Never, in all my years, have I heard the weather forecast call for “life-threatening” temperatures and wind chills. Media hype or not, it’s going to be cold in all parts of the country not only in the coming days and weeks, but for the remainder of the winter season. I really don’t mind the cold temperatures, until I have to leave the house.

Tomorrow, I have to get preschool boy and elementary girl to school. I have organized undergarments, pants, sweaters, tights, dress, coats, scarves, hats, mittens and boots for myself and two children. I’ve also made sure our “car woobies” (car blankets) are in place. Because we have lived in a “very” Southern climate since my eldest was born, we don’t update our winter wardrobes very often and I was struggling to coordinate our disparate items. Therefore, I’m searching online for some unique cold-weather outerwear to update our inventory.

The bonus? Because it is “end of season” for online retailers, many of the items you and I need for the coming months are already on deep discount. Squeeeeaall! Every online retailer has solid color coats, hats and mittens, but below are some of the unique items I’ve found (and ordered) in my search.
