I felt myself shiver today. Even on the coldest days, rarely am I ever “too cold.” Maybe it was the way I was dressed—not practically, as usual—or the wind chill, but today felt like winter. I really don’t mind winter, in fact, I’d rather have it than summer on most days. And this year, I’m especially excited about it because I have so many plus size coats just waiting for their time to shine.
My first—and most worn thus far—coat of the season is this gorgeous A Little Extra Moto Jacket from Fashion Nova Curve. There are so many plus size faux shearling coats out there, but they are so expensive. So I’m glad I was able to find this budget-friendly faux shearling coat. However, it did come with a few flaws. The faux fur material on the interior of the coat sheds for the first couple of wears. So I just recommend taking a lint roller to the jacket before you wear it. Another feature I wasn’t too excited about was the buckles on the lower sleeves. These buckles are very loose and often slide off the sleeve and make a lot of noise. One quick fix I think I’m going to try is using safety pins to fasten them to the sleeve. Other than that, the coat is absolutely gorgeous. On this day, I paired the coat with my all-time favorite lace-up sweater maxi dress, which is also from Fashion Nova. I’ve been wearing this dress for the longest time, and I am so happy to whip it back out of my closet for winter.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X, which is my usual size, and the jacket fits perfectly! I usually have problems with the arm area with most coats, but this jacket fits very well in the arms.
