Winter Woes

Last night, my boyfriend and I were out and about. In my standard snow get-up, I complained, "I hate winter because I don't feel cute!" He replied, "Well, I think you look cute but maybe you could buy a nice pea coat or something."

(I don't think he necessarily meany pea coat, I think he just meant a more tailored coat.)

After his sage comment, I realized that I do keep my Columbia jacket in heavy rotation. As sturdy, warm, and reliable my beloved jacket is, I decided to scope out some possible alternatives.

Lux Bastille Coat, $49.99 Lux North Country Coat, $49.99

I'm a big fan of peter pan collars- hence, why I like the (pantone?!) blue number so much. Maybe I'll end up buying it... Oh, and I also love the cowl neck of the orange coat. The colors of both are cheery- the kind of colors that shoo away winter woes.

Spiewak Helena Cape, $99.99; Lux Pleat Front A-Line Coat, $39.99

OK, so the black isn't exactly a coat but it looks cozy. The yellow, which looks just as cozy, is charming. Check out the link to see the finer details.

The best part is that all of the above are on sale. Are stores forgetting that it's still cold out? (At least, it's still freezing in Colorado.)

Those are adorable! I really like the brights. But honestly, I get so cold in the winter that I've retired my pea coat until the temperature gets above 50 again...

Heather, I need to start a line of coats that are comfortable, adorable, and lined warmly! It doesn't seem like there are a lot of those.

Cee-Cee, which one did you like? The yellow? :]
