#157: Robe Time
Today was a seasonal milestone, a harbinger of change, a day that comes but once a year. Ladies and gentleman, today I bid adieu to my shearling and down coats, off and away they went into storage until next winter. Goodbye winter, hello almost-kinda-spring! This is a big deal, right? It’s time to relax ourselves out of that permanent shoulder hunch that becomes a New Yorker’s battle stance as we brave the bitter winter months. In this town the weeks are valued by what various layers we’ve been able to shed; bare shoulders are our freedom, heavy coats our shackles.
Great ombré created by the gradated reds, kind of an Art Deco vibe with the textile.
I’ve been removing the belt and wearing it as a coat. You know, because removing the belt somehow magically disguises the fact that I am wearing a bathrobe out in public. Some pajamas are just too special not to show off. Now go on, take off your winter coat and slip into something more comfortable…
