It’s late friggin March. It’s still freezing. I grab my coat, a scarf and hopefully some gloves, if I still have any pairs that match! Doesn’t matter what I’m wearing underneath, all anyone is gonna see is my coat anyway. And where oh where is the “out like a lamb” part of this “in like a lion” business?!
It’s that time of year when we Northeast Mamas can hardly wait to wear Spring clothing and Spring colors again. But it’s also that time of year when we can most appreciate having a variety of choices in outerwear to break the monotony. Sometimes during winter it’s so easy to get in coat or jacket ruts, while grabbing the same old, same old’s every day.
But after five plus months of wearing coats, (did I mention that snow is still floating around in the grey-hued sky?!) it’s essential to start getting creative and dig a little deeper into our closets. Or, if you are really feeling the fashion drabs and have a mood to match the dreary weather (Roarrrr!), don’t forget that this is a great time to add some pizzazz to your look right now by grabbing a deal on some fabulous Clearance Outerwear. Coats, jackets, and all outerwear are so dirt cheap right about now.
A colorful coat is the mood-brightening transition item purchase that will help you keep your fashion sanity through what absolutely HAS to be winter’s last blast. Or if you just can’t get warm enough, buy a warm yet fashion friendly down jacket that you’ll snuggle with for years! Even the very latest trends are on sale now and should be value-priced for at least a few more seasons! With some prodigious shopping skills, you may luck into something that will be a staple in your closet for years and boost you through this last stretch of our forward march toward Spring!
Some of my favorite coats, perfect to buy now!
Have you gone treasure hunting lately, Mamas? Now is the time. And then soon, very soon, it will be time for that “Out Like a Lamb” part, at last!
