The snow came early and deep this year, and I’m trying to be resigned because we have three more months of it. But I think a new winter coat would help me be more resigned. Since I decided I didn’t want to make an orange one, I found some colorful alternatives*–because we’re going to need color to get through this.

J. Crew, finally on sale a little:

Vintage plaid on Etsy:

And a vintage CAPE (!):

Of course, with a cape you can’t wear a bag over your shoulder, so I’d need to get a new winter purse, too. I’d take this one if someone were giving them away:
Oh hai, typewriter purse. You should live with me.

*I have plenty of warm coats already and none of these (especially that purse) are in the budget, but just indulge me in my First World Problem, OK?
