Coat Crushes

Ahh the lovely Midwest. One day it's 60 and sunny and the next ... barely 30! Eeek! While most of us are already contemplating our spring wardrobes - and what needs to be added to them and pronto - Mother Nature (and our husbands) are telling us to slow down. Which doesn't have me off shopping - oh no. Now I'm just thinking I need a new coat. Here are the two contenders:


J Crew's Stadium Cloth Cocoon Coat in heather stone 

North Face Metropolis Parka in black
Very different coats of course - I'd love them both! But the problem ... price! Both are around $320. The J Crew coat is supposed to go on sale - nearly every other color in this same style has already - but by then, who knows if they'll have my size.

Dilemmas! By the time I figure this one out, we'll be back in the 60s ... but maybe for next year! What's your vote on the coat? I'd love to hear from you!

  1. This post sang to me. I have been dreaming of both these exact coats for a long while! The warmth of the NF and the silhouette of the JCrew. Wow, you hit the nail on the head. Coats ARE a necessity. You'll wear them for yeeeeears. Not sure who I'm trying to convince here. :) Have a lovely Tuesday!

    1. You have me convinced! Now I just need a little windfall ... or perhaps a sale! Thanks for your comment, and have a great day to you too!

  2. Ok girls, this is too funny - I've already dropped several hints about that very same North Face coat for my birthday coming up and I actually snapped up that wool coat from Jcrew today (its on sale now)! #editgroupie

  3. the northface is a classic winter coat and you can wear it on your trips to Denver (hint hint) and you will look like a local!
