I’m always in danger when I go to my local shopping mall. No matter what I’m going in for I often come out with something else entirely. That was the case with the bright yellow coat I’m wearing in today’s post. Those devious people at my nearby Macy’s seemed to know I was coming so they baited the trap with a splash of color in a rack right in the aisle where I’d be sure to see it. Actually I always have an idea of where the holes are in my wardrobe and if I see a good item to fill in, AND the price is right, it follows me home.
In this case I had been looking for a warm (both in temperature and color) yellow coat to help me get through the long winter to come. Bright springtime colors always remind me of my garden and the flowers that will come back after their long sleep. It seems I am not alone. One of my favorite actors, Mindy Kaling from The Mindy Project TV show was recently photographed in some similar outerwear.
I kept the pastel palette going with a light green cozy cashmere sweater. Short booties, black jeans, a felt hat and wool scarf around my neck finished off my look of the day and kept me nice and toasty warm. I think it’s just perfect for me to go out on another shopping adventure with my new BFF Mindy. Now if only she would return my calls!
