Finding a Great Coat

The perfect balance of minimal bulk and warmth: Via Spiga Coat; Cynthia Vincent Heels

For the most part, living in California, jackets aren’t a big part of the wardrobe. But moving from Southern California to Northern California last year, the bit of actual winter we have here hit me hard (I know – smallest violin playing for me!). I realized the thin trench coats I had for short trips to the area didn’t cut it day-to-day. I wanted something warm but not bulky and that could be dressed up or down.

I happened to stop by Amazon.com and they were featuring a beautiful set of coats. It’s like they read my mind.

This Via Spiga coat is love (who knew they did more than great heels?!). It’s a mix between a trench and a pea-coat, with a cropped silhouette and a belt to show some form. And the color is a classic – that also won’t show the light colored hair from my always shedding pups! : )

What do you look for in a winter coat? What is your favorite coat color this season?

San Francisco fall (not so different from San Francisco summer! ) ; )

It’s always coat weather in this city. San Francisco has the lowest average temperature in the country.

PS – fun fact: until last week’s post I’ve been using my iPhone for pictures exclusively. This post features 1/2 pictures with my iPhone and 1/2 with my amazing new Sony Cyber-shot Camera. Can you guess which two pictures are taken with which device?
