Happy belated New Year everyone! Time to share my favorite ‘luxe vs less’ shearling coats with you.
While I have been slowly decompressing from the holiday frenzy, I am finally sitting down in my lovely little office back to doing what I enjoy. I have been off the grid since “Santa” decided to bestow us with a mini-schnauzer puppy for Christmas. Monty (as in Monty Alexander, aka Moby Dick’s brother) has been a fun and snuggly addition to our family, but he is a baby. And well, it has been a while since we’ve had one of those. Trying to housebreak a puppy in the winter is not recommended. Much like trying to potty train your child in the winter…you can’t leave ’em to run around naked…it’s cold. What was “Santa” thinking? These last two nights Monty actually did not whimper and held his business till the morning, which is probably why I am feeling so elated to get back to you all.
I guess I’m not a true New Englander because honestly, I cannot stand the cold. It’s January and we still have two and half months of winter left. Looking on the bright side, the days are getting longer since we passed the winter equinox on December 21st. While everyone in the family is well stocked with fabulous cold weather accessories, thanks to Christmas, somehow I left myself out of that equation. I love shearling coats and I’ve always wanted one. Well this year I caved and went for the luxe version, but this one was on sale from Club Monaco for $595. Whether you want to splurge or save, there is a gorgeous coat waiting just for you.
A bit of advice, go down a size, you will not need much underneath as these beauties are very warm. Plus, you don’t want to look like a real-life version of your kids stuffed animal.
Ok, so here we go….drum roll…click and buy as you please. And ladies, enjoy the frigid temps in style!
