WINTER. It’s starting to get pretty darn cold outside and just like last year I’ve kind of procrastinated on buying a proper winter jacket, but it’s just so hard finding one that doens’t make me look like a puff pastry. And, if I’m going to be living in it for the next couple of months, it better be one that I really like.

Last year I got through winter by wearing my fall coats and lot’s of layers underneath but this year I would love to find a nice, warm winter jacket. So guys, help me out here, if you’ve seen any awesome winter jackets, please share them in the comments below!

  1. love the outfit :) is the parka from this season? can’t find it on the website :(

  2. That first picture is amazing! So beautiful.
    I’ve got the same problem finding a proper winter coat. Lots of them are nice, but none is perfect. I guess I will continue living in the few I’ve had for years ( I bought the last one in 2008…)

  3. I Love the parka! I’ve been living in mine since Winter decided to hit London early! My Zara parka’s a lil longer than yours and it’s oh so warm and comfy. Love the look you have going!

  4. That parka is awesome :)
    My suggest for casual wear would be:

    http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/de/de/zara-W2012/269183/826603/WICKEL-DAUNENJACKE%20AUS%20KANVAS%20IN%20DREIVIERTELL%C3%84NGE

    You probably find this on Zara’s Swedish website also. It has a good length to not get in the way when sitting in a car, the cut looks well and stylish, it is warm and non-fuss, can be worn to almost everything.

    For the more elegant times I am at a lack of ideas tbh.

  5. Love how the first photo turned out. It is full of pale colors in background and it looked like it has snowed already. Thumbs up Mattias Swenson! You’re a great photographer. And you’re gorgeous Carolina!

  6. I bought this amazing Bondelid coat last month at MQ for a pretty good price as it was on sales. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any link but Bondelid has very nice and warm coats and jackets.
    Hope you can find a good one ;)

  7. Lovely outfit as always! Your hair looks amazing!

    I would suggest to definitely buy a fur (a real fur) so you will always look amazing and very warm at the same time!
    In other case, you can look at Elizabeth and James for great parkas!

  8. Last year I was aso wearing those thin coats but this year I’m definitely wear my dawn Levi’s jacket more often! this parka looks amazing, I think COS has some warm coats but if you want a really warm piece the best thing you can buy it’s dawn jacket! I’ve seen some in Zara ! xx

  9. Oh, i have the same problem with parkas, can’t seem to find the perfect combination of pretty one and warm one. It’s killing me every winter :(

  10. Try mango. They have winter coats that look a little like that parka, inclduing the hood, and the inside comes off so you can wear them in other seasons. I bought one last year in Germany :)

  11. Well given that I live in Montreal, Canada, and I know where you’re coming from, I can suggest the following:

    1. Pajar (I have a long one that keeps e very warm with rabbit fur in light khaki green and love it)
    2. Mackage (Very girly, all the girls are wearing them in my city, so maybe go for a different style)
    3. Moncler (Not that warm but very pretty and super pricey)
    4. Canada Goose (Really overrated but does the job)

    Let us know!

  12. I like your jacket already but there are some AMAZING furs, real and faux at Greenwich Market’s vintage store and Brick Lane Market. They are delicious. xx

  13. Beautiful photos!

    I love your blog, if you have a free minute, can you check out mine, as its new and would I would love to hear some advice from you the expert! It’s, http://www.nomadicdiary.com

    Keep up the great work,

    xx

  14. This parka you’re wearing is beautiful, and has only one downside – it doesn’t cover the uhmm.. behind.
    I find it so important, because when wearing jeans/sweater and the jacket ending up in the same place as the sweater, it leaves the back less covered and at times almost bare!
    As for where to buy, I have no advice, I just join your quistion and will see what more expirienced people have to suggest:)
