Well, the thing is, I’ve always had a coat problem.
I freaking love coats, y’all.
I LOVE THEM.
The other day when my new boots came in, it got me wanting that duffle coat from L.L.Bean, but I read the reviews and they said the shallow slanted pockets were problematic. Since this coat will be for our Christmas trip to New York, and I intend to not carry a purse if I can help it, good pockets are clutch. So I got on the hunt on pinterest this morning and stumbled upon not 1… But 3 of the best coats ever. And so I’ve ordered them all with the intent to try on and return the ones that don’t make the cut. I really, sincerely hope I have the willpower to do that, at least… Because I spent too much money not to, and y’all assured me that spending good money on one good coat is a good investment. So without further adieu, I offer the 3 best coats (for me) that I’ve seen in 2014.
The Boden Penryn parka with its detachable sherpa lined vest and a patterned lining of drawings of London which I found a 20% off + free shipping coupon for thank you very much:
The Boden Moleskin duffle, a little dressier and fully lined in sherpa, which I also used the 20% off coupon on (I’m going with navy—but look at that cozy lining!):
And I got the very last size 12 ASOS Bonded Check duffle coat even though I wear a size 8 because it’s all that was in stock and it was $87 with free shipping. It probably won’t fit (though ASOS does run really small sometimes) so it’s probably not even a legitimate contender, but isn’t it a pretty coat?!
Also, this Superdry duffle nearly bested the others, but for that price and northern December weather, I’m gonna want a zipper. The ASOS coat got a pass because it was way cheaper.
What do you think? Warm enough? Good enough for night time adventures? Too casual (probably)? I CAN’T WAIT TO WEAR A COAT.
The high was over 100 degrees today. Awesome.
