This coat is the ideal pick for Fall and probably will be perfect for the winters out here too. The weather is cooling down a bit round these parts so there may be use for it sooner than I think. I love the quilting on the inside, it makes it feel a bit more cozy but I feel like it may make my small frame look a little bigger than I’d like?? That could just be me. And the extra padding inside could be the culprit but its much needed to keep the jacket warm. Although I’m not sure I will need it out here (I keep meeting native Californians who have never owned a winter coat!) I will definitely use it on my visits home.
