Bracing for the Cold!

Is this the polar vortex all over again?!  If so, I’m prepared… with heavy coats, faux fur, tall boots, and lots of scarves.

When I was about 20 I saved an advertisement from Vogue of a beautiful long, off-white puffy coat that looked so warm and so fashionable. I saw it as a coat I would love for years and years, but at the same time it wasn’t all that practical for Texas.  I’m still in love with that style of coat and would totally wear it this week as the first sign of winter blows in.

puffy coat - BG

This Moncler puffer coat at Bergdorf Goodman reminds me of the coat in Vogue years ago.  At $1650 it’s an investment, but if you live in the cold weather or spend a lot of time outside, it may well be worth it.  Or if I’d purchased it at 20, then the cost per season would be reasonable.

puffy coat - street style

Street Gazing features amazing street styles, like this.  You know I’m loving the fur trim around the wrists and hood.  It really dresses up the look!

puffy coat - althea

For a great everyday look, this jacket from Athleta is a great choice.  It’s down filled, and at $228 it won’t break the bank.
