Puffer Fish

I learned my mistake last year.  I haven't had a proper winter coat since my mom stopped buying them for me and after last year's winter, I learned that sometimes, you can be cute as a snow bunny.

So right at the top of my must-have list for this winter was a puffy coat.  One of my best friends had the North Face option that I was looking at and always seemed so cozy.  But when I saw this MK option at the Maxx, I knew I was in a lucky situation.  Sure, it wasn't North Face nor was it black, but who doesn't like navy (my favorite color)?

I didn't know how I felt about the hood - especially with the fur.  I wanted something simple.  But my boyfriend, who spent his college years in Chicago, assured me that I would love it and be glad I went this route.  

So I've learned - cover your butt.  Don't worry about look like the Michelin man.  Embrace the fur around your face.  Enjoy your hood.  Use those pockets.

I'm actually a little excited for winter...

Do you have items of clothing where you prefer comfort over cuteness?

  13. I have a coat like that too! It is not really needed in Indonesia but when I lived in New York during the winter, it was really handy.

  14. Good decision to buy this coat! A winter is hard without a proper coat and you look so good in yours!

  17. Obsessed with your coat! So cute! My closest TJ actually just had a black MK one just like this but there was no hood? ;( if there was, I would've definitely scooped it up! You're kind of making me wish I had even though there wasn't a hood.. lol
