Hello, hello! Okay, so I already know what you’re thinking — it’s not actually that cold outside. You’re right — it’s been crazy warm for November and December the past few weeks. But, the temperatures are supposed to drop the next few days and possibly feel a little like winter. Before the winter chill sets in, let’s make sure you’re prepared. The most worn piece of clothing in a midwest girl’s winter wardrobe is definitely her winter coat — so it’s important you have a good one. By “good one”, I mean one that is warm enough for when the temps dip below freezing, but is also cute enough that you’ll love wearing it (and won’t decided to go coat-less because it doesn’t go with your outfit).
Last year, I took the plunge and invested in my new favorite coat — J. Crew’s Cocoon Coat. This sleek wool style is warm, comfortable and chic, making every outfit look instantly polished just by popping it over the top. Although they don’t make this exact style and color anymore, J. Crew Factory has a nearly identical version (for way less too). If you see me this winter, I’ll likely be in my Cocoon Coat, a pom beanie and OTK boots — my new winter uniform.
