It is COLD here, the snow, the sleet and yucky weather that keeps on pouring down on us keeps the cold here and even though we have had a few breaks from the cold most of the time it is cold. A challenge I have always had with the cold weather is jackets. When I was in high school I had a snowboarding jacket and since then that is the winter coat I have worn. It is less then fashionable, its big and bulky and there is nothing fashionable about it.
When Eddie Bauer offered me the chance to check out their new winter coat line and pick one to try out I was excited. A winter coat that would be fashionable and keep me warm! I was not prepared for how hard it was going to be to pick one out, seriously they have so many that are so cute and so many different colors that it took me forever to pick out one.
When it arrived I was shocked that it was not big and bulky, I expected this big massive coat that would make me waddle with all the stuffing that would be in it to keep me warm and it was not there at all. What shocked me even more was that on the coldest of days it keeps me snuggly warm! Really when you look at the jacket and see how thin it is it is hard to believe that it is going to keep you warm in freezing cold weather but they do!
Now being as short as I am it is important to me that clothing helps me look my age, ok so nothing really makes me look like I am going to be 30, I have come to terms with that but many times coats make me look like I am about 16 years old. While this one has a bit of fluff on the hood it does not make me look like a kid. It is mature enough that I can wear it and not look like I just stepped out of the juniors department. It is also the perfect length, they have petite, regular and long so no matter your height you will find one that is the perfect length for you!
I love this jacket, I have worn it on super cold days with just a tshirt under it to walk the block to get the kids from school and my legs when I wore jeans were freezing but my top half was perfectly warm!
