Maternity Style: Winter Coat

Functional, practical, and pricing have been my three main focuses when buying maternity clothes. Though I may think of expanding our family again, you never know when you'll actually be pregnant so to be spending a lot of money on clothes you'll only end up wearing for a few months didn't make sense. I knew one item I had to spend money on was a new winter coat. I did a lot of searching and waiting until I came across the right jacket. I wanted something that will keep me warm but still was fully functional post baby. I came across a few designs that had removable extended panels for pregnancy. Then I am across the Kimi + Kai Arlo Jacket which came with a cover insert for baby carrier. I loved this because Baby C is due in late March, and as any New York knows March and April are pretty unpredictable months. We always seem to get our last bout of snowstorms in March. With that thought I knew that a cover insert for me would be ideal. I was hesitant on the whole puffer, down jacket thing. I haven't worn a puffer jacket since college...though after last winter I've been saying I should really get one. So I did. I snagged the Kimi + Kai jacket as a birthday present. Though I came close to getting this ASOS one.

I will say the one thing I don't like about this coat is how narrow it as a the bottom. I have wider set thighs so the bottom is this jacket is a bit snug. So I do wish that it had a cut in the back for extra movement. But after taking it out in the snow this past weekend, it kept me warm and dry. Plus, I like that I don't need the extra layers to be warm, aka a scarf. Which means less layers I need to strip off myself on the train, because being hot and preggo on the train is no fun. In the end worth the money.
