My regular readers are well familiar with the fact that winter is my least favorite season. And so far, this has been the coldest winter I can remember. To make things even worse, last month I tried to squeeze my then very pregnant belly into my winter coat, and a button popped off, shot across the room, and cracked in two. I also busted out a seam. (It was both amusing and pathetic, let me tell you.) I was able to temporarily repair it, but the coat has definitely seen better days, and with at least two months of winter weather still ahead, I started thinking that it might just be time for a new one. Besides, what better way to make the best of a less-than-ideal situation (I'm talking to you, Chicago winter from hell) than with something new and fun to wear?
Any of the outerwear you see above would make me a very happy lady, winter and all. I think the front runners are the Sophie (which would make a perfect transition-into-spring jacket and is also 60% off right now!) and the super chic Corey, both from Andrew Marc, and the cheery yellow Boxy Coat from H&M. They're all very different styles, but each one caught my eye for its gorgeous design.
Have any of you invested in a new winter coat this year? What are your favorite items from the picks above?
