How I Wear My Coat!

I am so sorry to be a little giddy...I truly understand that many of you are suffering through this cold.

However, in South Texas we have not seen winter in a long, long time.  This has been fun...to actually wear more than one coat during a season!  I like to mix things up...not always wearing the same coat and, I prefer, a mix of seasonal weather.  The heat is just more bearable if we actually have some colder air leading in and out of it.  (Hold the hate mail!)
Today, JILL and ADRIENNE asked their blogger friends to send a picture of how we wear our coats...I got so excited, I sent them a selection of four!  Someone once told me in extreme cold weather there is no hug like a fabulous winter coat, and my last year's purchase at Soft Surroundings in the first picture is one big, soft, toasty hug all day long.  You can see all of the bloggers in their coats HERE and HERE!

  Stay warm...I truly hope no one has suffered a serious hardship due to the cold.  (You have a standing invitation to visit...we will see a climb to the upper 70s over the next couple of days...remember, no hate mail!)

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! Stay warm!

Coat: Soft Surroundings
Blue Top: Chicos
Leggings:  Coldwater Creek

  1. Pam-your coat looks incredibly comfy-'a big toasty hug'-how fun. I love that red number on you. We are waiting for rain here in NorCal. Isn't it fun to connect with the HIWM posts?
    We are 'back at it' but at least we are over the half way mark right?

  4. Pam-we used to live in Northern NY-7 hours north of Manhattan, on hour south of Montreal. Now in Knoxville Tn. I am using my North skills to keep our pipes warm and my coats to keep me warm. Enjoy the cool weather. We're going from 1 above yesterday to 60 by Sat. Pam B.

  5. While I can't speak for everyone in the "polar vortex," I'm always happy to hear news from warmer places. All of your coats look fabulous!

  6. I think it's wonderful that you have the opportunity to wear your coats. Especially when you have this wonderful inventory of outerwear. I love wearing mine! It's one of the joys of the winter season.

  13. I love your 'How I wore my Coat' post and I found you thru Jill's page. It was so fun to be apart of it and I also just read the entire post 'I Matter' and she is such an inspirational writer and although I'm not a mom yet, I can see how this could easily happen and how hard it must be. Good for her for saying 'I Matter'.

  14. I love the pic of you with the burnt-orange coat under the trees, particularly because the orange tinged leaves match! Clever, clever. Enjoy sporting your coats this winter.

  15. I might have to take you up on that invitation to visit! It's -13ºC here today (8ºF), much warmer than it's been for the past while! Your coats would work well in spring and fall here. I'm with Virginia though, I love reading about warmer places so no hate mail from me either.
