When leaving for the office on brutally cold winter mornings, I often have the same debate with myself: Do I throw on my giant down puffer coat in the interest of not freezing to death and just accept the fact that I’ll look like the Michelin Man?  Or, do I throw caution (and practicality) to the wind (literally) and wear one of my more professional, tailored wool coats?  After many years of agonizing over these questions each winter morning, I’m happy to finally report that they plague me no longer thanks to the recent discovery of this magnificent, super chic Ted Baker belted puffer jacket.

The faux fur collar and waist-cinching belt turns this cozy puffer jacket into a perfect outerwear option for even the dressiest days at the office.  There’s also something about the shorter silhouette that makes it particularly chic when paired with a classic pencil skirt and pumps.  If you’re not into the cropped length, check out the longer version of the same Ted Baker coat here.

Speaking of pumps, with an all-black winter ensemble like this one, I loved adding a little extra interest with these insanely beautiful pumps with a pearl and crystal brooch embellishment at the toe.  And, if you think these are pretty, just wait until you see the other three colors!  Ted Baker is on FIRE.

    I am IN LOVE with the shirt and need to buy it asap. You look around the same size as me…may I ask which size you’re wearing? I haven’t purchased a shirt by Ted Baker before, so I’m unsure if it runs true to size. I know euro brands tend to run a bit smaller. Please let me know because I NEED it lol…Thanks! =) (Love everything you wear btw!)
