I never buy myself anything, and I know that most moms are like me. We buy everything for our families, and we take care of ourselves last. The last winter coat that I got was when I was in high school (and I graduated in 1995). I was definitely needing a new coat this year, and my Lands End Women's Weatherly Jacket fit the bill. The first thing I loved about the jacket was that it was not bulky. I am a heavier person, and trust me when I say this, I don't need any more bulk than I already have. Now, even though the jacket is not bulky, it is still super warm (and this jacket was put to the test today when it was snowing out this afternoon). The second thing I love is the fabric it is made from. It is very comfortable; I could easily go to bed wearing this jacket. I also have short arms, and I am able to adjust the jacket at the wrists. For those who don't have that issue, you have no idea what a pain it is to own clothing and coats that constantly covers your hands. The pockets are fleece lined, and you also have side entry handwarmer pockets (and since I don't like to carry a purse, these pockets come in super handy). There also is an inside mp3 player pocket and some security pockets. Lastly, there are a ton of colors to pick from. I personally like blue, so that is what I got.
If you or a loved one needs a new coat this year, definitely make sure you check out Lands End. You cannot go wrong with this brand!
