In Canada we love our coats, well I am not sure if we love them or because of where we live we learn to embrace them, kind of like the chicken and egg joke right, which came first?? Cold weather gear doesn’t stop with coats, it includes hats and scarfs and mittens and gloves and boots… all great accessories until you have to wear them every day, trust me. If you live in a warmer place then yes you get a little coat envy at times but truly that is only because you do not have to wear them ( to stay warm) It can be fun at the beginning of the season to dig out the coats, try some different scarfs, add a hat, some boots and then it hits -20 and its not even December or you hear that snowmaggedon is on its way and you know that you will be shoveling out. Great exercise that shoveling but it is likely to cut into my picture taking time, darn, first world issues/blogger problems.
I do so love my coats and like many other things in my life I just may have a few to many but then again can one have to many in Canada???
Today we are focusing on my pink coat, I found this at Target last year and because its a junior I really had to size up to accommodate this mature figure of mine, the large fit perfectly except I thought it was to snug in the chest so I took it back and for the first time ever I purchased an XL and darn it, it is to big but I love the style and I love the colour and I was not prepared to give it up (plus it was on super sale 29.99 so heck I will figure this out). It doesn’t look way to big but it is far roomier than a coat should be and one of these days I will check into getting it tailored.
and another sad fact about living in Canada in the winter, glasses steam up/frost up alot
A funky hat, scarf and plaid gloves and the coat gets a new look
So as much as one great coat is all a gal really needs with some great scarfs, this one well.. lets just say I may have a few… just a glimpse into the winter world we live in and a sampling of coats cuz sadly no this is not all of them

Christmas is a time for family, a time to reflect on all the positive and good in our lives and to try to let go of the negative. Near or Far family is always in my thoughts especially at this time of year.
