Covering Up in Cold Weather

With the cold weather coming in, now is the time to get a stylish coat.  Considering the amount of time us mothers spend outside - playgrounds, picking kids up at school, running errands, etc., all mothers should own a fabulous coat.  Save the fleece jackets, sweatshirts, and ski jackets for yard work and shoveling the driveway.  Beyond those situations, do not be tempted to wear a frumpy "mom" jacket.  


If I had the time, I would hit up the outlets, TJ Maxx, Nordstrom Rack, and Marshalls to see their selection.  What a dream! ... However, like most mothers, I don't have the luxury of getting out to shop for myself, and end up shopping online.  In my opinion, the best website out there for inexpensive chic outerwear is SmartBargains.com - Anne Klein, London Fog, Betsy Johnson, Via Spiga, Laundry, Ellen Tracy, ABS, Nine West, and Nicole Miller - all under $150.  


To guide you, I have narrowed my choices down to these four, all under $125.  These coats are fashionable, and all of them are long enough to cover those hips & butt!
