A SEASON OF CHANGE | 4 WAYS TO STYLE A PUFFER COAT

There are those garments that you wear for style, then there are those you wear because of their practicality—puffer coats being one of them. Hardly anyone runs up to a puffer coat and think it’s the most adorable thing that you can’t wait to buy, but when you live where it’s cold, you probably still own one.

A puffer jacket/coat is an excellent wardrobe addition in the cold months! Wear it like you would an coat – layer it on top of your outfits to arrive warm and cozy wherever you’re going. Puffer jackets have a sporty, ski-slope vibe which looks appropriate with casual clothes or gives edge to sweeter and sophisticated pieces such as pretty dresses and high-heel boots. A puffer jacket will keep you toasty this winter! Puffer jackets are versatile and more wearable than you may think. Throw them on top of any outfit – from your casual weekend clothes to fancier evening looks!

Make It Monochrome: Even the most basic looks can appear thought-out if you wear one color from head to toe. Don’t worry if the pieces don’t match exactly — slightly differing shades add visual interest.

Pair With a Skirt: Give your puffer coat a more romantic vibe by pairing it with a warm wool or knit midi skirt. For extra chilly days, add knee high boots and tights for a look that proves the utilitarian jacket can look extra chic.

Contrasts Your Silhouettes: Keep your look balanced by styling pieces with contrasting silhouettes together. If your coat is oversized, wear tighter pants or leggings. If you prefer a wider leg, choose a slimmer-cut jacket or cinch your coat with a belt.

Bright Details: Add interest to your everyday look by pairing your favorite neutral puffer jacket with brightly-colored accessories like a neon crossbody bag or patterned scarf. If you’re feeling bold, buy a puffer in your favorite rainbow hue for a topper that always stands out.



 

Many seasons of change bring deep sorrow, and in those times I urge you to cling to God’s everlasting comfort. Those are not the seasons of change I’m talking about today. Instead, I’m focusing on seasons of change that can bring delight with the right mindset.

CHANGE THAT TRANSFORMS : There is change that grows us. Change that makes us better people and better followers of Christ. Change that opens our eyes to things that we were once blinded to. Change that forces us to reevaluate our motives or life goals. And all of those types of change offer opportunity. Change gives us a reason to stop being complacent and become intentional.

God created us in community with Him and with each other and through change we have the opportunity to transform. We can grow closer to God, know ourselves better, and most likely, affect others in the process.



DELIGHT IN CHANGE

Delight in the midst of change comes in many shapes and sizes. Your delight won’t look like mine. I delight in the fact that I realized Who my strength comes from. I delight in the deepened relationship with God and with my family. I delight in being stretched to “see what I’m made of.” You may simply delight in a change of scenery or a fresh perspective and those are still good things, simple as they may be!

As life journeys forward I’m sure I’ll experience plenty more change. Honestly, it’s doubtful that I’ll always delight in it; however, I do delight in my growth and realization that I am not alone in my change. And neither are you. “God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in time of need.” Psalm 46:1
Be blessed this week my friends!
