Zara Puffer Coat (wearing an XL, more options below), Hat from Europe, LOFT sweater, Banana Republic pants (just repurchased again), Hunter boots, Prada sunnies, Kenneth Cole bag (this year’s, or similar)

San Francisco has decided to jump straight from indian Summer to frigid Winter and i’m feelin’ it on my walk to work every morning. I bought this puffer coat when it was on sale a few months back and reserved it for just this time of year. It is still in stock at Zara and is such a wonderful addition to my standard wool-coat collection for cold weather.



I love that this coat is intensely warm but doesn’t add a ton of bulk. When zipped up it sits very close to the body and doesn’t require a ton of layering underneath as it has a faux-down interior plus a wind-breaker lining. With a fur collar detail and zip-off hood, it has everything I could need to battle the elements.


I also love the exposed zippers at the wrist as well as the curved seaming along the back of the garment.


Finally, with tons of gold hardware and a double-zip and snap closure, it’s a stunner piece without feeling too overdone.


In other words, obsessed. Here are a few other similar coat options if you want something in the same shape but other fabrics:
