What I'd Wear Wednesday: None of the jackets I've worn before

What I'd wear today if I could: Just a hoodie, like maybe this one from Old Navy. I don't mean like, just a hoodie and the rest of me naked. I mean, I have been thinking about what kind of jacket to get. (Remember my coat post?) My cool-weather coverups are older than old, and I need some new warm threads.

Here's my current jacket inventory: A dressy white wool jacket I first wore in 1986. Twenty-two years ago, peeps! A gray leather Indiana Jones-like lined jacket that is about as old, which was a gift I never wear because I look awful in gray. The red jacket I mentioned in my coat post, ugh. Another red jacket -- a lined windbreaker. Oh, and another red windbreaker, unlined. (Lots of red here.) A lightweight peach and white nylon-like jacket that's hardly warm. Assorted cardigans that don't add much warmth.

So it's cool again today, and I am thinking I really need that coat I blogged about before, but also something to replace those little lightweight jackets -- and retire all the red for a change. Then I realized most of Fly's cool-weather coverups are fleece hoodies (it's the only way he'll wear something on his head), and voila -- I found this lined hoodie. Just something for kicking around in.

And when I donate my old jackets, just think of all the closet space I'll save....

Cute hoodie! I'm thinking you're in need of a winter shopping spree. Every girl deserves a nice coat splurge. Too bad we don't live closer, we could do our winter coat shopping together. I'm sure in need as well!

It looks so soft. I live in California and Arizona. I own TWO jackets.

One-two. That's it.

I am surprised that you need much in the way of coats living in Florida? I desperately need to do a coat purge because I have way too many. Most of which are old and tired. Our coat closet is painfully overfull. I have a hard time throwing things out, though. I'm a terrible pack rat.

My daughter has that very same hoodie from Old Navy in wee size. She wears it almost every day.

I am in Canada and living in a snow storm as we speak. Jackets, coats, HOODIES are part of the wardrobe!

That hoodie is a cutie!

These look so cozy!

Except I'm sweating buckets right now - hubby's not home and I don't want to turn on the air con for just me!

Love that Old Navy hoodie. I need a new winter coat too, but I'm hesitant to buy one right now since I'm not back to my normal weight, and buying a coat in a larger size will depress me.
