a new year

I can't believe it's 2016! And with a new year comes new opportunities. I am so excited about the collaborations and partnerships that I have in store for the months ahead. I will be expanding upon the existing content categories here at Rivas Raves, so you can expect to see more fitness- and travel-specific posts. I will also be adding some new content categories in the very near future. Stay tuned! One of my latest collaborations is with Fancy Frills Boutique, an online shopping destination with a wide selection of apparel and accessories. The Perfect Peacoat certainly lives up to its name. It's a quintessential piece of outerwear that's a must for every woman's wardrobe. You always need to have a good, dependable peacoat to fall back on, and this one is sure to help you stay stylishly warm throughout the colder months.

Although I have the coat in this classic taupe color, it's available in several hues including red, black, green, and navy! And at $32,99, why not get more than one? (I'm personally eyeing the green and navy.) The coat features polished button detailing and comes with a removable belt. My favorite part of this coat is the adorable leopard print lining in the hood -- it's an unexpected detail that stands out. This look is pretty casual, but I can definitely see this coat dressed up with a pencil skirt and pumps.
