Baby It's Cold Outside

With the abnormal and unpredictable weather of New England maybe it isn't so cold outside but, it is certainly coming. Last January a gal was laying out soaking up the Santa Monica sun just to take a red eye home to Boston. When arrived the stewardess relayed to the girl that her flight was the only flight to make it in. This female just came home to a killer snow storm.

That girl was me and there was no way this winter that I would risk surviving with a mere pea coat. I have been on a mission for a jacket like the one pictured, literally for two winter seasons. One day I found myself out shopping with my mother and sister. I had stumbled upon this DKNY gem at T.J. Maxx. All the coats like this  I had seen up untill this point were retailing between $300-$400. You bet your bottom dollar I got this beauty for $99.99. If you live in a cold weather climate a jacket is a necessity worth investing in. This would even make a great holiday gift for someone on your Christmas list this year!

Well dolls till next time, happy shopping!

Winter Wonderland Essentials

Happy spring! What better way to celebrate than with some snow flurries; like we haven’t had enough already. If you live in New England you are fully aware that it looks like a winter wonderland. Despite the fact that we are now in “spring”, there is no denying that a winter coat is an essential for the colder temperatures. Since we are in a season transition it is the ideal time to purchase your winter coat for next year (and the tail end of all this snow). Typically retailers will put the left over cold weather gear on sale in an effort to get rid of this merchandise before bringing in new spring products. February and the beginning of March is usually the slowest time of year for retail stores, in an effort to generate business retailers will send out coupons or incentives to get you, the consumer, into the store. Watch for these coupons in your email inbox because you can score some pretty sweet discounts.

Preparing for a winter apocalypse doesn’t mean you have to look like Randy and Ralphie from A Christmas Story, bundled up till you can barely move. I picked up this houndstooth coat at Macy’s a few years ago and I find it fabulous yet functional. I paired it with this red scarf for a pop of color. There are a variety of cold weather coats available to you that will fit your fashion personality while keeping you warm. Other accessories other than the coat and scarf appropriate for cold weather months include beanies, ear muffs, gloves, or mittens. As I mentioned prior, there is a plethora of different styles, fabrics, and patterns available to you in all the items mentioned. The idea is to get cold weather items that reflect you while still keeping you warm, which is top priority. Purchasing a winter coat is an investment but you can find a good deal around this time of year.

Well dolls thank you for swinging by! Good luck finding your winter wonderland apparel and keep the faith! The warmer weather is on it is way!
