Quick and Unfussy

The weather here lately has been pretty much a constant stream of bad weather's greatest hits: hail, driving rain, gale-force winds, cold, and gray. Not necessarily always in that order.  So despite the fact that it is still technically January,  I get a little restless looking at dark clothes, tall boots, scarves, long sweaters with leggings....look around you in winter and that is pretty much the uniform, myself included. But today, I was in a hurry, and more than a little fed up with the gloom.  So the pink coat came out. I love my pink coat.

I have had this shockingly bright coral-pink coat for a while now. Got it at J. Crew years ago and it has served me well. It really is just the thing when you want an uncomplicated way to do something interesting sartorially. Let's face it. 35 MPH winds like we are having today (yes, really) are not when you want to be wearing tons of flowy layers or a flippy georgette skirt. So something simple, unfussy, and classic, thank you very much. Even if it is probably a bit premature seasonally.  Added bonus: a great way to get dressed in a hurry, as I did today. A quick run to the shops in terrible weather? No makeup on? Choose colour! It covers a multitude of sins.

Shoes: Clarks, jacket: J. Crew, boatneck tee and jeans: New Look.


  1. I love this! I always wear bright colours through the winter - it can be so blah otherwise!
