Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Oh the weather outside it frightful... Not really but it did finally snow up here in Minnesota!  It now just feels like the Holiday season, snow just makes the world of a difference.  Plus I feel that if the weather is going to be this cold you at least deserve something pretty to look at right?

But I did just realize something terribly crazy yesterday!  I don't own a winter coat or snow pants, and I am from Minnesota!!  Mark and I were talking about going skiing when I came to this realization.  I honestly cannot tell you the last time I bought snow pants, elementary school maybe? Middle School?  I am really not sure!  I mean yes I have my nice wool winter coats, but it would be nice to have a good down winter coat!  So I decided to do a little online shopping and find some of this seasons styles I love the most!
Here is what I found!
You can't go wrong with a North Face.  I love this trench because it is two coats in one.  I also like that it is longer, that way it will help keep my legs a bit warmer!

My sister bought a jacket similar to this one the other day.  I like it because it does not look as puffy, some down jackets make you look like the Michelin man!  This would be a great jacket for sledding, and well maybe skiing (yes Mark may finally get me out on the ski slopes, funny ski story I will share later)!
And last but not least just a good old winter coat, sleek and simple!

Oh and because a girl can dream...
I promise Santa I have been really good this year!!  
Now it is officially time to set the Pandora stations to Christmas music (Michele Buble Christmas Station anyone?), sit back with a cup of this, 
(Starbucks White Hot Chocolate)
Oh yea and finish out the work week!
I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Oh and did anyone watch the lighting of the Rockefeller Tree?
Just beautiful!
New life goal is to go to New York and see the Rockefeller Tree be lit in person!

  6. I'm a huge North Face fan...just wish it wasn't so doggone expensive! I have their lighterweight fleece and that's about all we need here in Florida.

  10. I love that beautiful Burberry coat! I have a feeling I haven't been quite good enough this year, but I'm hoping Santa brings it me anyway. ;)

    If not, I'll set for a white hot chocolate. :)

  13. We have so many things in common! Long distance relationship. something else, and our love of pretty snow. Cute picks for the coats. And you are always welcome to stay at my house, which is a short train ride away from the big Rockefeller Christmas tree!

  14. That first Northface jacket is amazing! Definitely a must in the Northeast -- it is getting so cold here! That yummy hot drink would do the warm-up trick, too. xo style, she wrote

  22. I've never tried their white chocolate. As a matter fo fact, I was just there and got a boring old tea. Next time for sure!

  23. NYC Rockefeller is a must see in Xmas. And I loved your coats... especially the Northface and Burberry (i'll keep dreaming). HA!

  24. When I was living in DC last winter, I splurged and bought 2 Lands' End coats...no buyers remorse because I never again complained about being cold and I know I will use them forever, plus they always have such great sales around this time of year! xo

  25. Yum that white hot chocolate looks so good, I've never had that one before! And I have my Michael Buble Christmas CD on repeat :) So dang good!

  26. Just catching-up on my reading! I feel like I'm always saying that. I think I have that North Face Insulated Jacket - in a white/gray pattern. I LOVE it! I worry that longer puffer jackets would get annoying. I've tried them on and I always find them to be pretty sliming, but I always end-up with the traditional length coats.
