My favorite season is and always will be winter I love everything about it except the bare trees (such an eye sore) if winter had fall trees I would be the happiest gal on the planet. For the past couple of winters I've been living in Baltimore and I've seen snow- a lot of snow =happy gal. This season my outfits consist of a cozy knit , high waist denim, a cool sneaker or comfortable boot depending on the occasion & mood, a wool hat, a leather tote and most importantly a warm coat. It gets pretty chilly here so a good coat is necessary in Texas (my hometown) a wool coat is just fine however when it's 5 degrees out a wool coat will not keep you warm. I'm no expert but I will say that what's kept my tush warm have been a knee length puffer coat (similar one) and this year I added (this) Penfield coat to my closet. Both have kept me very warm and both are so light weight. If you're in the market for a good coat check out Penfield, I've seen them all over Madewell stores and I was hesitant but I am a believer now.
