Winter can be a difficult season, even though you’ve known it your entire life, suffering the Canadian snowstorms years after years. With my share of enduring this dreaded season for more than 20 years now, I have decided to do what I could to make it at least a little more enjoyable.
Why should we make winter even darker and greyer by only wearing black and dark coloured coats? I think it is actually the perfect season to wear some fun colours, to brighten the mood!I notice that many (too many) people tend to only wear bright colours during spring and summer time, which, to my opinion, doesn’t make any sense. It doesn’t compute in my mind.
When I found this amazing ocher jacket at the Salvation Army Thrift Store, I was very much excited to add it to my collection of bright coats. It is not the warmest of them all, but its hot colour makes up for it!
