Spring is slated to arrive next week, and yet I think this is one due date that is going to have to be induced, at least here in the Windy City. This crazy winter weather – relentless this year – still has us in a vice grip and it doesn’t appear that it wants to let go.


On the bright side, my wardrobe possibilities have been endless this season, thanks to a massive coat collection. Yes, I’m a collector of coats – overcoats, peacoats, parkas,trenches – you name the style, I probably own it. I have coats for every season and in a myriad of colors, textures, patterns and silhouettes. A little obsessed for sure, but nothing can change the look of an outfit faster than a great looking coat or jacket.

SpringBAh, the joys of living in a place where winter never ends. If nothing else, this weather has given me a chance to put a dent in that coat collection of mine.

As far as Spring’s arrival here in Chicago goes, not sure we’re going to be enjoying chirping birds or blooming flowers anytime soon – it’s snowing as I type this.

Hope the weather is better in your part of the world!
