It’ll Be Cold Before You Know It…

winter warm

Hat / Scarf / Mittens / North Face Coat / Black Coat / Sorel Boots / Grey Coat

As the temperatures drop, everything takes a back seat to keeping warm.  If you live in a climate where is gets sub zero you know what I’m talking about ;)  A good coat is so important to surviving the winter.  After living in the Chicago suburbs for 10 years (and surviving 10 winters!) I have learned a few things about what to look for in a winter coat.

  • Long enough to cover my butt (keeps me much warmer!)
  • Must have a hood!
  • Dark color (so it doesn’t look dirty)
  • Has a zipper, and not just buttons
  • Really like the way it looks, because I will be wearing it every. single. day.
  • Invest my money in a quality coat, because it’s worth it

I have picked out a few coats that meet all my requirements.  All of these coats will keep you warm and cozy all winter.  Plus I had to share my other favorite winter must haves to stay warm; boots, scarf, hat and gloves.
