I saw that L.A. was somewhere in the 80 and 90 degree range these past few weeks. WHAT?!? I realize it’s supposed to be cooling off for you all this week, but some of us who have sun with snow are still amazed.

Maybe one of the most difficult parts of winter is keeping your outerwear interesting. I’ve spoken about this before, but for me the solution to a coat that you reach for day after day in cold winter climates is COLOR.

This oxblood ultralight down hoody from Patagonia has been a lifesaver. The aubergine tone helps me mix and match it like a cardigan, and that Patagonia tech keeps me warm and toasty even on the days we hit sub zeros.

Huge fan, here, if you couldn’t tell– here are a couple similar posts regarding outerwear from last year around this time– here, and here. I’ve shopped some other fun outerwear options here: this, thisthisthis, this, this, save, save, save, save, save, save. A couple of those coats are some spring trench options I’ve been eyeing. But the rest are hard core warm plus hard core stylish. Perfect for sub zeros and all.

Have a glorious Thursday, friends!

XX, Megan

  1. Love the look, Megan! I agree about your suggestion for color during these winter months! I am seriously thinking about making these boots part of my boot collection 😉 Have a wonderful time in LA! (It’s 5 degrees in Boston this am!)

    1. Thank you, Marilyn! Collection is right, for the cold climate style subset. 🙂 We are actually only headed as far as Southern Utah. We had just had friends return from the LA area where it was SO HOT! Thank you for the sweet travel wishes, I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend! Love your comments, responses, and discussion!
