Trench Warfare

With another long Chicago winter drawing to a close, I am excited by the mere fact that I can leave my apartment without seeing my breath every time I exhale. It is no longer absolutely frigid and most of the snow on the ground has melted, so I can't help but want the world to look like this:


Still, the weather here is so unpredictable. It will still be moderately chilly for a while, and even when the temperature is mild the wind makes being outside in insufficient clothing uncomfortable. In the past I have favored classic beige or black trenches for this time of year, but now I am craving a candy-colored trench like the ones aptly modeled by these stylish ladies:

The coats are all nice, but what I really want is to eat all those skittles!

Isabel said...

A skittles world would be wonderful. Very Willy Wonka, no?

Agreed, colourful trenches are fab. I have a canary yellow Burberry trench that used to be my granny's.

Candy-colored trenchs are definitely the best.

My reversible trench got too big when I lost weight, so that's good and bad. I officially need a new one.

Aww, thanks for putting up my picture! :)

I love-love-love the 2nd girl's coat . . .sort of granny-ish in the best kind of way.
