Last week I talked about a few options for great winter outerwear, and this parka is one of my favorites. J.Crew has two available options at very different price points, but both are high-quality and available in extended sizes: petite, regular and tall. The current style at J.Crew has a few colors on sale, but comes in around $365 regular price. J.Crew Factory is selling a nearly identical version for $139, also available in extended sizes and multiple colors. Either one is a great classic style, versatile enough for dress or weekend looks.

I also want to mention the tissue turtleneck I am wearing in today’s look. It has been one of my absolutely favorite basics for work and weekend. I wear this one and my striped version all the time. It comes in so many colors, but I suggest black as your first option, and then mixing in other colors that work with your wardrobe palettes. It really is a very flattering basic for anything from jeans to pencil skirts.

To create the rest of my look:

Pants: J.Crew Factory (same pair available here, and similar pair here) | Turteneck: J.Crew | Shoes: DSW (similar here)

    Did you ever notice a problem with the interior lining started to pill? I’ve only worn the coat with jeans and in total about 5 times and each time there’s a newly ruined spot on the lining.

      I have not, but I’ve only been able to wear it twice due to the warm weather. I’ll keep an eye out and report back if so.

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
