my favorite parka

If there’s one thing about winter wear that I absolutely love, it’s the widespread incorporation of faux fur. I’ve seen it on everything from scarves to boots this season, and always love the instant touch of whimsy it affords any ensemble. So in finding this cozy parka with a lavish fur hood… and cuffs as well… you bet I immediately started praying for snow!

Had you been following along on Instagram or SnapChat (LonestarSnaps) last week, you would have seen my excitement (this Instagram) over getting this beauty from Chicwish in the mail. There is so much about it that I love!

Beyond the amazing fur details (which look and feel surprisingly real) I am so amazed by the versatility of this jacket. A drawstring bottom allows you to cinch it closed into a bubble silhouette, and a detachable fleece lining adds an extra layer of warmth! Plus, the fur cuffs and hood liners detach to transform the parka into a lighter outer layer. (Making it a bit more practical for Dallas weather, if we’re being honest…)

It’s truly an all-in-one number that provides lots of different looks with one piece. And as excited as I am about it’s ability to transform into a lighter layer… let’s be real. I’ll be sitting inside, wearing this thing with the AC turned up well into July.

In my opinion, right now is a great time to purchase outerwear, as many pieces are on sale but you still have plenty of time to wear them before warm weather rolls around! Chicwish has my favorite selection, with lots of classic cuts in gorgeous colors. I’m especially loving this pale pink fur coat and this camel number, both under $100. View the whole collection here!

Love from Texas,


Thank you, Chicwish, for sponsoring this post!

  5. I love my coats as well, but one of the struggles of being from Texas is the lack of wintry precipitation. Hopefully soon though!
