The thing about the camel coat

Introducing you to another member of my vintage coat collection, the Camel. He doesn't get out much (he's not so warm), but when he does, he sure seems to attract a lot of attention.

Camel-coloured coats have been everywhere this winter. And after wearing mine, I understand why. This shade of brown feels elegant and luxurious (even if you scored your coat secondhand for $10.) Putting it on turned my (very!) simple outfit into something pretty put-together looking. Who knew the power of the camel coat?

That's Lake Ontario ☝ ! (This part is obviously a bit of a bay, and it's much bigger and quite deep.) It has been so cold this winter that our Great Lakes here in North America might reach a record-breaking amount of ice coverage. We wandered down to take a look, and were able to walk about 20 feet out on the tall cliffs made up of frozen lake. Pretty cool! (The fact that we find this pretty cool probably speaks to how little there is to look forward to in Canadian winter...) 

Ice cliffs are cool and snow is pretty, but if this weather lasts I am going to run out of vintage coats to show you ;) How do you feel about this member of my vintage coat collection? Did you wear a camel coat this winter?
