I've been thinking about coats lately... since it's getting cold here and I don't want to ruin my winter coat by stretching it out, I've been freezing in only my fleece that I have already stretched out. I'm thinking I can get away with wearing just the fleece if I add more layers underneath it... and a scarf and hat. :-) Good thing I don't really do my hair.
Now, this is a slightly materialistic question, and completely girly, but how many coats does a person need?
JT has 3 -- A wool peacoat, a Columbia jacket, and a fall/spring jacket. oh, 4 he has a down vest too. Mostly he just wears a sweatshirt if he's going outside...
I have more than 3 but I want to start over with my outerwear wardrobe since nothing really fits that great anyway. Currently, I have -- A Columbia type jacket, a dressier suede coat, a trench coat, a fleece jacket, a vest, an old cheer leading windbreaker, and a jean jacket. I think that's it...
What do I need? Living in MN makes it hard to have just one coat. I feel like I need a playing in the snow jacket and an everyday jacket, plus a dressy winter coat... but then there's 2 other seasons that also require outerwear... and a rain coat would probably be a good investment. But, do i get a dressy rain coat or a casual raincoat... ???
What kinds of coats/jackets do you have and do you think they're enough? Liz?? Ms. Coat-Guru?
