Things they are a-changin’.

There are some new opportunities that have come my way, and I’m excited to report that in January I’m moving to Minneapolis for a new job!

With that though, comes some pretty severe weather, even coming from Chicago. I just heard its actually colder there than Alaska. So, there’s that. I thought I would begin to look into some additional winter coats. I have one winter coat at the moment, that works just fine (its Calvin Klein, from Macy’s and I’ve had it for some years), but I’m thinking that in order to get through a Minnesota winter, I’m going to treat myself to an additional winter coat or two. I’m thinking one additional hardcore, shapeless one and then perhaps a more fashion-forward one for when I attempt to look cute. There are a few rules though:

1. My butt must be covered.

2. There must be a hood.

3. A tie belt is a bonus, for a little waist definition.

I’ve been scouring the internet for a few days and here are some options that I’ve found:

  1. My vote is the top coat, being a midwestern girl I know these winters don’t mess around. I have a Patagonia coat and it is not that cozy.
