Keeping Warm with Abercrombie

Well, it’s happened. I’ve moved my lightweight jackets to the basement closet and brought my cold weather, heavy weight jackets up to the coat closet by our front door. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t make me a little bit happy. I would take cool weather over hot weather every single day of the week. I figure, you can warm up if you’re cold (usually), but it’s harder to cool down if you’re hot. If I could find a place to live that’s about 67º and sunny during the day and about 50º at night (and no humidity – I just want to live in a land with no humidity), I would move tomorrow. 
One of the things that I miss about living in Chicago is getting a ton of use out of a heavy parka. I loved bundling up before heading out the door on a cold day. I don’t miss 30 mph winds whipping my face, but that’s a separate issue. When I saw this parka from Abercrombie, I couldn’t resist it. You already know my love for this pullover and this cami, so it makes sense that I would move onto outerwear. I love that classic parka-style that it has with the big pockets, warm hood and extra length in the back. It also has a removable faux fur vest and hood-lining, which I love. I like that there are options when it comes to how I want to wear it. I’ve been truly impressed with the quality and longevity of the other things that I’ve purchased from Abercrombie over the last year or two. I’ve found their fit to be spot on, which makes it really easy to shop with them online. They offer pieces that can easily be incorporated into my wardrobe and fill some holes that I have. They have so many good New Arrivals right now, too!

I thought it would be fun to show two different ways that I would wear this parka – one as a classic parka and the other with the removable vest. I styled the vest with a close-fitting henley top and this beautiful scarf. I can see it being something that I’d wear to a casual holiday party, especially because of the pop of red in the scarf!
