A few weeks ago, while en route to my son’s cross country meet, I quickly realized that I was underdressed and ill-prepared. It was an unusually bitterly cold November day and the harsh winds were relentless. So, I made an impromptu decision to pop into Target for a Starbucks hot chocolate (sooo good) and a much warmer coat than the one I left the house wearing. I immediately spotted this long black puffer jacket for under $60 and I practically ran to the register! It may have been my quickest trip to Target to date. While I don’t normally opt for longer coats (they’re pretty restrictive when you’re driving and I spend a lot of time chauffering my kids around), they do come in handy when I find myself freezing at a sporting event or when I’m spending the day in the city and I know I’ll be doing a ton of walking. So, instead of splurging on a coat I’ll only use occasionally, this easy option checks all my boxes: functional, stylish, and affordable. I’m including more budget-friendly long puffer jackets below which are all under $75!
