“In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” -Mark Twain. A quote that cannot describe Toronto weather better. It’s almost mid April, and there’s been an uncanny mixture of sunlight, rain and snow (yes, snow, as matter of fact I’m seeing snowflakes outside right at this moment). I like mild seasons, but I’ll take Fall over Spring any day – it’s just a lot more mature and stable. Although, if I were to give Spring some credit, I do think it’s quite a symbolic season. To me it can symbolize a fresh start, perhaps aspire for something new and adventurous along with the blooming trees and flowers; it goes without saying that it ain’t easy to start anything, hence it isn’t always going to be petals and sunshine. There will be rainy chilly days, but we’ll adapt, and eventually smell the petrichor that accompanies the rain. How can we moderate the bumpiness of spring you ask? The answer is obvious! – be stylish, with some spring camel coats :-). Some fashion trends fade, some make come backs with time, and some others have staying power. I think this one, is a staying classic.
Buttoned up camel coat with an appropriate scarf defines the beginning of spring for me. Now, since you all know I believe in versatility, in my next post, I’ll show you how this coat can be styled to project a different vibe.
