My existence can predominantly be summed up by me categorizing things in a Like and a Dislike column. Just kidding, but I do find myself doing that quite a bit. And, in occasional fun twists of fate, I pleasantly surprise myself by having to remove things from the Dislikes and placing them into the Likes. I know, deep stuff.
My comrades, you are luckily witnessing one of those instances. Allow me to elaborate: as you're aware, I tend to stick to the usual tones of black, white, grey, denim, chambray, along with the occasional pop of either metallic (festive!) or red (premier lipstick choice!). Therefore, I did not instantly
The grandpa nature - aka coziness - of the coat was an instant pro, however. While I initially recognized that it was long enough to keep my bottom warm and woolly enough to stave off a big chill, I remained weary of that hue. Was it aubergine? dark cherry? raspberry? And then it hit me like a ton of bricks: it was none of those colors! It was Burgundy! Merlot! Cabernet! Bordeaux! Rhone! I could basically channel all of my favorite red wines while donning what has become the star of this blog post.
That was enough to win me over and now it's one of may favorites to wear. Straight from Dislike to Like, go figure.
