shopping guide: coats!

As the weather continues to cool off it is time to start thinking about your most important accessory for winter - your coat! Depending on where you live you may need more of a jacket than a full-on coat. But if you are like me living in Michigan or really any where in the Midwest or East Coast you need a virtual arsenal of coats and jackets to keep you warm!

I like to have a really practical coat that is super warm. For that I depend on my puffer coat - for trips to the bus stop with the kids... and of course for the yearly Christmas Tree hunt! But, I also like to have a nice tailored coat or two hanging around for making me feel like a lady (and not just a girl wrapped in a sleeping bag) during the colder months.

Any of these options would be great investments for this winter... which one do you love?

My fav is also the Minus the Leather jacket. Can you say hotness? I'm not sure I can pull that off though. Haha.

I really like the white Old Navy coat. I just worry about wearing a white jacket. I fear it will show every bit of dirt and wear!!!

I too have a puffer, sleeping bag coat from when I lived in NY. Totally can't wear it down here. My red jcrew coat is almost in shreds. I just can't pull the trigger on a new coat. I can't make a decision to save my life...
