. I’m sure a red coat will be one of the first colourful ones I get though!

    xx Victoria


      That’s the best way to start! And I am surprised I waited as long as I did to buy a red one, because I love it! Thanks V! xo Bryn

    Adore this coat!!! And Brian is right- it does have an equestrian flare to it! I’ve always thought horseback riding was so classy and romantic 🙂 It’s on my bucket list to go riding in the English countryside one day- even though I have no idea how to ride a horse ha
