The weather has been super mild this entire week and it feels amazing! However, I know freezing cold temps are right around the corner so I finally picked up this puffer coat that I had my eye on forever. I’m picky when it comes to coats and especially puffer coats because many of them can make me look like a huge marshmallow. As soon as I tried this particular one on, I was immediately in love with it. It darts in at the waist which is the KEY for making a coat look flattering on most body types. And since I am only 5’4″, most coats are too long on me and overwhelm my frame but this fell at the perfect length. It’s warm but not too bulky and the arms have tons of room so you can wear a heavy sweater underneath and not be uncomfortable. The final selling point for me was that it had a hood. Even though I wear a hat most days in the winter, having a hood helps keep me warmer and dry in the rain/snow. It comes in a bunch of colors and all of them are currently 50% off! It’s such a great classic coat that you will have for years to come so if you are looking for a new winter coat, I cannot recommend this one enough!

Ok, now that I rambled on and on about a coat for an entire paragraph (but it was worthy of it!! LOL), I thought I would share some of my picks from the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale that is happening now until January 2nd! So many great pieces are marked down and I shared all the ones not to miss in the widgets below. Shop the entire sale here.
