Decisions, Decisions......


I have been fortunate enough to be invited on a trip to the land of 'Fire and Ice'

I'm so excited - not only will I get to see volcanoes, glaciers, and some of the most amazing geology on earth I also get to choose some new items for my wardrobe.......shallow moi!.... The first thing I though when I was told about the trip was well - yippee - because I've wanted to visit there since I was about 8 years old and the second thought was great I get to choose a whole new stylish winter wardrobe.....

So first up was the snow coat..... Well, it wasn't until I started looking that I realised that this was a major industry ..... there are literally hundreds of styles and manufactures all with different thermal technology to keep you warm, dry and comfortable. There are jackets that breath, there are jackets that regulate your heat, there are jackets with a 'good warmth to weight ratio' (what ever that is!) You name me a manufacturer and they will have just had a 'new and revolutionary' technological break through that's 'the best yet' ........ well, as you can imagine I was totally lost ..... so I decided to choose my jacket on style, colour and fit..........it's the same principle I apply to car buying - my husband does the car economy thing, the engine size thing etc. etc. I need to know the colour and stereo details and that's it!

So here are the ones I've narrowed it down to....



I love these two - they are so bright especially the orange/khaki one but would they be practical and will I wear it afterwards?



These two are more my colours, I usually stick with black for my coats so dark blues are in my comfort zone. I'm also getting rather swayed with fir trim collars.....



And then there are the smock style which I rather like, especially this spotty blue one - but I can get in a bit of a tangle, so once in it I probably wouldn't be able to get out of it easily......so this style is probably out......I can just imagine going into a warm coffee shop and taking out the rest of the patrons and staff as I take my coat off - not to mention knocking off cups of coffee......


I do rather like this one - so I'm going to order it in a few sizes to try - it's in a longer style, it's a safe colour, it looks rather slimming and it has a detachable fur collar ..... and it has revolutionary technology!!! - so what more can I ask for......

So that's coats covered and I've just seen some rather stylish snow boots.....hmmm...

Have a great weekend
