You may recall that earlier this month of March, I participated in another poetry reading as Allison. That particular Friday night here in Madison wasn’t too chilly, meaning that the comfy winter coat I had just added to my closet would have been a little too much. But then, it wasn’t anywhere near balmy, meaning a light jacket would leave me chattering my teeth on the walk from my car to Mother Fool’s.
But earlier that day, out of pure coincidence, I came across this College Fashionista article that gave a nice recommendation for the season: Layers are a great way to combat the chilly air that always comes with late winter/early spring weather March forces upon us. The article came with a couple of pictures of outfits featuring long coats. Problem was, I didn’t have any long coat in my closet.
Luckily, I checked out of work a little early that Friday, giving me a little extra time to head down the road to Target to see if they had any long coats. Thankfully, they did.
