fash•ion (fash-uh n) | winter coat

So what does it mean when Punksatony Phil sees his shadow on February 2nd?  It means that I'll still be getting good use of my cute winter coats.  I keep one huge puffy (non-attractive) coat for functionality, but I've learned that sometimes if you want to wear the cutest coats - you have to tough out the cold weather.  Luckily some coats provide great warmth, but in my book - it's all about appearance.  Shallow isn't it?  But it's true.  Afterall that's what layers are made for right?

|Are most of your coats for fashion or functionality?|

Both! I've got cute ones to wear that are more fitted so I can't wear my bulky sweaters under them. Then I've got my functional puffy coat and even a boring, black wool one. You can't have too many coats, right?

I actually don't have any really cute coats. I need some. The ones I want are from J Crew and cost a lot of money.

Most - no all - of my coats are for fashion. Good thing we are having a mild winter.

Chic on the Cheap

I def. am a more funtion gal as I am afraid of the cold and always bundle up! But these pictures prove you can be warm and chic at the same time too as I love the style and color of that coat on you!

Hope all is well my dear and have a great weekend!

It IS all about how the coat looks. My mom gave me the warmest coat ever, but it's more practical than attractive. I just can't bring myself to wear it though... No matter how cold it is outside.

I've got both, but the coats for functionality generally don't make it out of my closet. However, I do have one 1950's wool coat that is super attractive and also extremely warm, but I've never worn it! I always think it's too fancy....I think I'm just going to have to start being fancy!

Also could you stop being so adorable all the time?!
I'm getting green eyes over here. JK, you look great. That coat is perfect on you!


XOXO, Lindsey

haha I totally know what you mean but actually have the opposite problem, I'm always wishing I could wear big cozy winter hats and coats and it's usually not cold enough here. You look adorable though!
