The Parka

My very first Parka! Hear me out. I was never one for Parkas. I never saw the beauty in them. Plus, everyone had one and I wanted to be different. Well, I came across this one at F21 and you wouldn't believe me when I say this bad boy was a whopping $9! The original price was about $60! 

* Pausing for dramatic effect! *

I couldn't pass up a deal like that. Plus I honestly thought with the weather getting warmer, I didn't have to pull out this beauty until the end of the year. Boy was I wrong. The following week when the temperature dropped to 20 degrees after we were having beautiful 60-70 degree weather was depressing. I found myself discarding (I was putting away my winter clothing at this point) my normal winter coats for this Parka. Was it worth the hype? Would it really keep me warm? To answer my own questions: yes! This Parka was worth it and more! I didn't have to bundle up like I usually do in my other coats & the hood was obviously another added bonus. 

I have been wearing my Parka whenever there is a dramatic dip in the weather and today was one of those days. Le boyfriend and I decided to embark on a date day (cause at night would have been like 8 degrees and I would rather be at home.) to eat some delicious food and see Logan. Which by the way I recommend watching because it was SUCH AN AMAZING MOVIE! 

Styling my Parka with a pair of dramatic Flared Denim, a Plaid Shirt ( there are graphics on the back that I will show in another post ) & a blazer made it feel like a causal date day. Which it was. I opted for a beanie for the cold weather over a Fedora because it was extremely windy and I thought I was going to fly away. LOL.
