Wardrobe Wednesday- Sasquatch Edition

I had a coupon for $10 off at Kohl's that was burning a hole in my pocket close to expiring so I thought I would use it to buy myself a new coat. The coat I've been wearing isn't as warm as I would like and is missing a button. Well that's not quite true. The button fell off the coat sometime last winter and has been riding around in the pocket ever since. So rather than sewing on a button, I decided to hit the after Christmas sale instead. I found a super warm yet not huge down jacket with a big fluffy hood that snaps closed. The snaps are especially convenient on cold windy days. I love it!

The problem is that there was no way my daughters were going to let me out of that store without at least walking through the girls section. We walked around just looking, then Mae discovered the secret to great shopping... a sale. And not just the it's Kohl's, everything has a sale tag on it. We're talking 65% off all coats and outerwear! How could I say no to that?

Well, I tried but obviously I caved and bought Mae a new coat. Plus it came with a matching hat and scarf. Binny isn't much of a shopper and was thrilled that she would be getting Mae's old coat. Works for me!

*Oh and the shoes on Mae's feet? Those are Sasquatch snowshoes my mom gave us a few years back. They strap right over the kids' boots to make big tracks in the snow.

It looks like a proper ski coat too. That's cool that it came with the matching hat and scarf. Mae looks pleased. :)

Kelly said...

Yeah, she looks way warmer than my kid. Clearly, we are not snow people.

cool beans! My boys NEVER shop with me (thank goodness). I remember when I was around 5 I asked my mom: "mom, what's an outlet?" She practically jumped out of her seat: "WHY?!! Do you see a sign that says that?!" lol

Well Mae looks all warm and cozy, but where's the warm and cozy Aliceson?

OMG! You wait until I post Willa's coat. You will not believe it. Let me just say that we may have the same tastes. Including picking something up at a sale! Our coat was $15!
