Let's Talk About Coats

There was 17'' of snow this past weekend in Minnesota, but you know that's Minnesota so goes it. But, that weather report got me thinking that winter is coming (hehehe) and last year was a dozy of bitch-cold and I need to rethink my coat game for the coming cold season.  Part of me wants to keep things fashion fabulous, but then I recall the aching joints of bracing against icy wind and I just want to wrap up in a big comfy warm as fuck puffer. So here are a few pieces I'm thinking of adding to my winter wardrobe



This coat is chic and minimal and looks comfortable, but part of me also thinks it's a bit drab.


This is bright and cheerful, which is always a plus in the dead of winter, but I feel like the collar would bug, and I'm not crazy about pocket placement, appears to be potentially awkward. 


Now this seems like it'll be warm and it has interesting texture to keep it from being boring. 





This option is all about function, what with the Omni-Heat Reflective technology, which sounds like it may just win out over the more fashionable choices above...  


And I think I'm in love with these boots! 

Right now it's 40 degrees here in the 'Burgh and I still haven't had to don a coat thanks to my layering skills, featured in this post.  In two weeks I'm headed to Tanger Outlets and I'll be hitting up the Columbia Factory store AND G.H. Bass & Co. to begin my search for this winter's gear.
