It’s officially that time of year where the excitement of the holidays are over and we’re ready for better weather and spring. Am I right? Little snow flurries fell yesterday and while a couple of weeks ago we would have been excited, now it’s just like, really? Let’s just say, these California natives are ready for some warmer weather. The positive in this, I’ve been able to wear my puffer coats a ton.

I may have mentioned it a couple times on Instagram, but I don’t think we’ve ever talked about my love for the J.Crew Wintress puffer coat on the blog. This coat has saved my life. It’s thick, warm, water resistant, and the fit makes it my go-to. It has such a feminine and flattering cut, which is super important with these large and overwhelming jackets. A well fitted puffer coat can be hard to find for smaller frames, but the petite sizing on this one is perfect (wearing petite xxs). I loved my black version from last year (this one has a detachable faux fur hood), I recently bought this year’s version in navy (see me wear it here). The current version seems to be a little thinner, not as warm, and doesn’t come with the faux fur trim (all negatives in my opinion). I’ve been getting a ton of questions about the reviews stating the coat came with an order. I have a very sensitive nose and both my coats don’t have any smells.

If you’ve been thinking about picking up the Wintress coat for this winter, I would highly recommend it. I would say it’s a medium weight puffer coat and it’s proven to work nicely for the PNW winters. I’ve worn this black version to death, I may need to get another one in the same color (black is so versatile). Although, I love this one from Bernardo as well… I will keep you posted.

    This post comes at the perfect time as I am on the hunt for a new puffer coat! I, like you, am always looking for a style that is flattering on a small frame rather than overwhelm me in down. Glad to know the J.Crew fit works on small proportions!

      Thank you, Celeste. It’s not always easy trying to look pulled together when it’s freezing lol.
