Birthday wish list / pt. 1

FWK Engineered Garments Pea Coat

Look at the back on this FWK pea coat, and its rounded shawl collar. And the hand-warming pockets are genius. That's my favorite feature of the Barbour Bedale coat, so I'm always on the lookout for similar features on coats. I also think the Loeffler Randall black dot flats would be so much fun to wear to lecture.

I hope those of you braving the arctic winds are finding ways to stay warm right now. Thanks to the huge windows in my office, I need to stay wrapped up in my Virginia Johnson wool shawl while finishing up my syllabi and working on article edits.

Love the shoes. I love hand warmers features too.

I got on sale (still available) the Patagonia's Winter Sun Hoody which has this feature and is wind proof. It packs well for travel and has served me well so far although it is -14C today in Boston which requires some layering.

Hey Erica! Wondering how your Bedale has worked out for you now that you've had it while. I'm in the market...
Hope you and the boys are doing well!

Love the shoes! So much fun. I regret not buying more shoes like that in Bangkok.

I've been meaning to do a post about my Bedale and how it's held up over the past 5 years. Maybe this weekend I'll be able to take some photos. The sun is so rarely out these days...

A post about Bedale would be great. I'm looking at the Beadnell, too, but I think that the plaid fabric lines the back of the collar, which I don't like, and I've read the sleeves run short.
There is very little sun in Ithaca in winter... can't believe how much I have gotten used to that.
Perhaps that I why I am obsessing over this jacket.
