Coat Shopping? Okay.

November 15, 2013


I am quite pleased that weighing under 160 (currently holding steady at 155) for the first time in my life since High School has officially made a difference in what size clothes I wear. My large and extra large tops are for the most part, out of my closet. They just look frumpy. I’ve taken ALL of the size 12 pants out of my closet. I now have ONE pair of Black Jeans/Pants and TWO pairs of regular jeans. That’s it. Oh, and lots of cozy sweats and leggings. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am taking a trip to Chicago in December and I know I need a coat. I have a couple of Wool coats that I put on, and they really just look silly. So, I’m shopping. I found these two at Burlington, and I will likely take one back, but I couldn’t decide and they were priced quite nice!


Short with Silver Zipper! It’s thin and you can fold it up and put it in a bag that comes with it!



Longer with Gold! A little dressier…..Looks old ladyish???
