gatta love this weather report: "high of 15, feels like 4" - thank you weather.com. thankfully, a few years back i made a very smart purchase that will hopefully stick with me for years to come.
the "sleeping bag" coat as i call it, from brooklyn industries, has proven to be the warmest coat i've ever worn. i bought it on sale, at the end of the season, when the 5 degree days had already passed. i can't remember exactly what i paid, but it was around half off and knew it would come in handy.
it nearly hits the ground, has thumb holes (which is basically how i was sold on it), and is 50% down, 50% feather filling to keep it super warm but not super bulky. paired with my scarf, hat and gloves - i was actually prepared to face the elements today. although i will be staying in doors as much as possible
