5 Fashionable Blues to Rock This Winter

Winter Blues
Temps dipped to a chilly 4° over the weekend. It was so cold I  had to break out the "big coat".   You ever hear that term, "the big coat"?  My great grandma used to call our long coats "the big coat" and once winter's chill hit, it was time to break out the "big coats".

A lot has changed since I was a kid.  Back in the day, the big coats were either black or beige.  Fast forward to today, bold and brightly colored coats and jackets are everywhere which means I can rock a jacket perfectly paired with my colorful boots.

A few weeks ago Macys had their annual sale and I picked up these ZiGiny booties in navy blue and I only paid $20 and I even earned some Swagbucks with my purchase.    
Finding the perfect "big coat" to pair with this boots was easy.  I found this Tom's Ware Womens Trendy Double Breasted Wool Pea Coat on Amazon for under $35.  The color perfectly matches my boots.  

A coat AND boots for under $100?  UNDER $100!!! That means I've got a few bucks to spare on a new hat or some much needed winter gloves.
Which of these fashionable blues would you rock?  Have you had to break out your "big coat" this winter?

I actually need a pair of gloves and the ones you featured are great because they really add a pop of color to my otherwise neutral palette. Really great choices!

Yes, I've had to break out my big coat several times. And I'm in Texas! It's usually rare to do that, but we've been having a cold winter.

I'm loving all the shades of blue because blue is one of my favorite colors. This winter, I've had to pull out the big coat more times than I can count and we are expecting snow today. Brrrr

I really like that shade of blue. It's dark enough to not seem out of place in winter, but bright enough to add a pop of color to an outfit.
