    bluesparkles:  My choice isn`t listed. I am lucky enough to live in Vancouver so a winter coat is rarely necessary. I most often wear a Gore-Tex jacket and add a fleece underneath on really cold days.

    I have a long black dress coat for appropriate occasions.

    I have a few of each of those and pick one depending on the temperature and windchill. When walking to class/clinic I’ll probably wear a long puffer. For date nights and weekends probably a long peacoat.

    Our winter weather varies here in ND, so you must be prepared for anything! I’ll be switching between either a puffy (down) coat, a peacoat, or a tri-climate coat.

    I actually wear 3 coats during winter. My go-to winter coat is a long puffer coat. During snow storms, when I have to spend hours shovelling snow or I just want to spend the day playing outside, I wear my old pink puffer. The faux-fur has become quite ugly over the years, but this coat never fails to keep me warm. And when we go out for the Holidays and such, I wear a long peacoat and tall boots.

    bluesparkles:  Normally, I wear a North Face down jacket- just waist length.  I live in MN, and it keeps me warm.

    I’m pregnant though- and my jacket doesn’t fit.  So I’m wearing the only jacket I have that fits me- it’s an old boyfriend’s brother’s (talk about random that I still have it- 16 years later LOL–Columbia jacket.  It’s a lighter wieght jacket with fleece inside but I will wear it with a sweater until baby comes.

    bluesparkles:  I live in Florida, so I really don’t need a winter coat. When it does get chilly, I mostly use a hoodie or fleece. I do wear a leather jacket on occasion, I have a bomber style and a more biker style one. When I lived up north, I was a big fan of the long pea coat.

    bluesparkles:  I find coats cumbersome so I just layer a lot. On the coldest days I will wear a thermal under a long sleeve shirt, a hoodie, and one of DHs big work fleeces over it. I’m always cold and can’t believe how so many women can hack it with just a blouse and a pea coat.

    I live in the North, so I’ll be wearing a Canada Goose parka, cold tested to -50 (this one, in charcoal: http://www.canada-goose.com/dawson-parka-3040L.html)!

    We’re still in the awkward stage where it’s cold, but not cold enough to wear the parka, so today I’m wearing a long wool peacoat. But we’re forecasted to drop to -27 overnight, so looks like I get to break out my parka tomorrow!

    bluesparkles:  I have a bunch of coats.  

    My go-to dress jacket is a knee length belted aline car coat.  It’s wool, brown, with a faux fur collar.  I constantly get asked where I bought it.  I was out at an event and a girl I know through our ski club texted me the next day to tell me she’d just bought it!  I consider that a pretty high compliment! 

    My go-to casual jacket is a grey military style jacket.  It’s actually an old ski jacket, so it’s fully water proofed and warm.  I’ve never seen another ski jacket like it.  

    My actual ski jacket is a purple and white (abstract floral) solomon soft shell.  It’s very fitted.  And it has a purple mid liner that can be worn under neath for more warmth.  I adore this jacket.  But I didn’t really need it when I bought it.  So I swore up and down to my sister and best friend (who were with me) that I would *only* wear it skiing.  (I had a bad habit of wearing my ski gear out when I wasn’t skiing.)  I just realized, that’s the jacket in my profile photo!

    LL Bean short puffer for me and I have a special attachment to it.  DH got it for me as my Christmas present last year and hid my engagement ring in a pocket before he wrapped it up. After I opened it and tried it on, I found the ring and he proposed.  I now call it my engagement jacket.:)
