This week I felt a chill in the air for the first time, the kids of course thought it was super cool (amateurs, wink). The mere sight of my breath in the air, well it was pretty depressing. Winter is…well winter, let’s just leave it at that. Since I literally wear my winter coat for 5 months out of the year, it’s pretty important to have one that’s really warm and in a style that I totally love. But of course, I also don’t like to spend a ton of money especially on winter (peee-ewww) clothes. In my search for a coat for myself, I found a few I really love all under the $300 price point (it’s about as low as you can go for a decent coat), some warmer then others – so if you haven’t snagged a coat yet, maybe now’s your chance.

A super warm down filled coat is a requirement, but it’s pretty great to have a secondary wool coat for those days that don’t freeze your eyelashes as soon as you step outside.
And a quick little note, since JCrew has a 25% off sale (with code TGIFALL) till Sunday (outerwear is included) and The Gap has a $40 off for every $100 spent on outerwear sale (with code 40OFF100 or 40OFF100CA for Canada) till Sunday, here are my favorite kids coats from both places – since they both happen to be my favorite place to get the kids coats.
Have you bought your coat for the year? Which is your favorite?
