The blazing New Orleans summers have recently given way to milder temperatures as we welcome Fall! In fact, today ushered in one of our first cold fronts of the season and temperatures barely reached 65. However, looking through pictures on Facebook today, I see that many Northern friends are seeing their first snowfall. While we won’t be seeing snow anytime soon (or ever), colder temperatures are on the way!
Living in New Orleans, we don’t need snow pants or down outerwear. But layering definitely serves us well as we brave cold temperatures on the parade route at Mardi Gras. I have purchased many items from Land’s End in the past and have always been happy with the quality and performance so I was thrilled to receive a women’s ThermaCheck 200 Parka to review. About the parka:
“Our parka is destined to be a valuable layering piece. The superior performance of ThermaCheck®-200 fleece blocks the wind, keeps you warm and toasty. Parka’s styling details include a zip front with an adjustable hood and drawcord waist. Zippered side pockets.”
The first thing I noticed about the parka is the softness. It is by far the softest jacket I own! After putting it on, it seems to be true to size and I love the princess seaming and drawcord waist which give the garment more shape than a typical winter piece. I also love that it has a hood which will be great for blocking the wind!
The ThermaCheck 200 Parka is rated for temperatures between 10° to 30° Fahrenheit, but if your climate gets colder than ours, you definitely need to check out the selection at Land’s End. My sister in law, who recently moved to Canada, loves the lightweight silk layering piece to hold in body heat. Or why not accessorize with a pretty scarf?
As I expected, I love my Parka from Land’s End. I can wait to snuggle up in it’s softness just as soon as the temperatures dip a bit more. Don’t miss any great deals by “liking” Land’s End on Facebook!
