Today’s outfit was inspired by two recent sightings. One was a blog covering the colorful coat trend. The other was Carole Burnett on a re-run of Law & Order: SVU. In addition to my passion for fashion, I’ve got a serious thing for crime shows. I don’t know where my passion for forensics comes from, but it’s deep and it’s real.
Back to fashion. I rarely pull out this short, green trench I bought at the Gap years ago and I don’t know why. I loved the color then and still do. I mean, it’s the color of happiness, for pete’s sake, and easily worn with neutrals – khaki, gray, navy – and with other colors, like red or olive green, for example. And, of course, denim.
The scarf: spotted amongst a street vendor’s wares in Paris 11 years ago. Enough said.
Oh, wait – that’s not enough said. Carole Burnett was wearing a brightly colored scarf wrapped and tied snugly around her neck on the aforementioned L&O: SVU re-run and it reminded me of this scarf, proving style inspiration is everywhere. You just have to be willing to be inspired.
Now, it’s enough said.
