Oh goodness gracious, I hope my East Coast followers have been paying attention to the snow storm coming! This Maryland gal has been checking the forecast frequently and it appears we’re in for a modest 10-12″ of snow and ice. This storm comes at the worst timing for me because I have to fly home Saturday afternoon into Baltimore. I feel as though the snow is just waiting until I get to the airport to begin dumping on the runways so I can’t take off on time. Such is life, right?
In preparation for the inevitable freezing temperatures, I’ve dusted off my quilted jacket and pulled out my mom’s old duck boots. The quilted jacket I actually bought a few years back at Old Navy for $20. It was on clearance and the last size they had was an XS. Determined to buy the coat, I sucked it in and made it fit (more like stretched it out). My mom’s duck boots were from the 90s but I always steal them from her. Last spring, I found some Sperry duck boots for $35! Those have become my go-to shoe for wet days.
With all the sidewalk shoveling you’re going to be doing this weekend, I suggest you invest in a good quilted jacket and duck boots. I love the quilted jackets because they’re warm but still very mobile in terms of movement range. The duck boots offer the same thing. Wearing snow boots has always been something I dreaded because they feel so clunky.
The above jackets and boots are all under $100 and most are under $60! Normally, I wouldn’t pay that much for a single article of clothing (I’m a bargain hunter, remember?) but both of these items won’t go out of style and they’ll last for years. Keep an eye out for sales coming up in the next few months on clothes like these! I’ve already seen bikinis coming onto the sales floors so it won’t be long before winter jackets are 75% off!
