The flowy trench
Instead of brooding over the fact that I WASN’t sitting in a bar decked out in faux Mexicana, sucking back margaritas and guac while blissful in my ignorance of what the holiday actually comemorates, this Cinco de Mayo, I decided to be a grown-up and made a very healthy vegetable stir fry for dinner for Mike, Viggo and I…and settled for at-home strawberry daiquiris instead of margaritas (I know, so adult of me). But, aside from marking the anniversary of the the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the mightier French troops in the Battle of Puebla (thanks Wikipedia!), early May also means that sometime over the trajectory of the next few weeks, it’s going to get warm out–too warm for socks, close-toed shoes, and jackets. While I’m eagerly anticipating the warmer weather, I have been taking advantage of our fickle spring to wear this flowy trench with everything from culottes and a blouse to distressed Levis and a white tee. Not only is it an easy throw-over that magically pulls everything together (see how it makes my simple jeans and tee into a bonafide outfit?), I feel like the more modern take on the classic trench gives my wardrobe an instant update. Plus I have a penchant for long, billowy proportions–have I ever written about how Golden Girl, Dorothy Zbornak, is my spirit animal? Well she is. But that’s a whole other post.
