What {I'm Wearing this Winter!}

Prior to moving here, I used to poke fun of people, especially women, who wear the puffy, ill-fitting, down-filled coats. It was mostly about fashion {...or the lack thereof} and the fact that I've never once seen a Texas winter where the weather required them.

Then, it hit me. The snow, that is. It's cold, albeit beautiful, and you {MUST} to protect yourself! On an outing at a local outlet mall, I found one of these heinous coats, tried it on, and bought it. And let me tell you, I take back EVERYTHING I've said about these coats. {Except the ones that are ill-fitting, but that's a crime in almost every coat.}
All suited up!
The collar can be cinched up to shield your face from the icy wind.
Then, folded down to reveal that face!
Warmer days mean more buttons undone.
See the cinch-strings?
Coat: Guess
Back View. 
What do you think? Have I crossed over to the {other side}? :)

P.S. - I bought this $300+ coat for $45. The deals you can get at outlet malls! {And no, this had NOTHING to do with the ease of this purchase! Not at all.} 


  1. If I had to deal with snow I would buying one of those ASAP. I have a thinner puffer coat but haven't wore it much. I may need it more this year.

    1. I know the feeling! Before moving to PA, I never had to use a coat like this. Now, it's coming in handy. :) Thinner is the way to go, I think!

  2. I think it looks great! I wish we had weather that called for this kind of coat... It's 70 degrees here right now!

    1. Thanks, Natalie! I was worried about how it'd look, but I got over that real quick when I needed it! The teens don't feel too nice without one of these puffy coats.


Thanks for your comment; I'm all ears!
