Baby it’s COLD outside! {thrift style thursday – coats}

Thrift-style-thursday-coats

So, here’s the deal. I love coats/jackets/trenchcoats/whatever. The problem is a. I live in NC and it doesn’t get THAT cold and 2. I am allergic to most wool.

My favorite type of coat is a classic structure peacoat of some sort, maybe something with a vintage flaire. Problem is most of them are WOOL – which is a no-no. So, when it gets really cold, I stick to “ski jackets” – ie. fleece jackets from Mountain Hardware, Northface, and Arcteryx. While these types of coats are very good for cold weather, they are NOT exactly “stylish”…

So, save for a few lighter jackets, all I can do in winter is look longingly at all of you wearing your wool peacoats and cashmere sweaters and sigh….

But here’s a jacket (I wouldn’t call it a coat because it’s mostly cotton and not really warm) that I love to wear when it gets a little chilly outside:
