Winter Coat

Monday, November 29, 2010




Since it's been freezing cold the last couple weeks, it's finally snowed and Mark is probably tired of hearing me cry about it (or putting my hands up his shirt for warmth) I think it's seriously time to think about getting a warm coat (and stop losing my mittens). Last year I went for style and froze all winter long - this year I'm not messing around. Ok just kidding because these aren't like north faces or anything but they are long. Which to me seems warm!
My only dilemma is...which one?

1. Zara Nylon Anorak
2Asos Double Fronted Coat
3. ModCloth Rain Delay Jacket
4. Bostwick Wool Toggle


I'm definitely leaning towards one of them :)

I like them all so I'd say whichever keeps you the warmest. I don't usually worry too much about coats because here in Phoenix it's not that much of a problem but this morning it was 39 degrees when I got up and to me, that's the darn arctic!

I am all about being cozy and warm and I have the zara one. Its perfect for cold, snowy and freezing days:)

The top right is my favorite! And I always put my hands in my hubby's shirt. He hates it but I totally love it.

KristiMcMurry said...

oh goodness...making my mouth water with these! I got a coat already but I've postponed wearing it because I'm so scared to get it dirty :)

I am a big fan of the Asos one!

Damaris @Kitchen Corners said...

just found your blog and i'm loving it. i need one of those coats to keep me warm in this coldy california weather.

Kelly Leigh said...

ohh i like them all but i think a hood is essential!

Marie said...

I like the first one, looks super comfy and warm... The Asos one is pretty nice too xx

Nikki said...

Top left, then buy me one too!

fashion junkie said...

The Zara looks the warmest to me; but the toggle does have a very cozy neck warmer... which to choose? It's a dilemma. And I just love this sort of dilemma! :)

Mel said...

I love winter coats. I especially like the Toggle one, cute!

Jude said...

I love that about putting your hands up your hubby's shirt! :) These are all beautiful, totally different from one another - I'm slightly leaning towards the Zara just because it looks super warm (*and* sleek)! :)

Daniela said...

Love the modcloth one! I totally forgot about them while online shopping!!

Ninjagaiden78 said...

I like the first coat, stylish.

The Zara coat has great style.

Annie said...

I really love #1!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I love the green zara coat. Perfect for casual outings and a great length for a chic sweater dress and boots.

i absolutely adore that first winter coat!! of course it's from zara, i heart zara!!

Islandia Lane said...

aw, time for me to start breaking out the heavier coats too! Here in NYC this week the temps have finally dropped - not that happy about it though :-/

hopefully I can pull out some fun coats that will make the cold at least kind of worth it ;-)

Julie-Inspired Shares said...

I desperately need a new coat...it's just finding the time. Actually, I could probably get a really good deal today since it's cyber Monday:) I like the green one the most!
Have a lovely one, dear!

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

The Asos Double fronted is gorgeous, but doubting it will keep the cold out so maybe the Bostwick Wool?
Just invested in one myself from Hugo Boss, lovely but not very warm....

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Which one are you leaning towards?

I just noticed what you wrote in your comments- that is such a nice way of putting it- I have thought about saying something about that (and the come enter my giveaway bit) but am more passive aggressive about it.

Little Miss Curious said...

I love them! Especially the toggle :)
Looks so cozy

The first or second! I lovvvve that first one. CUTE!

ps-it's even cold here which i realize is relative, but seriously 36 degrees at night?? WHY?

Stephany said...

I really love them all!

The most wintery stuff I buy is a hoodie and some long-sleeved t-shirts since it really doesn't get that cold around here, thank goodness! :)

Good luck this winter!

ellie said...

You might best go for Zara's parka. Don't forget snowboots too! & a furry hat.

Dressings in layers here.

Zabrinah said...

The Zara coat is my very favorite! I really like 3, as well. Heck, I love them all.

Haha. I understand the trauma of losing mittens, as well!

:)

Best wishes,

Which ever one is the warmest, I'd say! I'm like you--I HATE being cold!

Signe said...

I just orered a nice warm jacket, fingers crossed it arrived soon!
And I would go for the one from Zara - looks both stylish and warm :)

Jamie said...

Love the Zara one - wish we had Zara here.

After a huge snow storm over the past couple of days, I'm officially finished with snow - if only thee wasn't more that needed shoveled.

nookie said...

love the asos one, gorgeous:x

Alina A. said...

love the second and last one! perfect for this winter.xx

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Nice picks- I think #4 is my fave :)

diana kang said...

the second one! its a classic and will go with anything!

Helena said...

the ASOS one is pretty amazing!

Metropolitan Mum said...

#2 looks like a great take on a Miu Miu I have seen earlier this winter. BUT scarves look completely ridiculous on top of it, and if you don't want to carry a cold all winter long, you might want to go for something a bit more close to your lovely neck.
#3 looks very fashionable but still warm?

ReallyRee said...

Love the ASOS one but the Zara one is pretty stylish for an anorak too!

Valerie said...

This is funny because I don't have a warm winter coat either. In LA I don't need one, but when we go someplace cold during the winter, I'm always miserable. I'm loving all of these, but something about #1 is really special to me.

Katie said...

the first one looks great!

Ms. Emily Ann said...

Love the army green!

Annushka said...

I Love this Winter Coat!!!))) Your post is lovely)))

Lynn said...

awe, i totally put my hands up the boyfs shirt too!!!! guys are just always SO warm, it's irresistible.

i really like all your selects but thinking about a coat versatile enough to wear with anything from jeans & tee to a cocktail dress is a toughie. although number 4 could totally work, i can see it with both and all the in-betweens too. is the fur collar removable cos you could change it up with a variety of scarves also.

Mimi said...

i like #2 and #3. let us know which one you'll pick! :D

every year i think i've going to invest in some coats, and every year i rely on my classic gray pea-coat. these are beautiful, though!

Mrs. Parker said...

I'm definitely leaning towards #1 for sure! But a good reminder of something to add to my birthday list! Maybe you should get those mitten clips - like you'd have as a little kid, so you don't lose your mittens any more! ;)

LyddieGal said...

Tough choice! I'm liking #3 a lot.
I've chosen fashion over function with winter coats before. getting a coat with no pockets proved to be the dumbest idea ever.

Chic on the Cheap

Melanie said...

#1 for sure! So cute!

Amy R. said...

I vote for the Zara coat for sure! I think you certainly need a coat girl. Read on twitter you lost your favorite hat. So sorry, I guess you will need to buy a hat to go with your new coat. Good luck with your selection:)

Nicole said...

I am in desperate need of a winter coat! Loving that last one!

style'n said...

tough choice-they are all so different! I kind of like #1 for the color ,style and b/c it's fun to have a parka!

Angelica Ng said...

I really love how winter coats are becoming so much more fashionable. It almost, ALMOST, makes me excited for winter.

Hi
Love the second one...
Have a great day, and thanks for all your lovely comments:)

Buckeroomama said...

#1 is more me... and I might be able to pull off #3, but can't do the other two. =) Good luck with your choice!

miss b and hustle said...

um! loving the army one!

She Wore It Well said...

number 3 is my fave. gotta love a cacoon coat! choosing fun things like coats is never a bad chore though :)

Oh, My Darling said...

They're all so perfect, though coat number 2 is especially fantastic!
